Tax evasion as stimulus

The Spokesman-Review

Our elected representatives and senators in Washington, D.C., are currently wasting our time and money debating a huge pork-filled “stimulus” bill that will put our children and grandchildren in debt forever.

With tongue planted firmly in cheek, there is a very simple solution to this problem, one that has already been approved by the current administration and the Democrats in Congress. It would also be readily approved by the Republicans, as it would give them the tax cuts they desire.

Titled the Geithner/Daschle Tax Exemption Stimulus Bill, you simply don’t pay any taxes until you are nominated for a Cabinet position. Think of the extra money that would be put into the pockets of all consumers. This would be a win/win situation for everyone.
