We will all soon get $500 to $800 as a cure for the upcoming recession. Is that a joke or what?

It demonstrates that the current politicians due not have a clue as to what working families really need.

There sweatin' and scramblin' in Washington but it is going to be too little too late. Most of these "economic experts" say it is just a minor recession or a slowdown. I just don't see that anywhere. It will be an absolute brutal 2008. They want you to spend this $800 right away... It's going straight to my piggy bank. It is going to pay to be a pessimist right now.

If I got $800, I would spend it right away. There are things I need that I am doing without. Baby needs a new pair of shoes.

It is time we developed a new outlook and new outline for success for this country.

Bring the troops home. Close the boarders to all but a few. Send those back who are illegal. Bring our jobs and manufacturing base back to this country. Cut out 90% of the social programs, teach people how to work and fill employment needs. Change our school systems to where kids learn skills for those that can not go on to college. Reduce all the big shots wages and perks, freeze taxes and balance the budget, stop wasteful spending from the township level all the way to the top. Make those in Washington accountable for there actions and greed. Bring back government to the state level.

Exercise our right to call for a new continental congress and reform a government that will react to the needs of the populace not the needs of corporate greed. Get rid of the conmen and women in Washington.

Bring common sense, morals and independent economic security back to this county.

I heard on the telly that it was only $250. Last time they did this we selfemployed folks didn't get the "credit" until we filled taxes the following April.

Mike, i didnt realize it was a cure;
thought it was something like they do in the private sector, a refund. Or like a private sector coupon to help marketing.

Not intended really as a cure. It is a $150 billion ripoff of one taxpayer paying another. A political sham.
