How can it "not be a plan that can be analyzed"......yet you say that it has been analyzed????

You really are not a careful reader, are you? I specifically described that there was no plan to analyze *fully* and so one was forced to analyze the impact of the few specific pieces and then examine the impact of how one might pay for that impact. The point is, nothing that has been discussed is enough. Since it isn't enough, that implies either worsening the deficit on some vague promise that the stimulus provided will offset the cost ... a popular theory which unfortunately hasn't proved to work reliably ... or someone's taxes have to go up. Moreover, even that analysis is probably not feasible since it involves things like eliminating the deduction for charitable contributions. Is that politically feasible?
