The Spending Trainwreck.

The United States Government has signed off on spending an additional $800B for anything and everything. The Left has been braying for government-directed "Industrial Policy" for decades, they now have their opportunity to implement it in a coherent manner...and they've blown it. The "Stimulus" is a trainwreck of directionless and unfocussed spending, driven by craven political desires for pork, patronage, and ideology rather than any kind of coherent plan to guide the repair of the nation's economy. Yet another trillion dollars to hobble our children's future. God Save the United States of America.
