Stimulus Package a really bad idea
I don't always like to admit it to everyone, but I love doing my taxes. I love doing them so much, that I end up doing everyone else's taxes because for some reason, they don't love it as much as I do. But I was a little surprised when Tony, my fiance, told me that I will probably be getting a bigger refund than I had anticipated. And you know what, I say I don't need that refund because it is just plain ridiculous. As Tony put it in his letter to his congressman,
"The basic idea is to borrow money from China, give it to the people so that they buy stuff imported guess where from? China.
In the end, we are left with more deficit and cheap plastic crap. China has US dollars and treasury bonds.
I know you want to be re-elected but this is really dumb."
Why would we borrow money to be more in debt. How does a 150 billion dollar deficit help us out in any run? The poor already have their earned income credits and lower tax brackets and middle incomers like me do not need the extra money badly enough to destroy our economy. If anyone is reading this blog, please write your congressmen and tell them not to vote for this.
