I am so freaking irritated with this stimulus package that I am wanting to do nothing with it other than cash the check and stuff the cash in my mattress or something. Literally just keep it out of the economy out of spite.
In reality, it will go into our savings account or retirement fund or to charity or some combination.
I do not need $1500 (married couple + 1 son). I just don't. My husband and I make good money and pay our taxes and mortgage and have no consumer debt. I would rather see that money go to buying more education, more food stamps, more unemployment benefits, more incentives for employers to hire local workers. That would actually stimulate the economy. Giving upper middle class folks money to buy a flat screen or a dyson vaccum is not going to be a stimulus that HELPS PEOPLE
Buying Chinese made consumer goods is not going to revive our economy. This is a short term simple approach to a long term complex problem and I am really disappointed in my elected officials for this election year fell good junk policy. I was ready to reach into the radio and SLAP both of the people I might vote for in November for President.
