Super Savers

Democrats on the Super Committee want to use savings from the Iraq War to fund new stimulus.  This idea came from this Mark Steyn column.

Pass it Now, Right Away, Don’t Delay

President Obama’s jobs program calls for another $45o billion of the spending that dare not speak its name. That name would be “stimulus“. He wants it passed immediately – “no games, no politics , no delays”.  And he wants it paid for by ending charitable deductions for the rich, capital gains tax rates for hedge fund tycoons, oil industry deductions, and of course, breaks for jet owners.

Unless Congress gets with his plan, unlikely, he says it’s up to the “super committee” to come up with other offsets. Right away.
