I was thinking about this last night: Are those idiots going to tax this as well? You know, like they tax my state tax refund?

your state tax refund is taxed because when you itemized the original (too high) amount is was removed form your taxable income amount, sorry, no double dipping

I don't necessarily think that the tax rebate will help much. But there is a place for some government action here. Spending to stave off a deep recession will leave the deficit in better shape in the long run.

Oh, don't worry. We've got a root canal to pay for.

Is that the kind of spending this brilliant plan is supposed to start?
