Yeah! I'm a paranoid!

I originally had it as "depressed", but I thought "paranoid" would be funnier.

I think A2 would probably be better than what we now have....

From Ace:
As I've pitched before. I don't know if Mankiw's idea is this dramatic, but Flip Pidot ran the numbers and for the $1.2 trillion the stimulus was (it's growing), we could cancel all employer-paid payroll taxes for 2 1/2 years, or cancel both employer and employee paid taxes for 1 and 1/4 years.

Using standard economic modeling, such cuts should result in a gain of 2.8 million jobs, Flip found.

15 *months* of "no income taxes". Think that might stimulate the economy better than a porkfest most of which doesn't even apply until 2011?
