Has this administration already gone completely crazy, or did they just all drop out of economics 101? How do you spend money to get out of debt? I can understand job creating, but a $500 or $1000 stimulus package? That's tax payers giving money back to themselves. How has cutting government programs, or streamlining to make them more efficient (because we all know how efficient government programs are) and using that money to lower our debt? I'm sick of hearing "Well if France would pay us back for WWII..." WHO CARES! We decided to spend the money on them, and our government decides to keep spending, non stop, and with increasing effort. We have the capability to fix this problem by just not spending so much, but lack the ability.
