  •  What SHOULD be stripped out (18+ / 0-)

    is tax cuts. ALL tax cuts. Mine included. I would much rather feel my job is secure and my friends' and families' jobs are secure than pocket the paltry tax cut someone in my income bracket (way shy of $40,000 a year) is going to get. I'm more likely to benefit in the end from a growing economy than putting a few hundred more dollars in my pocket. Besides, it won't stay in my pocket. With the state and county and my city all struggling, I know that those taxes will increase just to keep schools open and police on the streets. My entire "stimulus' check went to pay other taxes. It's beyond belief to me that some Republicans are pushing for a bill that's 100% tax cuts! — that would do NOTHING to create new jobs. and if Obama said "OK" tomorrow, they'd probably vote against it anyway because the tax cuts weren't big eonugh. These people are literally driving this country off a cliff.
