This is what Yahoo posted just a while ago with the break down of benefits: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090214/ap_on_go_co/stimulus_stakes_who_gets_what
Don't misinterpret any of this as being cash in the hand, except at tax filing time. No one is getting a check in the mail. LOL I don't know how many times i've answered that question. :)
Frankly, the tax benefits have gone up, but many of them are simply the same old carry overs from the last year. The refundable credits are what kicks my butt and gripes me to no end. Most situations refundable credits give money to those that didn't have a tax liablity to begin with. grrrrr..

wow. i will be honest, this is the first i have really read on the breakdown. but, some questions:
And it adds $25 billion extra to No Child Left Behind and special education programs, which help pay teacher salaries, among other things. i was under the impression that obama and other demos thought the no child left behind act was what is causing the school system to fail. but now there givng extra funding for it? People who get food stamps â€” 30 million and growing â€” will get more.
