Everyone agrees we have to get this ecomony moving again. Everyone has their idea on how to accomplish this. Republicans think more tax cuts (especially for the rich) will do the trick. Democrats think they can spend their way out of rough times. I kind of lean toward the latter, but the problem with most spending stimulus plans is people don't spend. We give tax rebates to people for buying new homes, appliances, cars and who knows what. The problem, most people just put the money in the bank instead of spending it.
When I am King, all stimulus rebates from the federal government will be in the form of prepaid Vista cards. You can use them just like cash and buy almost anything. Here's the kicker. If you don't spend the prepaid amount in one year, you lose it.
I am pretty sure most people will spend the money. More money spent, more products need to be made, more jobs are created. Let's get things moving again.
