We have the receipt

The father was seen as doing nothing to turn around a sluggish economy, and for that, he lost his job. The son learned a hard lesson and now no one can say he’s been idle. Tax cut after tax cut. Spending program after spending program. And we all have the $500 billion dollar receipt to prove it. So fine, he’s made an effort. But to what end?
Come November, if the economy is still sluggish and job growth still slim to none, the question has to be: what exactly did he buy with our money? Does this feel like a $500 billion dollar recovery to you? And if not, isn’t getting the receipt and nothing to show for it one helluva lot worse than the sins of the father?
