We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle. -- Winston Churchill

Dave Camp and the Economic Stimulus Plan

Posted by Keith Capp - January 26, 2009

There is something very telling about the current stimulus plan that was exposed by Ranking Member Dave Camp (MI-4) in last weekís US House Ways and Means Committee hearing. Rep. Camp pointed out that with a cost of almost $1 trillion dollars the Joint Taxation Committee staff did not have an estimate if a single job could be created by the stimulus. Enjoy the clip!

Maybe Congress should take some advice from this Saturday Night Live sketch from 2006. The best way to get out of debt? Donít buy stuff you canít afford!
