The author reflects the tax holiday model of U.S. Representative Louie Gohmert, which is designed to help the U.S. economy. He says that compared with the Nancy Pelosi-Barack Obama model, the plan of Gohmert will put the money back into the pockets of the American people, who will be given more control over the American economy. He adds that Gohmert plan is an economic growth plan that aims to get the country growing again and that this will produce more freedom, much less corruption and return the power and control back to the American worker.
