I was watching The Daily Show and saw this interview with Lawrence Lindsey . He has the answer to our dilemma, but it will never happen because our politicians have sold out to the corporate machine.
FICA takes more out of our economy than the bailout puts back in. If the government would pay only this one tax it would cost half of what the bailout will cost and put the money immediately where the politicians say they want the bailout money to go. It would directly help people and business and pour billions into the economy right now. It would save jobs and help create jobs now. The bailout will take years before (if ever) we see the trickle down money. What we need is Lawrence Lindsey's trickle plan.
