A Novel Idea for Funding the Stimulus Package and Restoring Trust in our Leaders

Pick a team of IRS agents and have them audit every living member of congress, every management executive in the federal government, all living lobbyists, and all Wall Street executives . I bet those agents will find plenty of people that owe...oh, I don't know...maybe six digits worth of dollars in back taxes. If Tom Daschle alone owed over $100,000 in taxes, and there are a minimum of a thousand people who also owe similar amounts, well that could stimulate the economy.

Take all that money and direct it towards incentives for small business owners. Or something useful.

What a funny thought! However, the taxes they didn't pay is probably better left in the private sector, rather than the feds collecting it and redistributing it.
