graffiti, etc. No one would prefer these jobs. Pay would be tax free: no payroll deductions of
any kind, including State or Local taxes. The workers would get $400 for 40 hours of work.
If self-funding enterprises were seperated and taxes used only for Defense, restricted Welfare,
and a jobs program, there would be ample tax revenues and no deficit.
The Democrats would oppose this. Let them. It makes sense. The American people
would support it.
