When I read about Bush’s “economic stimulus” plan yesterday, I was all fired up to come home and write a rant about it, but sort of discouraged, because I’d have to dig up a bunch of supporting info that I didn’t readily have at hand. Luckily, Kevin did most of that stuff for me, so you can just read his post, True Colors Shining Through, instead.
One point that I did want to make is how it seems like the Bush administration isn’t even trying to pretend to care about anybody other than their paymasters anymore. I mean, really, a dividend credit!? You couldn’t read an analysis of the “why the bubble burst” stuff without hearing about how corporations don’t pay dividends anymore, preferring instead to plow that money back into the business.
