What Does It Matter What We Spend It On?

Municipalities that are getting stimulus plan money are finding out, not only is there no such thing as a free lunch, but they don't even get to pick from the menu.

The funds are coming with notations of what exactly they can be used on.  For example, you want to add solar panels to you municipal building, no problem.  Build a new one, one that might actually make effective use of those panels?  No.

No community centers.

No libraries.

Cops get new buildings but no additional members.  Firemen get additional members, but no buildings to keep them in.

Boy, this really was well thought out.  I really should stop bitching about it, I know.
