Thank God. We may need old infrastucture refurbished, but new high speed rail can wait. You have your open door for the future when funds may become available. Now let those who create jobs hold more of their cash to do that. Let those who invest keep more investment capital. Encourage investment with tax breaks on the money they will make. Doing that is still cheaper than bank bailouts and job stimulus, because it put the money through the whole system creating taxes on all levels, without government overhead.
