Economist Thomas Sowell on the Democratic stimulus bill.  Out of $355 billion newly appropriated, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that only $26 billion will be spent
this fiscal year and only $110 billion by the end of 2010. Dr. Sowell says using long, drawn-out processes to put money into circulation to meet an emergency is ineffective.
