What would you do if you could?
This is a spin off of another question about the bailout. How would you purpose we spend the stimulus money? What is actually pork to you?(This is imo, relative to what one finds to be a priority.) I know some say we should cut taxes for the rich 1 percent of Americans. Some say we should help the poor with welfare, unemployment benefits etc.
Or maybe you think we should stand by and do nothing.
I would love to hear everyone's opinion. Please no bashing. If you aren't serious about answering, please don't bother.
How would you purpose we spend the stimulus money? Tax Cuts. How about no corporate taxes to get companies BACK in amercia building industry. How about Alternative Energy Production (not research, but actual production). How about Payroll tax holiday.
What is actually pork to you? Is the "pet" project of the politician put in the bill to accomplish their own agenda. And it rarely has to do with the bill. (ie: contraceptions do not stimulate the economy...

We should cut taxes for all. The bailout (stimulus) should be all about tax cuts and tax breaks for companies that provide jobs in the USA. On our soil we pay higher corporate taxes than many other countries a reason so many leave our soil. The rich pay most of the taxes so to raise their taxes is insane they pay most of them anyway. We need to lower them and things will ease up. This has worked before. We can bailout companies and homeowners all day. They will go back to the same bad habits that got them where they are now. Let some companies and people go under it will suck but in time it will get better.
