Fred Thompson tells us the government's plan to fix the economy: spend our way to success.
While the economy does need us to continue spending on the necessities we usually purchase, we don't need to make any special efforts to "spend our way to prosperity."
We also don't need the government to waste more of our money for us.
"My favorite stimulus idea is to give everybody who needs a job a shovel. We put half the people to work digging holes. We’ll get the other half to fill 'em up. Everybody gets a check and the unemployment problem is solved. And there’s no limit to the number of holes we can get Americans to dig and fill."
