Either print the money which is taxation taxes directly or borrow it.
So just taken money from people could use it better.
And in terms of tax cuts that's good I wish you get to her -- to -- keep all of the bush tax cuts not just tried to apply politics let them.
You know that if they wanted tax you bats is so -- you know we've established that that her first.

-- -- what the president might end up doing is instead of one year put it to say January 2013.
That way if he's reelected he could say bye -- tax cuts I'm in for four years regardless.
And if the Republicans in Iowa to out of his hands anyway so why go for one year where you -- you think you -- -- -- that we can leave them in place.
I think even though it goes against everything I mean in his body he might do it just to win -- I'm convinced Steve Forbes is something in the course of one point Kate went in there -- there again and -- nothing about that nothing weird behavior.
