If income taxes are eliminated, it won't be the government spending the money now will it?
Are you now asking me if I think the economy would recover faster if the people were spending the money rather than the gov't? Yes, I think it would. People will spend their money much wiser, simply because they earned it, than the gov't ever could. I imagine, if that were to happen, that a lot of programs cuts would be in order. After all, who's going to lend to someone with no source of income?
