Here's an idea:
Why don't we ask the States and Cities to give a tax rebate to stimulate the economy? We seem to always look to the Federal government for this, but why not those entities closer to home? Most states have an income tax, they for sure have a substantial sales tax, property tax, and if you get to looking at the bills and services coming in to be paid every month at your household, you'll find an array of other fees and taxes added onto your bills.
It's worth some conversation and consideration, don't you think?
