guess where it is going next month?
I was thinking the same thing.
But hopefully it will be subsidized or some sort of deal so we have some left over.
Care to explain what an economic stimulus cheque is?
Might be cause im from the UK
Because the economy is in a recession (or nearing a recession), the govt thought it'd be a great idea to borrow money from other countries to give each person who has a job in America (and earns like under $150,000 [not sure what the max was]) a couple hundred dollars to go out and buy stuff to 'stimulate' the economy.
That's not the best explanation but it'll do, I think.
^^^ Ya, but I'm not sure we borrowed the money from other countries though.
Hmm strange, I wish they gave me free money! So taxes don't go up because of it?
They are just hoping everyone will run out and spend away to pull us out of a recession. I doubt this plan will work though although I am of course running out to spend mine on guess what, 3g iPhone !
Dang, I guess I should have saved mine to buy my new iPhone 2....NOT!!!
Instead it went for:
Operating System (Office software not included): Genuine Windows® XP Media Center Edition 2005
Notebook Tuners and Remotes: With Media Center Remote Control
Video/Graphics Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® Series - 512MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8700M GT - Enables DirectX® 10 Graphics!

Yeah, basically if you earned over a small amount (like $3000) and under something like $80,000, you got $600 tax-free from the government (earn less than $3000 and you get less), plus $300 per kid if you have em. But since pretty much every tax payer in the US is getting this government money, it means we're just increasing our national debt by a hell of a lot to do this. Hope it works!
The timing, getting the money a month before the 3G iPhone, is very suspicious...maybe Apple arranged this with the government?
Surely giving out free money would just increase inflation? Wouldn't it make more sense to reduce VAT of tax?
You seem to be under the hilarious impression that this is being done for logical reasons and not to simply curtail favor with the votors.
Surely you have politions where you live? I'm certain they are similar to ours, just transfer whatever impressions you have of your own polititions to U.S. politions and I'm sure you'll get the idea.
your gas tank? lol
Thats where most of mine went. CT's gas prices are insane!
They should send out another round of checks cuz they missed the boat w/ this idea.
You better believe they will. Even more so if Obama gets elected ... he wants to turn the US into a socialist country like France.
You 2 either have no understanding of U.S. politics or no understanding of French politics.
Or possibly both. That would explain it, too.
did you mean politicians
My fingers aren't cooperating today, and I'm not using my own keyboard today either. A deadly combination.
Look at Obama's previous voting record ... it has been historically far far left and in line with socialism. There are far too many sites out there proving it then what I could do with a post.
In France people would rather live on welfare / other government programs then work. According to some family friends in France it has gotten so bad recently that they can not find anyone to build them a new house at ANY price.
Tell me it's not scary when you have a large population unwilling to work?
I can tell you mine will be the first payment on that 911 I have been searching for .
Hmmm! I wonder if it's anyway near the UK prices... equates to $9.75 for a US gallon!!
It's quite a hot topic at the moment, the price has gone up 40% in the last 12 months!!
The country isn't very amused!
Regular unlead in DC is around $4.00~$4.20
Diesel is almost $5.00
Got it last month, saving it to spite monkey prez. =)
Probably going into the IRA.
And you are not using a Mac, nor Safari on Windows, both have spell checks. Gotta say that's multi fail. =p
There is a better way to explain this check from the govt, I like to think of it more as a refund for all the taxes we are forced to pay everyday from income,sales,state,fed,county,city,fishing,hunting and on and on and on. Air is about the only thing not taxed.
This is simply your $$$ in the first place and they are letting you have a lil fraction back.
Now whats the criteria for the order of these refunds? name? SS#?
Last 2 digits of ss#:
So by giving a cash payout equalling nearly 100 billion dollars to working americans, half of which will just sling it into a bank account for a rainy day, how is that supposed to stimulate the economy.
