Remember that the Government does not make money. They take yours and my money and dispurse it back out as they see fit. I want to know why they have all our extra money to begin with? We are stupid in this country for allowing our government to get so large and so powerful.

Government is only supposed to protect us the tax payer not the spotted owl.
Yup.... didn't get the check or the f'ing child credit just some dumb azz letter telling me I am rich... They weren't kidding when they said "phased out" after 75/150K....

Don't worry, if the Dems win, they'll raise all our taxes enough to cover this handout's cost several times over and the "average" American will still hate the guys making a decent living.

Over 75k they start reducing the 600 rebate amount. If your like me you might walk away with the $58 check I got. And I was not very far over 75k.

Boy it must be nice to make 75-150k a year. I make less than 75k and I'm happy with what I have. You all making more than 75-150k a year shouldn't be complaining, whats a measly 600 to you anyway. Man the people on this damn forum. You have good jobs paying good money and want more...greedy. Be thankful for what you have

That's got to be the dumbest chit I've ever heard! It's not the $600 It's the fact the we pay the majority of the taxes in this country and they are giving our hard earned money to people that are "less fortunate", and the jackazzes that thought they were getting a free home mortgage. DON'T BUY MORE HOUSE OR BOAT THAN YOU CAN AFFORD!!! Or any items for that matter. DON'T HAVE MORE KIDS THAN YOU CAN AFFORD! I'm tired of bailing people out that can't pay their bills It has become the American way to charge up debt and then EXPECT someone else pay for it

I'm sure most on this site are fine, it's the freeloaders that I'm referring to.

It's not that we aren't happy. It's the fact that we have to give 1/3 of every dollar we make to the government and we get nothing in return....
