Wow. The forces of reason are really making an impact when even part of the government agrees with Austrian theory.
The analysis concludes that the stimulus will put downward pressure on Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and wages after 2014.

Committee, said the CBO analysis underestimates the long-term economic
“Number one, the spending spends out very slowly, so it doesn’t give
you much of a pop,” Ryan told CNSNews.com. “Number two, it costs much
more than advertised. Number three, at the end of the day, it would
have been better to do nothing for the economy given that it [the
stimulus package] will reduce GDP growth and wages.”
In the end, all we have is a government that creates a crisis, then uses the crisis for its own benefit, and then lengthens the crisis.
