John Kerry speaking on the Senate floor against additional tax cuts in the stimulus bill, quoted in the Weekly Standard blog:
I've supported many tax cuts over the years, and there are tax cuts in this proposal. But a tax cut is non-targeted.

If you put a tax cut into the hands of a business or family, there's no guarantee that they're going to invest that or invest it in America.

They're free to go invest anywhere that they want if they choose to invest.
As Kim at Wizbang said:
This is a socialist's worst fear. Allowing the American people the freedom to invest their money the way they want without any government intervention means the elitists who think they know better but don't can't dictate where the money is spent. To the socialist's mind, all money -- all activity if you really want to be honest - is to be spent for the good of the collective and not for the good of the individual who earned that money.
