Pres. Bush was slated to stimulate my checking account today—I’ve been logging in to my bank account all day, over and over, looking for a direct deposit that still hasn’t arrived. But when it does, what will I spend my $600 on? A few options include:
- A pair of Manolos (which I will keep forever and tell my grandchildren Pres. Bush picked out special for me and only me)
- Couple months payment on a new Sony flatscreen
- Plane ticket to Paris – on AirFrance, of course
Hmm, but none of these options stimulate the American economy, do they? What a conundrum! Either way, this absurd plan does nothing to address the reasons why our economy is in peril. So I can get all cheery about an extra $600 in my pocket, but I’ll never be fooled into believing that this plan will promote any long-term boost in the economy. Who could be, after 8 years of Bush presidency?
In any case, how do you plan on spending your tax rebate?
