I see alot of people asking questions regarding the stimulus. I also see alot of people bashing it, and saying how horrible it is, but no one ever suggests any other solutions. So, do any of you have a better idea? Instead of being negative about EVERYTHING, why don't we think of ways that we could make things better?Answer Question

Tax cuts. Tax holidays. A stimulus pkg that did NOT have all the pork. I don't have a problem with a pkg to stimulate the economy but even Obama said it wasn't perfect. So MAKE it perfect. Don't allow back alley deals and no time for people to read it!
I don't think it was too much to ask the people who voted yes to READ the bill first!? That's what I want. I want them to READ bills before the sign away that kind of money!!

OH and I did NOT agree with the first pkg either! So please don't give the standard "bush did it too" responses.

Across the board 5 percent tax cuts for all. A 5000 child tax credit for those who actually pay in 5000k or more a year. The 15000 tax credit for purchasing homes for any home buyer not just first timers. No one should get more than they paid in taxes in with any of the tax credits. Homes would be purchased by the middle class. Many would have extra money in their pocket and by this holiday season would spend it. It was the Republicans idea so it was all cut. Republicans wanted those who pay in taxes and don't get it all back and then some to have some relief Democrats felt differently.
