Spending our way out of recession makes about as much sense as someone drinking their way out of alcoholism.
By "spending",of course, the good Congressman doesn't mean he's encouraging you to spend more of what you've got. Not at all. What he means is he wants to take away 40, 50, 60% of private wealth from those of us who produce it, and use that to pay off those who produce nothing (other than votes), expand the government payroll and contract gravy-train, and then offer to give back a pittance of what they took from us to spend (with strings, of course). For which he expects us to be eternally grateful.
