Anyone who touts experience is foolish. Experience can only teach if we choose to listen and this is a HUGE if. Let's recap some recent events:
Bush spends 300 Billion in stimulus checks
700 Billion in TARP funds are approved
Neither of these events solved any problems. 1 trillion in spending and zip, zilch, nada. So what is the next proposal:
800 billion in more stimulus spending
So how is doing the same thing that didn't work in the past going to work in the future? I don't know and neither does anyone else.
