The Onion on Fiscal Stimulus
January 29, 2008
In this week’s edition of The Onion, their weekly “interview” of guests on the street asks the question “Congress agreed on an economic stimulus package that would give individual taxpayers a rebate of up to $600. What do you think?”
Our favorite response was from Neville Head, who is a dog trainer:
“I hope buying $600 worth of waffles helps the economy, because that’s what I’m going to do.”
(Just hope Neville isn’t moving to New Mexico because he may encounter a fat tax in the future if he does.)
