Why do people think they are getting a Stimulus Check?

No individual is getting a check. There are tax credits, more money to be put into Government Aid Programs, etc...

Doesn't anyone follow what is going on?

  • personally the stimulus check is a dumb idea! give companies tax breaks. help them to employ more people who then in turn can pay taxes and start buying things, hence putting more money into the economy.

  • People think that because they hear the word stimulus and remember from before what that means. Not going to happen. The money would be better served with some tax breaks and infrastructure that will build bridges and roads which in turn create jobs. None of the comdoms and STD's are going to help stimulate the economy.

  • Because Obama made people think that he was going to pay their mortgage and put gas in their cars. People don't understand getting something back in the form of a tax rebate. They understand the green in their hands. Remember, a huge percentage of Americans don't contribute taxes, so they expect the cash in hand.

  • They were easily swayed to get a vote and as the pied pipers' played, they followed... Now they want their check.

  • Government aid programs? Try PORK! There is NOTHING in that package that will stimulate the economy. Plus if it was so Bi-PARTISAN, then there would have been at least one republican voting for it.....the numbers I saw, only the dems voted for it.

  • anon 8:23, you are right. And even 11 Dems didn't vote for it. So you know it's a bunch of hooey.

  • They think that probably simply because of the word 'stimulus' and the checks that were sent out last year.

  • Everyone complained because Bush had 700 plus billion dollar plan and now it's up to 800 and some billion dollar plan and was passed. We're on our way to becomming a third world country slowly but surely !!! I've got an idea on how to cut the budget, they could stop helping foriegn countries rebuild for one and invest those trillions of dollars in our own damn country and help our own people. No other country would help us out so why help them!
