Are Democrats USING the recession as an EXCUSE to PUSH through spending PROPOSALS that won't IMPACT...?

the economy until after the recession is over? http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090120/ap_on_go_pr_wh/obama_stimulus Less than half of the $30 billion in highway construction funds detailed by House Democrats would be released into the economy over the next four years, concludes the analysis by the Congressional Budget Office. Less than $4 billion in highway construction money would reach the economy by September 2010. The economy has been in recession for more than a year, but many economists believe a recovery may begin by the end of 2009. That would mean that most of the infrastructure money wouldn't hit the economy until it's already on the mend. Overall, only $26 billion out of $274 billion in infrastructure spending would be delivered into the economy by the Sept. 30 end of the budget year, just 7 percent. Just one in seven dollars of a huge $18.5 billion investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy programs would be spent within a year and a half.

It doesn't matter, most of the highway construction needed to be done anyway. Personally I like being able to drive on a good road and over bridges that have been properly maintained.
