The New Stimulus will give you a $600 Tax Credit/year. What will you do with your money?

Michelle Obama said of Bush's Tax Cut:
You’re getting $600 - what can you do with that?” Mrs. Obama said in Pontiac, Michigan during the 2008 campaign. “Not to be ungrateful or anything, but maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn’t pay down every bill every month. The short-term quick fix kinda stuff sounds good, and it may even feel good that first month when you get that check, and then you go out and you buy a pair of earrings.”

So. What makes the plan Obama is selling better than Bush's in helping the American People?

So, does Michelle think $600.00 is worth MORE now that her husband is President?

  • LOL! Y'know....thats why Michelle Obama needs to keep her big mouth shut! Her husband is out there trying to sell an 800 billion dollar stimulus bill to a very nervous public, and she's bashing Bush's stimulus saying it doesn't work. Obama should send her on some humanitarian stuff overseas... because having her speak for him must be like running with an anchor chained to his waist!

  • Read this: Wallet

    It breaks down how it effects your wallet.  It seems that it is $800 instead of $600 (big whoop, I know) but that there are other portions that help depending who you are, too.

  • depending who you are, too

    sure. if you are below middle class you will get a little love from Poppa Obama. Middle Class, yet again Plz line up and bend over. It is up to you to carry the weight of the nation and fund The Entitlement States of America! Thank you Obama for sticking it to the Middle Class

  • An extra 60 a month is not going to stimulate the economy and get us on the right track. We need extensive tax cuts right now. Let people keep more of their money each pay period. At first they will save or pay off debt. In a year they will start spending again. With the current plan no spending or job creations will happen for 2-3 years. Democrats obviously have never read about Japan.
