12. Sorry, I don't see a $2.5 Trillion stimulus in 8 years by "giving" folks $1.8 Trillion annually,

financed by increasing the National Debt.

Now, if you slashed military, and raised taxes on upper 50% or so, that might break us even -- every think considered -- for a year or two. But, then, both of those things would be a deterrent to stimulus (although it's time we do something drastic with military spending, it is a big part of our economy). I think Kenyes would laugh at the OP. I'm glad it was offered though, because we need to start thinking about how this is going to work down the road and stop trying to prop up coal mining, etc.

I do think we are going to have to do something as automation, etc., takes over. But the OP is more than a pipe-dream, more like mainlining Fentanyl.
