I think the only reason we are seeing any consideration of a rebate is because the stock market took a dump loosing over 2000 points in just a few months. Had that not happened you would have seen nada, zip, zero from the federal government. It would have been business as usual since those at the top had lost nothing. As Bush has screwed up everything he's touched I think he was hoping to slide out of town after the election having raped this country with his stupid economic policys, unethical and illegal government policys, and incompetant cronies. In trying to pump the economy he's hoping to try to keep the dog and pony show going just long enough to so republicans through out the land aren't send running out of town tarred and feathered.
Sorry for all the cliches.
What will $600 buy? That would pay for about one month's rent and some groceries depending on where you live. Uugghhh we've been Bushwacked again.
