‘historic tax relief for average americans’

The Atlantic (Derek Thompson): The White House and Republicans have reached an agreement on the Bush tax cuts, and it’s a whopper. Republicans get their tax cuts. Democrats get their second stimulus…

Let’s think about what this means from both a short-term stimulus perspective and a long-term deficit perspective. In the near future, this means significant help for American families and businesses that seemed out of reach just a few days ago. Unemployment benefits are considered the most effective form of stimulus. The payroll tax holiday will double the relief from the Making Work Pay tax credit, giving average worker thousands — yes, thousands — of dollars in additional after-tax income. The extensions to the refundable portions of the Child Tax Credit and EITC will also target low income families hit hardest in the downturn.

In short, a $60 billion tax cut for the richest will be unsavory to some people, but it’s become a vehicle for historic tax relief for average Americans. Of the six stimulus ideas analyzed by the CBO in the summer, this deal has four, including the two most stimulative: jobless benefits and a payroll tax cut, both of which target the middle- and low-income Americans.

…..Today, Americans at every income level got a major stimulus. But tomorrow’s deficit debate just got louder and more urgent.
