Backdooring a Second Stimulus
Since apparently we can't get a sensible second stimulus through the economic-illiterates now denominated deficit-hawks (who are essentially arguing that we must burn this civilization to the ground to "save" it, but never mind) I am assuming we are going instead to sunset the ruinous Bush tax cuts for the wealthy and then spend the added revenues in ways that take advantage of shovel-ready infrastructure needs and the greater propensity of everyday as against rich people to spend pocket-money and hence get a back-door second stimulus that way. It's ridiculous that it's come to that, but here we are.
