Excerpt from the article:


But when he received his tax refund this spring, Sweeney, 63, decided it was time to change things up. Instead of putting the $674 into his savings account, he used most of it for his first-ever trip to see a Major League Baseball game.


“What monies I did get back from the government I figured it would be nice to put back into the economy somehow,” the Westport, N.Y., resident said. “I just feel as though if everybody started just putting back a little bit into the economy, the country might pull out of this a little quicker.”


That's the idea, Mr. Sweeney.

"Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society."
