ABSTRACT
The article deals with Senator John Ensign of Nevada's call for tax breaks for companies trying to pay debts. According to Ensign, the stimulus bill proposed by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama will be more expensive compared to its current estimated price. Ensign recommends introducing a tax holiday that would allow for a 12-month window in which firms could bring their overseas investments back to the country.
