Seems Like a Capital Idea to Me.

Hey, here's an idea, Nancy Murtha O'Reid. How about you bail out the American taxpayer? Instead of swizzling around hundreds of billions in a fruitless central-planning exercise, cut federal income taxes to zero for 90 days. For every taxpayer. I can guaran-dam-tee that less mortgages will fall behind, more cars will be purchased, retail will go nuts, etc.

  1. I don’t mind paying my fair share of taxes, I just want the government to spend our money wisely. Is that too much to ask?

  2. Uh-huh. Yeah. Like that’s gonna fly with gummit. I’m in with you, but damned if I’m gonna hold my breath waiting for it to actually happen.

  3. Kevin used “government” and “wisely” in the same sentence! Ha! good one!!

    While I actually agree with Kevin, the founding fathers figured out that those two are pretty much mutually exclusive so they devised 3 seperate branches of government, then threw in the 2nd ammendment for good measure.
