Surprise, Surprise

"Stimulus to Cost $43 Billion More than Estimated". Things always cost more than expected when you're spending money which belongs to other people.

Obama and congressional Democrats enacted the law, arguing it would provide a quick jolt to the economy. Republicans opposed the law, saying it would increase deficits and wasn't designed to work quickly.

So who was right? It doesn't matter now, does it. The money is already committed. The people who enacted it don't care that they were wrong; they got what they wanted. Do you really think any of the big spenders look at this and say, "Oh, dear, we shall have to try to do better next time!"?
