the recession is deemed over to fuel positive light towards
looking for election/reelection in november. obama will restructure the tax cuts set to expire and call them something along the lines of recession rebates and take all the credit to make them look as though they are doing something productive.
a system as is mentioned in that article would only serve to inflate corruption and new ways to cheat the system. The major downfall to something like that (and the US does this as well) is that they believe it is more productive to continue a clamp down and take from those who are honest and following the law. instead of taxing those already over taxed and carrying their own weight they should be cracking down on those abusing the guberment handouts.
