Letter to the Editor
If I were in Congress I would do something very different to stimulate the economy. The first thing I’d do it end the war in Iraq. Then I’d change the law that prohibits the government from shopping around to get the best prices from the drug companies. Next I’d implement universal health care so the the costs of insurance doesn’t go way up every year. Then we need to get off of oil even if we have to convert to diesel from coal until we can develop electric car technology. We can take away corporate subsidies for oil companies using the money to develop green technologies. Eliminate tax breaks for the rich so that they have to pay the same tax rates as the middle class. If we do all that then we will go back to the problem being what are we going to do about the surplus rather than what we are going to do about the deficit.
