Environmental Capital - : Steven Chu: DOE Working to Spend Stimulus Money Faster
One of the big knocks against much of the proposed spending in the stimulus packages is that it will take years for the money to trickle into the economy. New energy secretary Steven Chu vows to make sure that doesn’t happen on his watch, and pledged to try to spend about half the department’s $35 billion to $40 billion in expected funding this year.

In an interview with Stephen Power of The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Chu said the department’s legacy of conservative decision-making might have to be jettisoned to get that money out the door quickly.

Government spending does not help the economy. You can spend all the government wants, the people doing the work end up in the same place when the money runs out -- The unemployment line.

Nobody is going to stock retail or build new anything based on somebody coming in with a check. They will just take the money and may or may not order any more.

Seems like reparations to me ...
