Other Republicans, like economist Kevin Hassett, a former adviser to McCain's presidential campaign, say it might be better to focus on policy fixes that could have long-term impacts, not just short-term impacts. "You can have a stimulus every quarter from now until we go bankrupt," Hassett said. "But would that be good policy?"
I don't believe that spending more is going to help. I believe that the original stimulus in fact lengthened the recession and made things worse. Giving billions of dollars to failed companies was a bad idea. The DOW is once again over the 10,000 mark but and thus the economy no longer is in Recession (Yea right) But how long will that last?

I am sorry but the first stimulus package did not go where it was supposed to.
