That's going to happen, however, when you hit the second-worst economic downturn in American history.
During the Great Depression, we had a gigantic influx of federal spending to supplement demand and history's largest land war to stimulate the economy.
The only serious federal spending we've committed to following this recession was four years ago, too tepid, and it was immediately followed by three times
that amount in deficit reduction.
Gee, I wonder why the recovery's so slow.
