Default What the $789 billion will do for you......

Check out link

http://www.usatoday.com/money/econom...-effects_N.htm

I love what it will do for the average tax payer: The tax credit would increase the average taxpayer's paycheck by about $8 a week,

Boy, that is really going to stimulate the economy!

These people are out of their minds!

If you have a job and work for your money, you won't notice any change.

If you're a slacker sucking on the government teet, you'll get more milk.

That's how I understand it.

I figure I'm blessed b/c I'm employed, get paid, and can help serve others. Sometimes I'll housesit and baby sit kids or train some horses to get extra money, but it could be worse.

Later.

Just think they took out a much needed 8 billion for a monorail system from Disneyland to Las Vegas. Bummer. Also 2 billion to help people buy condoms and quit smoking. Man that would have made a lot of Jobs. And my favorite was the were giving money ot ACORN a group being sued for voter fraud. Wow I am sure glad Obama is in charge and saving jobs with ideas like that.

What mostly irks me is Obama said he would be transparent yet they are hiding all sorts of stuff on this bill. It was not printed till after midnight and not a single member of congress had time to read it before they voted on it.
