The stimulus is a classic bait-and-switch. Once the highways are built and social-service case loads have increased, Wisconsin will be left with the bill to maintain the new roads and services.
Once you start providing "schoolchildren" and their parent(s) with three meals a day (plus "after-school snack"), any cut "hurts the children."
It's so friggin' obvious, I don't understand the objections.
