Tax rebates seen as economic stimulus

First off, what fucking fiscal wizard figured this out? Give people some of their tax money back and they'll spend it in a couple days. Duh!

That certainly seems like a band-aid rather than a permanent fix.

Hahaha! They're talking "temporary"? Give US a fucking break. Government doesn't do temporary.
With the economy's prospects growing bleaker seemingly by the day, politicians in both parties have rallied around the three Ts, the mantra that any stimulus package needs to be timely, targeted and temporary [emphasis mine].

It is a bandaid. I also suspect it's cover for giving out another big tax-break to the rich. Listen to Dubya emphasize how the break should be given, not to working Americans, but to "those who pay taxes". And who always complaining about the "unfair" amount of taxes they must pay and how it "hurts" the economy?

Hey! You don't think the wealthy pay more taxes than you?

The rich are immune to taxes. Trickle down works. Hahaha.
