The DeMint Solution
Last Sunday, South Carolina's Republican Seanator Jim DeMint sat across from Massachussets Congressman Barney Frank and and said,
"We can take a trillion dollars out of the economy and we're saying we might create 3 million jobs. If we leave it in the economy the economists at the Heritage Foundation say we create 18 million jobs, this is something we know."
DeMint then sponsored a bill consisting of 100% tax cuts to replace the current stimulus package and 36 Republican Senators voted for it.
I suppose Jim and his fellow Republican Senators will soon propose making Ludwig von Mises the Patron Saint of the Treasury Department
