I have been more than a little amused by the narrative since the multiple stimuli have been shown to be abject failures wasted against our depressed economy. Calls are almost universal from on high for "belt tightening" and "deficit reduction" now that the fat rats have run off with the cheese wheel. Of course you stop spending now! For pity's sake the credit cards are all full and the checking account is bone dry!
All they are really saying is, "We partied. Now you pay for it, Chump."
