The $787 billion includes tax cuts for new motorcycle purchases. Single and earn less than $125,000 a year? Married and earn less than $250,000? Planning to purchase a motorcycle that costs less than $49,500? Yes? Then congratulations, you’ll be able to deduct the price of its
purchase sales tax from your 2009 tax return.
No, that doesn’t do much if you can’t currently afford a new
motorcycle, nor will it help the legions of citizens who are currently
jobless. We don’t even expect it to help dealers, who are currently
reeling after CPSIA banned children’s motorcycles. But, it could be
just enough to convince people already considering a purchase to go
ahead with it. That’s a good thing, right?
Us? We’re looking forward to an Iceland-like complete economic collapse. We didn’t stock up on these guns for nuthin’.
