A stimulus package that contains tax cuts for all Americans and investment incentives for small businesses should go a long way in reducing any long-term effects of an economic slow down. Families need to pay their bills now and businesses need an alternative to letting workers go, so it is imperative we get a stimulus into the hands of people who will use it quickly. We have an opportunity to do that through tax deductions, credits and rebates, but it must be large, broad-based and immediate.
