Maybe someone has posted this before, if so, I'm sorry for bringing this up again.
We're hearing about the housing market turning around and the credit is being given to the $8,000 tax credit for first time home buyers (tax incentive).
We're hearing about the auto industry having their best month in a couple of years and the credit is being given to the "cash for clunkers" program (incentive).
Our economy has yet to turn around (although listening to the state controlled media, you'd think we were fine) but what is the governments solution...tax increases. What? From the previous two examples that the current government has put forward, aren't tax incentives/tax cuts the way to go?
If you want people to being spending and businesses to start to hire again, why not give them incentive to do so? It's amazing to me, the administration plays up how much they've helped the housing and auto industry, but they can't get it through their think liberal skulls that if they applied that theory to the rest of the market, everything would turn around...it's worked in the past!
Leftofcenter...you say there isn't enough opposition on this blog (I agree, I'd love to have more) but here is your chance. Tell me how I'm wrong.
