Repeat after me: The stimulus package should be timely, targeted, and temporary. Instead, it is a sprawling, undisciplined smorgasbord of pent-up partisan fantasies, therefore I will not support it.
Instead I urge my Congressman or Senator, and to support the Fix Housing First Act, as revised by McConnell and Alexander to provide new and refinanced mortgages for 4%. (The original Fix Housing First Act does not include this revision.)
Repeat if necessary, then contact that worthless Congressman or Senator, and tell him/her.
This would stimulate consumer spending.
P.S. The banks should also be nationalized.
P.P.S. Tax cuts are not the answer for this economic mess. In fact, Congress should pass my proposed tax increase, the Incompetence Tax, as part of the stimulus bill.
For Republi-cons who think differently, consider this:
Republi-cons got us into this mess:
Different problems require different solutions:
This sums it up well:
Although if it helps, think of the proposal to provide new and refinanced mortgages for 4% as a tax cut.
P.P.P.S. Finally, for those who think we should do nothing, it could get a lot worse. Think Iceland.
