Most of those aren't even possible. They can't just give the stimulus money back to the taxpayers.

To get folks back to work, I'd like to see it used for basic infrastructure projects (sidewalks etc.) I'd also like to see a portion of it packaged as grants to local businesses for capital improvements.
