Charlie is at his desk, filling out a check to pay off his tax debt, while Jed looks over his shoulder. Jed explains that they were hoping to inject some more money into retail and tourism. Charlie: "Why didn't you just wait until people were supposed to have the money?" Jed: "The economy might have improved on its own by then." Charlie: "In which case, the whole thing would have been pointless in the first place." Jed: "Yeah." Charlie: "Economists just make it up as they go along, don't they?" Jed: "Yeah." Jed admits that the plan didn't work so much. Most people, like Charlie, used it to pay down debt. Charlie shows his check to POTUS for approval -- is Jed going to go around making sure everybody pays their taxes properly? -- and stuffs it in an envelope. Jed turns into President Softie and tells Charlie that he was surprised to find out how much money Charlie donates to charity, given his salary, and admits that perhaps the money is better off in Charlie's hands. But, we've established in previous episodes that Democrats aren't so big on that system. Jed tells Charlie that when he gets home he's going to find the DVD player Charlie was planning to buy, along with his "wimp-ass" James Bond film, as well as Yeomen of the Guard. Did he have the Secret Service guys break into Charlie's house? I hope they didn't leave it on his doorstep. Charlie tells him that was an "incredibly nice gesture."
