The economy didn't crash because of government spending. If anything, they weren't active enough in regulating financial markets as the private sector started gambling with derivatives and in protecting consumers from horrible lending practices.
The people who predicted the bubble buildup, and eventual economic collapse, blame the collapse on too much intervention in the market place, not under regulation. I think I'm going to listen to the people who actually saw this coming, not the people who want to figure out what happened after the fact.
