"Stimulus Package" quote

On my way into work this morning, I heard a great quote on the economic stimulus package from Steve Czaban, a sports commentator that I listen to in the morning.

Steve said (as best as I can remember it):
If the government can just turn a dial and stimulate the economy, why doesn't it do it all the time?

Why doesn't it just keep cranking quarters into the vibrating bed that is our economy and just keep it going?
Of course we (and he) knows why. They have to get those quarters from us. And by the time we get them back, they seem to be a little lighter than they were when we sent them to DC.
