This is not very honest. One third of the stimulus was tax breaks. Republicans always insist that tax breaks are not spending, but here we are being told we will be paying back our tax breaks? Second, this assumes only personal income tax is used to pay the debt. Third, I am fine with it because it kept essential services, created a floor for families who were falling into poverty and helped the economy to turn around. Our future ability to pay this debt will be completely determined by the strenght of the recovery and future economic growth.
