    Spending tax money to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq did not create many jobs other than those created by the no-bid contracts for Republican campaign contributors.  I think most people here can agree that this was not a good way to create jobs.

    Giving tax money to Republican billionaires so they can build pro sports stadiums creates fewer jobs than people think.  Let me know if you need a link.

      possible, but it is a (dead-end) stimulus.

    •  Obviously cuts in certain specific areas (0+ / 0-)

      are a good thing.  Nobody's saying that nothing should be cut or that all spending is equal.

      In fact we want our government to spend our tax dollars wisely, including on investments in our future such as education and infrastructure.

      Some people fight fire with fire. Professionals use water.
