setting out short and long-term ways to shore up the U.S. economy. Some of the ideas are great, such as getting the deficit under control and infrastructure programs, but at the same time the USCC is asking for incentives to guide these investments, they also want to keep their taxes low. There’s only so much money to go around, even from the U.S. government, and we can’t spend what we don’t have.
