Steve Austria (R-OH) Doesn’t Know When the Depression Happened

Hi, I am from BeaverCreek.  Stop laughing.

U.S. Rep. Steve Austria said he supports a scaled-down federal economic-stimulus proposal, but the Beavercreek Republican told The Dispatch editorial board that the huge influx of money into the economy could have a negative effect.

“When (President Franklin) Roosevelt did this, he put our country into a Great Depression,” Austria said. “He tried to borrow and spend, he tried to use the Keynesian approach, and our country ended up in a Great Depression. That’s just history.”

Most historians date the beginning of the Great Depression at or shortly after the stock-market crash of 1929; Roosevelt took office in 1933.

I don’t know it this guy is retarded or trying to rewrite history.  I’ve been to Beavercreek, Ohio, so I am guessing he is just retarded.
