    The total cost of the ARRA was closer to one trillion.

    Plus, you're comparing total Federal spending under FDR to just Stimulus spending under Obama.

    Use the correct numbers, and go back and recalculate.

    Step 1: Someone writes a highly misleading diary with a selective use of facts. Step 2: Someone else writes a highly misleading diary to counter the first diary with a selective use of facts. Step 3: Someone says Obama is worse than Hitler. Repeat.

          The Act specifies that 37% of the package is to be devoted to tax incentives equaling $288 billion and $144 billion, or 18%, is allocated to state and local fiscal relief (more than 90% of the state aid is going to Medicaid and education). The remaining 45%, or $357 billion, is allocated to federal spending programs such as transportation, communication, waste water and sewer infrastructure improvements; energy efficiency upgrades in private and federal buildings; extension of federal unemployment benefits; and scientific research programs.
          144 billion plus 357 billion is 501 billion in spending programs.

          Of which only about 170 billion are infrastructure dollars.

          •  Tax cuts are stimulative (0+ / 0-)

            Not as stimulative as infrastructure, but stimulative nonetheless. You don't get to fudge the numbers.

            Step 1: Someone writes a highly misleading diary with a selective use of facts. Step 2: Someone else writes a highly misleading diary to counter the first diary with a selective use of facts. Step 3: Someone says Obama is worse than Hitler. Repeat.
