Is Obama doing some kind of stimulus payment like Bush did?
Go ahead, bash me for not paying attention. Just please answer the question too!

Girl, you owe it to yourself to pay attention. Your hard-earned tax dollars are involved here. The money doesn't just fall out of the sky. It's striped from the working American and given out...and must be paid back :-( You need to be aware of what the government is doing with your hard earned cash. To answer your question. Yes. Is it like Bush's plan? I have no clue. Despite staying up on current evens and politics, I still had no clue what the heck Bush's plans were about. http://www.newsweek.com/id/182762

If Republicans get their way it will be only about tax cuts and job creation. All the pork that Democrats have put in will be removed. We will see. Democrats may have enough votes to get this through. If they do and it fails we can blame Democrats solely for this disaster. The last bail out was mostly passed my Democrats in the Senate with some Republicans and signed by Bush. So there was shared blame there. Hopefully, what the Republicans propose will be what is passed. A 5 percent across the board tax cut for those who actually pay in taxes will help it has worked before and will work again.

You will not receive a check. The stimulus will not create jobs. This stimulus package is the biggest rip off in American history and will send our economy on a spiral to a HUGE recession that our children's children will still be paying for. To put it into perspective, there is SO much pork spending that if you took that money and allocate it to the unemployed, each unemployed American citizen would get $75,000.00. Now NObama wants to stimulate the economy, do just that, give it to the unemployed instead of wasteful pork spending.
