A local TV station’s media blog posted TN’s portion of the Stimulus package swag. I offer a quick line item by line item analysis. Short version? Of the $3.8 billion, $2.4 billion is spent on Medicare and Education – hardly immediate economic Stimulus. Of the remaining $1.4 billion, less than half would reasonably be considered stimulating spending, given the money stands a good chance of being spent in the Public Sector.
His full take here. (Link was bad before. Fixed!)
