Modest Suggestion for Obama and the Economy on 01/28/2010 00:35:28 MST Print View

Given that common wisdom says that small business drives job creation,
and given that Obama said in his State of the Union address that he agrees,

I propose that there should be a tax credit for purchasing ultra-light gear! Let's help small business!

After all, such gear is mostly made by small business operations.

Well considering that Obama said there would be no capital gains tax on small business I don't think he'll also give us a break for buying the UL gear. :)

Don’t get me wrong, with the amount of gear us UL weenies buy we could single handedly turn this economy around!
