Creative Finance

Something doesn't add up! Even the poorest math student can figure out that a tax break of $13 a week doesn't balance a payout of $36,000 per person extra in taxes to support the new stimulus bill. Whether you are for the stimulus package or against it, this is obviously "creative finance" that American individuals will have to pay back, if not our generation then that of our children and our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Each generation of Americans has always wanted to make the future brighter for their children ... until now. What ever happened to honesty and integrity? American ingenuity, in the hands of many, has become corporate (or CEO) greed, but socialism is not the answer.
