Bruce Bartlett Burns Bridges

First read this biography (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Bartlett) and then read this post (http://capitalgainsandgames.com/blog/bruce-bartlett/1200/why-economy-needs-spending-not-tax-cuts).

As Barry Ritholtz says (here), when this guy burns bridges, he doesn't fxxx around.  I would add that this is not only burning bridges, it is also taking out all the supports and footings, as well as removing all evidence of roads leading to and away from the bridges.

I have gone through the numbers Bartlett cites and can not find any holes.  Maybe someone else can do better.

Of course, lefties or righties are welcome to quote ideology, but I will not respond in kind.
