Worst part of economic stimulus package

Gosh darn it! Section 1604 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (aka Economic Stimulus) states

None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available in this Act may be used by any State or local government, or any private entity, for any casino or other gambling establishment, aquarium, zoo, golf course, or swimming pool.

How are we going to stimulate the economy without building any of these items essential to the country’s infrastructure?????
