It isn't like I'm going to send the check back, but neither do I think it's going to stimulate a stagnating economy -- some will use it to repay debts already incurred, others will save it. Few will spend it in ways that will stave off a recession.
But one tax break that could seriously affect spending: Remove or waive an upper income limit for student loan interest tax deduction. People who have deferred employment for full-time graduate and professional education have likely also deferred significant spending . . .
