ROI for Stimulus Spending

Interesting article on what parts of stimulus spending have the most impact on the economy.  Tax cuts return less than a dollar to the economy per dollar spent, while direct payments like food stamps and unemployment benefits return more than a dollar per dollar spent.  Makes sense... the unemployed have to spend on basics like food and housing.
