Rebel (With A Clue) Revisited

No, not that Michelle, you silly boy, a different one!

Regular visitors to this blog (and you both know who you are) may remember Michelle Muccio of the Acton Institute, the young "rebel economist." We saw her for ourselves earlier this month in a piece entitled "The Other Stimulus." It seems she has been turning a number of heads lately with... uh, her proposal.

Politicians are going to spend $800 billion dollars which they claim will stimulate the economy. For the same amount of money we could eliminate the payroll tax for the rest of the year, giving the average worker thousands of dollars back in their pocket...

This clip is from her interview with CBS News' Bob Schieffer. Oh sure, the mainstream media is taking a moment out from the Obama Love Fest to hear an alternative, just because she's young and pretty and all that.

Whatever works.
