The latest installment of liberal math?
When the government spends money, it's our, taxpayers, money. This package will cost $10,000.00 + per person.
But wait he "cut our taxes" $13.00 per couple or $6.50 per person per week starting in June.

Obama is going to charge me $10,000.00 so I can have $6.50/week?

Can someone explain to me how this Stimulus helps those of us who are working and paying our taxes? Those of who already own a home, but are struggling to make it? I want to scream.
Why does it seem that OBAMANOMICS is all about people who need unemployment, medicaid, etc?

  • you are going to get a huge tax break... like a few thousand if you are married... idk besides that... it is really to help those in need... if you own a home they are offering really really low refinancing rates for us.... i know how you feel but you have to remember there are so many starving, no heat, no help from the gov... count your blessings and quit being a naysayer... look up the plan if you wanna learn about it..

  • why is this question asked everyday?

  • It doesnt make sense. One major thing missing from the package was there is no stimulus in regards to the military. One would think if he put some money into that then many factories working at half pace would pick up contracts and work at full steam which in turn would put money into the economy bc less people would be unemployed or partially unemployed. The best economists have already said this package will likely fail. In the end itll be our kids and grandkids paying off this debt and asking us how this happened and why they are paying for this?

  • I agree with your frustrations. They take from the rich, rob the middle class and just handfeed the worthless and poor!

  • Yes, and you have to pay it all today. You also owe back the same $10,000 the W gave you today, and the same $10,000 that Clinton gave, and your parents money from GHW, and Regan too.

    Feel better? I know I do.

  • maybe they think if they ask the question enough then we can magically go back in time to when the bill wasn't passed.

  • Did you really say worthless and poor? Wow, can you post regular so I can judge you too?

  • awww, anon you are too cute.
    you clearly cannot make any sort of rational argument so you have to resort to personal attacks. unfortunately i don't receive food stamps so even your petty attempt at a jab missed the mark.
    try again later.

  • Obamanomics. That is funny. Obama never ran a business, a city, or a state. He doesn't know what he is doing. Pelos and Ried are running the Stimulus Show. What did you expect? People voted for Change. And even his voters DO NOT have an answer. lol. Pretty pathetic. Little did the voters know the change many voted for was the "jing a ling a ling" going into the Govt's pocket to fund entitlement, DTV, and pet projects like Bay Area Wildlife.
    Op, The best thing you can do is contrubute to a PAC to get Obama and the Democratic controlled Congress outta there.
