That is unless you're into MS economics which is Keynesian economics. Unfortunately, even Republicans fall for the BS that govt spending helps the economy.

Spending cuts will not aide economic growth. I am not saying we shouldn't cut spending, I am just saying that they won't aide economic growth.
