sooo....what'cha gonna get with your refund?

seeing as how everyone is likely to get somewhere between 300 (single) and 600 (married) in the mail sometime this summer ... what are you gonna get? I'll probably spend half on new batteries and the other half on some DVDs I've been eyeing.

Yeah, I am a bit skeptical too. Is there something that actually list the requirements for receiving the tax rebate? Do all 'tax payers' (I use the term loosely as some actually receive more back than they pay) get the same rebate or is it based on something else? As a single parent, I am looking at $500.00 from what I understand.

Here's hoping for more toy money

Same that I did with my tax refund. ~25% to the Cousteau Society, CPPA or some other charity I haven't paid this year, another 25% to money market/trading/savings account and 1/2 goes into the checking account to be hopefully spent on wining and dining a young lady, buying toys, getting friends drunk or some other very serious matter. But could just as likely end up at the power company or the grocery store.

As for gloriously not spending money, the walmart foamie is nearly complete with grocery store meat-tray tail group, tape covering and T-52 canabalized components. Total investment under $10. Even better if it actually flies, which I'm beginning to think it will as it has that X-250/skimmer look with the low wing and dragger gear and it's very light. 36" slim wing, 6v 400, 6x4 prop, doing damage.

Is it true that some Democratic politicians are asking that the money be returned to them?

I plan to invest our 600 bux in mutual funds,unless Mrs. little nail decides to book a flight to NYC to visit our grand daughters. That 600 bux is chump change, when you pay over 11K in federal taxes. George

Yep, they are. Here's the web site:

https://www.democrats.org/support/

They're asking you to send them your tax refund. Unblieveable.

Of course they're asking for your refund.
It's not called the "no shame" party for nothing.

BTW, LOL about the "tax cut will cost x " idea.

This is money taxpayers were overcharged and now is being only partially returned.
Thats like your waitress complaining thats it's costing her x dollars to return your change to you.

If it was'nt for the Prez, all that money would just dissapear into the pockets of the special interest groups. Remember, the goverment can't waste what it does'nt have.
Democrats: The real risky scheme.
