Do you believe the political talk, we need to spend more money to get out of a recession?

How does that even make sense? If a normal person was in debt and couldn't afford anything, would he say I just have to spend more money? Usually this spending entails inflation, which lowers the value of the dollar and prices go up. So if you believe spending more money is the answer please explain why.

    Spending money circulates money, but where does that money come from? Usually it comes from inflation, which raises prices. So even though you are circulating money people can't buy as much anyway.
