BUSH still in office. BBT wont surge til Barack takes over
Sending checks to people is generally not a good use of funds, which is why Obama's tax plan won't work. He wants to raise taxes on people who invest and create jobs so he can send more checks to people who already don't pay federal income tax. That may breathe some life into the economy, but it won't last and it comes at the expense of long-term growth through private sector job creation. We don't necessarily need big tax cuts, but we definitely don't need tax increases.
