Anyway, I was looking up the word "stimulus" to try to help her out, and I happened across an economics website that contained the following quote from Henry Morgenthau, FDR's Treasury Secretary, from 1940, eight years into the New Deal:
“We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and now if I am wrong somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosper. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises. I say after eight years of this administration, we have just as much unemployment as when we started. And enormous debt to boot.”Nothing ever changes. It didn't work then; it won't work now. The only thing that will happen is government will get bigger, and more tax dollars will flow to constituencies of the Democratic Party.
