Slideshow: Great Stimulus Ideas from the Great Depression

Our favorite congressperson Michele Bachmann doesn't think much of the stimulus program. She says "Congress isn’t helping America to dig itself out of the recessionary hole, we’re merely digging it deeper."

But what would her State of Minnesota be like if there had not been a stimulus project like the New Deal? Would shipping be able to get to the state? Would it have electricity? Art Galleries?

Watch this slideshow of some of some of the projects paid for through stimulus programs like Rural Electrification, the Federal Art Program, the Works Progress Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps: Great Stimulus Ideas from the Great Depression
