That's a mighty big assumption that doesn't test well against history or recoveries around the world. Wait until the economy's humming, then shrink the government (including the 15% of which is in this region if that's what you think will save the day). That's the core mistake of your tea party ideology: a lot of emotion but not much context.
Everything is okay. Just keep printing money.
