If they want to stimulate our spending, maybe they should stop taking so damn much from us in the first place. Evil or Very Mad

^^When I was a kid, I would sometimes hide money from myself. When I found it months later, I'd feel rich and go out and blow it.

Same principle.

Since I don't spend my chickens before they hatch I am leaning to using mine to hire a maid service to come clean my house twice a month. So that's 4 months of a clean house! Yoohoo! However, I live in fear that they will want it back and tell us it was just a joke. Laughing

I'll be saving mine. I hope this isn't too political ... but I can't understand how printing more money is going to solve a problem created by the fact that our money isn't worth the paper it's printed on Embarassed

Well, the plan is to give us the money so we'll spend it, and give it to someone else. Somehow this is good for us to do. I guess I would be un-American if I didn't spend it. Confused

This is one of those stupid government programs that does nothing to actually address the problem at hand.

I voted save although I will see nothing becuase my wife, who is self employed and therefore would benefit from some tax breaks, makes us not eligible.

EDIT: Sorry if this leans to much to the political side of things. Tried to be general.

With a lot of the masses planning to run out and buy electronic crap, the economy that will be stimulated the most is china.


Its just more distracting nonsense from our govt.....


So? When will we see the first reports of fraudulent tax returns to cash in?

A somewhat related comment by the mythological Sir Winston Churchill:

Quote:
We contend that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.


A perfect summation of these programs constantly set before us.
