Paul Krugman:

So if you’re a serious Keynesian, you’re for maintaining and even increasing spending when the economy is depressed, even though revenue has plunged; but you’re for fiscal restraint when the economy is booming, even though revenue has increased.

More and more, I'm embracing Keynesian economic theories. They seem to be the most rational. (NOTE: Mitch Daniels' insistence on maintaining a surplus and not resorting to tax refunds for political gain is evidence of his real maturity and nuance in economic matters.)
