Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
Using incentives to increase private sector investment which leads to job creation is beyond the comprehension of someone who thinks that a Nation could and should spend its way to prosperity
NY and California are both trying to emulate Texas's supply side iniatives by giving tax breaks to Companies that relocate there . NY gives a 10 year tax break to Companies that relocate there so dont tell me Supply side doesn't work, of course it does
And Spain spending led to more than just a few ghost towns. Politicians were actually prosecuted which is what should have happened here.

I'm not sure people think reduced government spending helps the economy. What they fear is that the temporary advantages of government overspending will finally come to an end and the ensuing crash will be miserable. It doesn't matter who prints the money. You cannot pick money from trees forever. It is not a sustainable activity. Just look at the what has happened to countries who have seen a loss in confidence in their currency.
What does help the economy is a reduction in taxation because it leaves more money in the hands of taxpayers who can spend in a sustainable way. The left wing economics will eventually hurt us badly. It can't be otherwise.
