Mickey Kaus shows what happens when you put liberal Democrats in charge of moving the economy forward. Here is the money quote:

"a year was wasted on mindless, union-demanded bureaucratic attempts to disingenuously replicate the labor market. Did Obama not know this would happen when he allowed the stimulus to be Davis-Baconized, or did he not care? [Update--Choice #3: He knows and cares, but is too weak to stand up to the unions."

Meanwhile in Portsmouth New Hampshire another Stimulus program that was supposed to help actually hurts. So the town says: No Thanks! again the money quote:

"PORTSMOUTH — As stimulating as it might have sounded at the time, the city recently declined $2.5 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for its new water treatment plant because federal wage regulations would have forced the city to pay more for the project."
