Stimulating the Economy

When I first heard of the "economic stimulus" checks being administered to address our recessive state, I remember thinking that the idea was completely meritless.

But there is one upside....

According to the AP:

Deadbeat dads and moms around the country are discovering that their
economic stimulus checks from Washington — intended to encourage the purchase of TVs, cars and other goods — are being intercepted and funneled toward the support of their children.

Treasury Department figures obtained by The Associated Press show that more than 1.4 million of the checks have been seized since the payments began last spring, and a total of $831 million has been collected by child support agencies nationwide.

Can we also do that with tax returns?
