    The real smoke and mirrors comes from the cuts the Democrats made to the stimulus bill. Obama wanted to give $500 (single) $1000 (family) and since the bill looked so bloated at $919B, they reduced the size to about $780B but they left all the fat on the bone for Americans to swallow and cut all the real stimulus meat out that actually would have benefited taxpayers in the form of higher stimulus checks, home and auto rebates, tax deductions, etc!!!

    So now the democrats are saying hey America, we cut the size down so lets sign it before anyone has a chance to read it!!! Now special interest groups, pet projects, and big fat pork will sail through and oh by the way, Americans started complaining about the size so we'll cut your money first!!!

    I love a good tard smackdown.

    Roughly $282 billion of the stimulus package, or about 35 percent, is made up of tax cuts for individuals and businesses, including tax breaks for buyers of homes and cars.

    The centerpiece is President Obama’s “Making Work Pay” income tax credit of up to $400 for individuals and $800 for couples in 2009 and 2010. The money will mostly be distributed through reduced paycheck tax withholdings, adding $8 or so a week that officials hope will be spent not saved. Individuals earning up to $75,000 and couples up to $150,000 will qualify for a full credit.

    The bill also spares millions of middle-income Americans from the alternative minimum tax in 2009, raising the exemption to $46,700 for individuals and $70,950 for couples.

    First-time homebuyers will be able to claim a tax credit of up to $8,000, for purchases made by Dec. 1, 2009.

    Individuals earning up to $125,000 and couples up to $250,000 will be able to deduct the sales tax paid on a new car costing up to $49,500. And the bill creates a new $2,500 higher education tax credit, partly refundable for tax-filers who do not pay that much in taxes.

    You know I've been watching with much amusement how the same die-hard Republicans in here that preach all the tough love, pull yourself up by your bootstraps, you don't deserve chit from the Government, go work for it crowd, have been salivating over the thought of getting the $15 tax money and other goodies.

    It seems when the timing is right for them it's OK to bankrupt the country, and when not, you're a lazy piece of chit welfare queen.

    Seriously, how is this going to help anybody?

    I am not going to change my spending habits.

    I was against the $300 rebate checks a few years ago, I was against the $600 stimulus check last year. Congress and the Senate need to learn to live within a budget and realize that eventually somebody has to pay the bill.

    I believe in government spending when
    1) the government actually gets something for it such as a road, bridge or weapon system

    2) when it is actually going to do something (such as low interest student loans) and is not some feel good bull####

    3) it must be within the powers of the federal government, stuff such as providing condoms or abstinence education is a total waste of money and the federal government was never granted the power to do this

    Boyidiot doesn't copy and paste these parts of his own source!!!

    If nothing else, the plan is a striking return of big government. It also symbolizes continuing partisanship, despite Mr. Obama’s promise of new cooperation. No House Republican voted for the measure, and the three in the Senate who did are viewed as renegades by their party’s leadership.

    Whatever the result, future generations will get the bill.
