A tax break SOUNDS like a good idea. Keep in mind that for every dollar YOU get to keep, the people in the expensive seats are getting to keep
millions. The government owes a crap-load of money. There is a huge expense (debt service) we have to pay (or borrow to finance) to service that
debt. Every year they --- Dem or Rep --- have to borrow more money to pay for everything (including servicing our existing debt). When the gov't
gives away 'tax breaks' it has less money to pay its bills. The pay-for-itself argument has proven baseless time and time again. It's just a cheap
sales tactic. So although it feels nice having a little extra money today, your taxes ARE going to go up one way or another to pay for it. Add'l
$.25/gal gas tax and the like...
