So Give Me My Money Already

I believe that once we set priorities and fund them, we ought to remember who pays the bills in the first place. This surplus is not the government's money. We're going to spend money as if it's the government's money -- it's the people's money. And I believe we ought to listen to the people of America and share that money with the people who pay the bills.
George W. Bush in 2001, before he sent me a check for $300.

Well, it's about that time again.

Of course, I opposed the rebates and tax cuts back then. But I had a conversation with my accountant this morning about sole proprietership and the self-employment tax, and every little bit helps.
