On Budget & Economy: Alternative stimulus: reduce taxes; $7500 homebuyer credit

On Jan. 23, 2009, in a meeting with the president and his economic advisers, John Boehner and I presented the president with our alternative stimulus bill. What we proposed could not have been more different than the bloated $787 billion monstrosity that was eventually passed by the Democratic Congress. It was a simple, direct way to create jobs and help our economy by focusing on small businesses. Here are the highlights:Not only was our plan fair, understandable, and more direct than the Democratic majority's bill, it delivered twice the bang for half the bucks spent in the Democratic plan. After I handed him the plan, Pres. Obama said, "Eric, there's nothing too crazy in here."
