A real Stimulus plan

I like the idea that when we the people act through our government we try to keep it simple and actually achieve what we intend.

Guarantee Investments

To that end, the government should simply guarantee investments for the next 2 years up to a certain amount. So if someone buys a stock, buys a house for investment, starts a business, or or otherwise take a business risk they can deduct 100% of their losses on their taxes. They get to keep all of the profit tax free.

Help the states

So states won't have to raise taxes or cut vital services.

Forecclosure moritorium

For any homeowner who can make a reasonable payment on their property

tax cuts/tax rebates

Let everyone keep more of their own money through a payroll tax credit that increases the take home pay. Put money back in people's pockets through a rebate so as the investment aspect kicks in, there is extra money in the economy.
