    tax time. At least, that was the original Democratic plan which seems quite elegant and simple. However, the Rs are making hay out of what I am sure is a poll-tested idea about "income verification" prior to getting subsidies.

    As anyone knows who is self-employed (whether as an independent contractor or an LLC) there's absolutely no friggin' way to provide income verification this month that means anything next month.

    It's all a game. The original Democratic plan's only flaw was that it might give a cash flow loan to a few of individuals who net out at year end on the lucrative end of the equation. But I don't think that will be peanuts compared to the welfare we're already giving to multi-national corporations.
