Earlier stimulus efforts by the adminsitration did not work out as advertised, yet Obama, Democrat politicians, Paul Krugman, practically all pundits on the Left and even many GOP moderates are calling for another round of stimulus. This time, though, they say it should be done right.
If all of these stimulus promoters believe it's the right thing to do, and they have in mind the right amount and the right kind of stimulus, then we should see a plan showing how much money is needed and where the money will go, how long the stimulus will be needed and what type of transition is necessary to move from government spending to private sector investment.
It appears to me that the Left wants this issue as a political weapon but isn't serious about an actual plan that can be implemented and executed. The GOP moderates who clamor for stimulus are just sticking it to the Tea Party faction, hoping they will look even more extreme in their unreasonable obstructionism. It's hard, though, to say something is obstructed until something real and measurable is offered, promoted, explained, justified and defended. Is the call stimulus a ploy, or is there a real plan?
