The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was the largest stimulus bill ever appropriated by the US Congress. It has widely been panned as ineffective and wasteful government spending. But did it in fact work? In this episode we discuss the stimulus and its many facets, and analyze whether conventional wisdom on the effectiveness of the bill is correct.

"[T]he distortions and lack of credibility of the Obama administration have matched and now trumped those of its predecessors. The public may have long ago forgotten that Obama did not close down Guantanamo as promised, or cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term, or stop the revolving door of lobbyists coming in and out of the executive branch. "The public may even have forgiven the president when the stimulus bill never lowered unemployment as promised, or when his misleading boasts about vast increases in oil and gas production came to fruition despite, not because, of his efforts.
"But the distortions and broken promises have now become so frequent that many at home and abroad are finally tuning out the president. Almost nothing promised about the Affordable Care Act is proving true. Contrary to presidential assurances, Obamacare has not lowered premiums or deductibles. It will not reduce the deficit or improve business competitiveness. It really will alter existing health plans and in some cases lead to their cancellation. Signing up is certainly not as easy as buying something online on Amazon.
"Two considerations often turn presidential ethical lapses into political disasters. Unfortunately, both apply to the present administration."
Well it has been another week and the nation continues to rack up debt at a record pace, more importantly it would seem that nobody in the political ruling class seems to be interested in doing anything about our spending addiction.
Whether it was Tarp, the auto bailouts, the massive expansion of Medicare, an explosion in the EBT programs, the "stimulus" , qualitative easing,or Obamacare, the past decade has seen a rapid increase in debt with no end in sight.
With no true opposition from the GOP , the Dems have had what the what, when the wanted it and how they wanted it , if the GOP won't stand in opposition then we must become the resistance!!! So welcome to the resistance!!!
There is a thin line between Saturday night and Sunday Morning and I am living proof of that!!

To be forever fighting conditions and meeting emergencies in our minds is an obstruction to experiencing a greater good. There is a certain flexibility in nature which we overlook. The Spirit cannot flow in freedom when our thoughts are rigid, then the gates of abundance are closed and our cicumstances become cramped.
Unless we sense a good which we do not see and believe in a Power greater than our finite efforts, we shall thread around in a vicious circle of attainment.
When we are willing to let go and to receive into our intellects the new stimulus; when we have learned that the Law which creates and maintains all things is inseparable from our own thought, we are ready to demonstrate, and not until then.
