Stimulating Waitresses With Obama's Package
If Obama's going to ask for everyone's advice on how to stimulate the economy, and if he's going to use tax cuts for a big chunk of the stimulus, why not lock up the waiter/waitress vote by making tips non-taxable in 2009? If the way to generate economic stimulus is to put more money in the hands of people who aren't making a lot, waiters and waitresses are good people to give our money to.
