Score one for the President. More Clintonesque decisions like these during the next 23 months and he'll win re-election. The economy is going to start coming back now too because of this. After 2 years of stimulus failure, the reality finally sinks in - private citizens are what make the economy grow, not Washington.
Just watch out for inflation - I'm convinced it's the biggest threat we'll face the next 2-5 years The price of a tall boy at Pinkie's is currently $2.50. We will use this to track the inflation rate in the coming months and years. Sorry but you just can't trust CPI (it is, after all, calculated by the government). "PBRI" will be a far more accurate measure.
