Dear Mr. Obama,
Dear Mr. Obama
Tomorrow I will be sending $3000 to the IRS.
Too bad, if I had that money I can think of a lot
of things to do with it.
The guy down the street is a carpenter.
He's been looking for work for a long time.
I was thinking of re-finishing our Kitchen floor.
Looks like I won't be doing that this year.
I also know a guy who does vinyl siding.
I would love to get my house sided,
and $3000 would certainly be a large part of the
cost. But I guess I won't be doing that this year.
I know an electrician who is out of work. I'm
sure he could help me upgrade our electrical
service. Too bad, I won't be doing that this year.
Perhaps I could put the money towards a new car.
I know someone at a dealership that is really in need
of the business.
Oh well, looks like I can't do that this year either.
Instead, I am handing it over to the government so you
can "stimulate" the economy.
Am I missing something here ?
