3 On Your Side: Economic Stimulus Peckidge Details
Reporting
Jim Donovan
PHILADELPHIA (CBS 3) ― Good news from Washington D.C. Thursday, the details of a proposed economic stimulus peckidge have finally been nailed down. Most tax filers will receive tax rebate checks of between $600 and $1,200, or even more if they have children.

Here is a breakdown of how it will affect you:

- Individuals who pay income taxes will get up to $600 tax rebate check.
- Working couples will get up to $1,200 in a tax rebate check
- Families with children will get an additional $300 per child.
- Workers who make at least $3,000, but whose income is too low to require that they file a tax return, would receive $300.

The tax rebate checks will phase out gradually depending on your income:

- Individuals making between $75,000 and $87,000 will get a partial rebate.
- Couples making between $150,000 and $174,000 will get a partial rebate.
- These income caps will rise slightly for those with children.

The income levels above are based on your adjusted income, not your gross income. But don't spend the money just yet! This economic stimulus peckidge still has to be approved by the full Congress and even then, the checks aren't expected to mailed out until around June.

The only question I have had since I saw this is, if you are married with kids, do you get $1200 plus $300 per kid ??

Or is it $1200 only if both parents work ??

Great, I pay $10,000 a year in taxes and get $300 of it back. And this helps how?

I'm going to put mine in a shoebox under the bed, and use it to stimulate NOTHING. That should show them.

Don't forget all the hayseeds that will spend the $300 at WalMart on foreign goods.

This idea also sucks ass because it's going to cost millions to implement. This country is going down the shitter pretty quickly. I'm beginning to think NJ & the Feds are in a race to see who can fuck things up the most.

Lewis black out it best...they are giving us money to remind us of how fucked we really are! I love the wording..up to 600. Does that mean because I only make 30 a year I am only gonna get 300? I hope not or I'm just gonna rip up the fuckinh check. How about giving all the young kids who have a shitload of student loan debt. Put a 15k amnesty on private student loans for people who have 40k+ in loans and are under 28.

Mine is going right to my savings account. I'd like to retile my kitchen & 2 baths. My furnace & central air are original to my townhouse, and about 20+ years old. I think I may replace them in the spring.

I know I should pay down my student loan, but I kinda need the liquidity.

Nope. Not everyone gets paid. If the cap is 174k, we won't.

ok, I watched the Repub debate last night just because I like to be educated (not going to vote for one)....and the only person that made any sense on commenting about the 'economic stimulus' idea was that hayseed Huckabee (and if he weren't a religious whackjob, I'd consider him...). Anyway, Huckabee said that the economic stimulus package was a dumb idea and that the money could have been better utilized by widening I-95 2 lanes, both directions, from Maine to Florida. It would create jobs, ease congestion, and also increase US production of steel, etc. Makes sense to me.

The only thing this will stimulate is my savings account. I don't 'need' to buy anything, and for anything I'd want to buy $600 doesn't mean shit.

I just want to know why do the Dems have such a hard-on for the poor. Bush wanted $800 - $1600, but the Dems said "what about the poor that make $3000 and don't pay taxes". Fuck them! How the fuck do you make less than $3000? That is less than 10 hours a week @ federal minimum wage. They should be happy enough that they don't have to contribute, via income tax, to supporting our country. "Oh, don't worry mister poor person, I will give the government 28% of my salary so that you do not have to worry. By the way, here is an extra $300 just for you being you."

This is why I have to be a Rep. even though I hate religion, am pro-abortion, and pro-science. Fuck the poor, get off your lazy ass and get a job.
