Given that more than a 1/3 of the stimulious package was tax cuts can we conclude that tax cuts are now not a stimulious to the economy?
Even if by "tax cuts" you mean cash handouts to consumers who don't even pay taxes, your statement would be a logical fallacy.
You may conclude that this Porkulus was an ill-advised epic failure except to the special interests who profited, but that doesn't tell you anything about well-designed, broad-based tax cuts which nearly all economists would agree are stimulative.
Tax cuts? Do you mean like the tax cut to private jet manufacturers that Obama signed then turned around and demonized?
Maybe you mean the extension to the existing tax rates? I suppose if you think the government allowed private citizens to keep more of its money then you could consider that a tax cut.
