  • Last I read - no

    My understanding was the problem with the first stimulus package was.. it didn't stimulate the economy.  People didn't go out and blow it shopping (which would boost the economy) they did crazy things like pay their backed up mortgage.   So they don't believe a second stimulus would do any better.  We might do something stupid like pay our bills.  ;)

  • LOL. I heard IF it happens it willl be combined with our regular tax refund. They haven't voted on it yet. I don't think they should do it BUT if they do I will use it for bills! Not what they want us to do anyway!

  • stimulus checks, oh my, the poor postal carriers. if only i could tell you the horrible stories of our customers literally accosting mailcarriers "not" bringing their stimulus checks on time. i can only imagine how my old co-workers will be confronted for more "checks in the mail" this next time. and to think, people are starting their anxious wait today. sheesh.

  • Gosh, Obama isn't even in office and Americans are already looking for a handout. Didn't take long to indoctrinate y'all to socialism, did it?

  • It's sad to think some people are actually preparing/counting/thinking about stimulus checks. I hope you are asking and not counting on it...
    TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF... Don't wait for the Gov't.

    Plus, last I heard stimulus checks were going to state and cities for civil mgt projects and NOT to citizens...

  • It is one of the options they are tossing around. The others are a principle reduction on certain home loans, increased child tax deduction, extensions on mortgage terms to lower payments, mandatory FHA buyouts. I would prefer to see Obama issue an executive order similar to FDR's that creates wor groups and begin to develop wind, water, nuclear energy and limited drilling offshore.

  • obama said that he would like to see an emergency check hit before the holidays and another after he is in office. Check out sean hannity radio for more info.
    We should all just realign our budgets so we are living within our means. These checks from the gov't are gonna cost us far more in the long run. . .

  • Doesn't matter what Obama wants prior to Jan 20th. and he has officially removed himself from talks. Hannity doesn't seem to be all that reliable on the subject, as in the past.

  • i heard obama was trying to have the stimulus checks stopped after he got in so if it passes he was going to take it away. it might hurt in the long run but frankly i think with obama in it's going to hurt for at least 4 yrs so i would like to get my stimulus payment to help me boost my paid bills cause the worst is yet to come so i would like to get a least something from the government cause i doubt i will ever get anything else from them.
