Today the President is expected to announce his economic stimulus plan. That plan could include a federal tax rebate to individuals of $800 and married couples of $1600.
While I am not sure how the government can go handing out such large sums of money while we are conducting a multi-billion dollar war, I am also not sure I want to argue about a $1600 check. I mean, c’mon people, principles only go so far.
It’s like the President knows I have to pay off the expensive camera I just got. He is just tempting me to agree with this new plan. So part of me says, “no thank you Mr. President you should keep that money for the massive federal deficit.” The other, more materialistic part says, “We could really use that money…bring. it. on.” You could say I am, um, warming up to this idea.
However, I fully expect Congress to call “Shenanigan’s!” on the Prez… after I got my hopes up and everything.
Don’t you tease me Mr. President! Don’t you do it!
