We’re all about to get some money! Even the Communist News Network is celebrating!
American taxpayers would get checks of several hundred dollars from the federal government under a plan to stimulate the economy, sources said Thursday.
Congressional leaders of both parties were talking with their membership to sell the plan, sources said.
Sources on Capitol Hill and at the Treasury Department said congressional and White House negotiators agreed upon checks of $600 per individual and $1,200 per couple who paid income tax and who filed jointly.
People who did not pay federal income taxes but who had earned income of more than $3,000 would get checks of $300 per individual or $600 per couple.
President Bush, and Congressional Republicans, are giving me my free money back, just for being an American patriot. I’ve earned my money, and they want me to have it. Democrats tried to stall the bill, of course, but that’s why they’re Democrats.
To get to the agreement, Democrats dropped calls for increases in food stamps and an extension of unemployment compensation. Republicans agreed to allow people who pay Social Security taxes but not income taxes to get the checks, sources said.
Democrats talk about helping the economy, but when you cut to the chase they’re always Socialist to the core.
Thank God we have sensible policymakers in the White House! Thank God we have enough decent folks in the Congress to back them up when they take steps to save America!
