The Response to the President's Stimulus II

Today's Wall Street Journal has three articles that, together, make the broadest case for doing the opposite of what the Obama Administration has proposed to spur job creation.  The first makes the case that the Administration was wrong to have believed that Stimulus I would be effective, the second argues that Stimulus II will not work, and the third is a brief description of the GOP alternative.

Stephen Moore judges the Administration in terms of the promises they made about how they would govern and the effects that their policies would have.  

Thomas Donohue of the US Chamber of Commerce explains from a businessman's point of view why he think that the President's Stimulus II plan won't work.

House Speaker John Boehner (R, OH) outlines what should probably be considered the GOP plan, and not just his own.
