I am struggling to understand why the Democratic Party, which has been fundamentally opposed to lowering taxes, would support an economic “stimulus” plan which includes
giving returning money to the people who earned it rather than keeping it in the coffers of the thieving omniscient federal government?
Isn’t this admission that letting people control their own money actually helps boost the economy really just tacit acknowledgement that lower taxes and less government create prosperity? If so, then why do Democrats (and Republicans) continually ask for more and more of our money at every level of government?
Other than the alleged “eight to sixteen-hundred dollar” tax rebates that we’ll receive from this stimulus plan, I have an extremely limited (read: no) knowledge of what the plan entails. However, I do tend to operate under the belief that anytime you can get your money back from those money-grubbers on the Appropriations Committee, it’s a good thing.
Speaking of tax rebates and how they stimulate the economy, any thoughts on when the legislature might help out the taxpayers and give us back the money that Sonny decided we didn’t deserve?
