Askewsme? In order to stimulate the economy, consumers need to buy shit. Not a single penny of the trillion dollars ended up in the hands of consumers. Most local governments are just as upside down fiscally as the State and Federal government...any money given them had already been spent months or years before. Particularly in the state of California.Because the stimulus is working. That was the whole point of sending money to local governments.
Or were you seriously expecting it to "trickle down" to the actual workers?
We've had CORPORATE stimulus, not real stimulus.
As pointless as they were, the $600 tax rebates that Bush sent everyone were far more effective than the "stimulus" plan currently being employed.
