^that's what I'm sayin . . . put that shyt towards the deficit . . . wtf are we paying taxes and the 'war on drugs' for
man . . . we're just getting ripped off . . .
Wow Bush and his administration will go down in money spending history when they leave, and not the good history either....the last administration leaves with a surplus, Bush's administration will leave with a deficit twice that....BRILLANT.
lowering a yaris? aren't those things like an inch off the ground to begin with?
I'll never see this money, so I don't really care.
I'd must reather the Government start a plan to help out the people working, paying their taxes, but can't afford homes, yet don't have children.
I don't have kids, I work my ass off all year for barely 28 grand a year, I pay my taxes, and I obey the law, and I'm black, so I'm not a statistic at the moment.
Can I please get at least 300 bucks when I file, instead of paying 1500 bucks back every god damn year?!
It just goes to show how bad the economy in America is...
i don't care what happens in the long run... i want $800, now.
While I would usually agree with you Matt, it seems that BOTH sides of the aisle want to get this done.
Of course the rifts are where the money goes in full. Bush wants a slice for business which is sensible and wants to keep it out of the hands of those who don't pay taxes.
Congress seems to want to feed more of it into those already in a slump i.e. foodstamp, unemployment, ect. Which I think is also admirable.
But overrall, there doesn't seem to be a major tone of dissent in the argument, just a few squabbles on the direction. What they do ALL agree on is getting it out there and quick.
Fuack you. Pay me.
Where was this advice when Monica needed it?
I found this. It shows that the Rich are actually paying more and more percentage of taxes every year.
its just something to think about.
Alright, well according to Nancy Pelosi, Reid, and Bush, they plan to have this all done and hammered out in 3 weeks. Which as they've said repeatedly, is pretty much 10x faster than most legislation. Also unusual is the overral feeling of cooperation between the White House and Congress with only a few minor squabbles as to the direction some of the funds are headed.
Of course the Democratic Congress wants a slice to go to those on unemployment and foodstamps, and allow people who didn't pay Federal taxes to still get the $800 because of the Social Security tax that everyone pays out of their wages.
The White House wants to give the money only to those who paid Federal taxes and $50 billion to go to small business.
Even with all this, the tenative deadline is 3 weeks and it'll take around 2-3 months for it to actually hit taxpayers.
Heh, I'm all for stimulating our economoy.
YAY! 800 dollars!
Because single people are not adults and can't be trusted with that much money.
so, one day im gonna wake up and theres gonna be an $800 check in my mailbox?
This won't do a damn thing to fix the economy, sorry.
