A $1,600 Election-Year Gimmick

I’m with my friend Rob Bluey of the Heritage Foundation on this one: Don’t send our family a $1,600 handout under the guise of “stimulating” the economy.

This blog is all about holding government officials accountable for the tax-and-spend decisions they make to the detriment of the economy — and specifically to the pocketbook of one American family. But the suggestion that sending taxpayers like us a one-time check will have a substantial impact on the economy is nothing more than a gimmick designed to help politicians get re-elected this year.
