Well, I hope it was, anyway. It isn't controversial to state that there are a lot of underfunded and deferred infrastructure projects in this country. It isn't controversial to state that expenditures on such projects (and extending UI and increasing food stamps) perform as a better stimulus than do tax cuts. It isn't controversial (right now) to state that we need a massive, expensive, and effective stimulus. The conclusion one should draw from these uncontroversial points is rather obvious.
