Default Wtf???

Individuals who pay income taxes would get up to $600, working couples $1,200 and those with children an additional $300 per child under the agreement. Workers who make at least $3,000 but don't pay taxes would get $300 rebates.
Why are they handing out tax money to people that dont pay taxes?

Because Bush doesn't want to be remembered as the president who had a recession at both the opening and closing of his administration.

If our leaders want to bolster our economy they can end our little nation building exercise in Iraq that is running us $275,000,000 *PER DAY* ..

Change for the better or worse? The current crop of front-runners is comprised of pro war Democrats and pro war Republicans. Not a fiscal conservative to be found..

Sorry if it came across as hostile. Not my intent. Well not towards anyone here anyways.


How about people that dont pay taxes get $50 and people that pay taxes get the rest? I'm so tired of busting my ass for lazy MFers that dont feel like working because the government is willing to hand out my money to them.

yeah get rid of nafta, and tighten the border's and maybe there would be a decent amount of job out there.. As for the tax refund thing, I agree you need to hold your own to get it back. Hell I only worked 4 months last year before i was let go for being injured and i still made almost 15,000 so I hope i can get the refund it will help. If they are saying you have to make $3,000 for the year is a crock of shit
