You and I will most likely always disagree about the borrowing of monies, I get that.
Running a deficit is always stupid, IMO. Running a deficit and hoping things get better down the road seems like a disaster plan. Much like the road the US is going down.
Again though, any hard data on exactly who got that money? How much it was? Etc....
Deficit spending is not my opinion. It's established economic basic tenet proven time and again.
