Economy Rockford: More Spending is a Waste of Money

Why would you need a second stimulus plan when the first one didn’t work? 23 News financial expert Rick Bastian says billions of dollars of our money has been spent in the first round of stimulus and we have little to show for it. Spending billions more dollars to stimulate job creation as congress is pushing, won’t put enough local residents back to work. Bastian says the government can’t create income for each of us like the free market will.
