Would someone that knows what they're talking about please tell us if we're really getting another stimulus check?

I'm hearing so many different things and it's so annoying. I am not by any means counting on getting another check...I'm just wondering what's going on?

  • Just to show you the tremendous waste, there is so much money appropriated in this bill you could give every unemployed person in the nation a check for $75,000 for the amount being spent.

    NOW wouldn't that be a great alternative??!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I was reading on the Gawd awful stimulus package today. No, I don't believe there will be ANY more checks.... Not while Obama is in office and probably not for a long time even after he's gone. The stimulus has more spending on stupid crap (stuff that will not create jobs, stuff that will not put money anywhere except in the pockets of some CEOs and government , than it does tax cuts/credits. I'd expect for the giant amounts to eventually trickle down and actually hurt us way more than the tax credits that are being proposed is going to help; especially considering the tax credits are only for two years.

  • The only way that you will receive a stimulus check is if you were qualified to receive one last year but didn't for whatever reason. This stimulus is about tax breaks and job creation.

  • No, there will be no checks to the American People. There will be some tax cuts. Most of the Stimulus package on the table is heading towards the pet projects the Dems couldn't get passed the last 8 years. Some 6 million is to be paid for new cars for government employees, and 150 million dollars is to go for honeybee insurance.

    Precious little can actually linked to job creation and economic growth.

    Little will make it into the economy until the end of Obama's (first) term. The Senate began negotiations today to change some of the terms.

    I hope that answers your question.
