36. Thank you for a comprehensive presentation
No, I cannot point to anything specific mainly because it appears that the plans continue to change as I can see also from the many "may" that you inserted.

Yes, I agree with you that any stimulus has to be structures so that most of it goes back into the economy and paying debt or saving does not do this.

I remember Bush's stimulus checks from the summer of 2001, before 9/11, when he so cavalierly raided the surplus that Clinton left. He came to town to meet with small business owners and at least one couple admitted to the reporter that the tax cut they received was used to purchase additional equipment, not to hire anyone.
