Much, much hatred for the tax code

So because I worked for three months of 2007 as a self-employed person, despite the fact that when I became employed I deliberately set up withholding to keep out EXTRA to cover the fact that I did not pay taxes on the self-employment income, I am now having to use the jaws of life on my face so that I can pay through the nose at the obscene self-employed tax rate.

Of course, if I were one of those people whose income is in excess of 200,000 a year without working, I would be receiving a refund, because it would be an 'economic stimulus'.

What would be an economic stimulus for me? NOT having to deplete my savings right now.
