1. I could save it all up for two months and get a haircut at a good salon.
2. Once a week my wife and I could have coffee and a slice of cake at Starbucks.
3. If I stick to store brand, can get a gallon of milk, loaf of bread and some peanut butter and jelly...WHOOPS, almost forgot...because our federal government does such a LOUSY JOB on protecting our food sources, peanut butter is off the list right now.
4. Half a tank of gas.
In short, here is the truth about the UGLY DUCKLING that Obama does not want us on Main Street to figure out. It is TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMICS at its worst. For starters, a FULL FIVE PERCENT of the entire Stimulus Bill is given to the government itself to create more government with under the guise of MANAGING THE MONEY...let's make the beast bigger. The rest of the money is then given to BIG PROJECTS and BIG COMPANIES who will then spend most of it on themselves with very little of anything trickling down to us...OH, the jobs...because E Verify was left out of the bill deliberately, 300,000 of those jobs (if they are actually created) will go to illegal aliens...even worse, leaving E Verify out of the Stimulus Bill allows around 1.7 million illegal aliens to KEEP WORKING at jobs FULFILLING FEDERAL CONTRACTS THAT ARE PAID FOR WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS.
Since Obama went on Latino TV recently, and promised the Illegal Aliens AMNESTY IS COMING, I would like him to explain to us here on Main Street why it is that CRIMINAL ILLEGAL ALIENS get to keep their jobs (because of his signing the bill) while Americans HAVE LOST THEIR JOBS. You see Mr. FIRST BLACK HARVARD EDUCATED PRESIDENT, we are in a depression, and it IS US OR THEM (as a black man you should understand this concept), and you and YOUR CONGRESS seem intent on CHOOSING THEM...explain to me why, and explain to me why LEGAL CITIZENS ON MAIN STREET SHOULD NOT TAKE TO THE STREETS IN A COLLECTIVE MASSIVE UPRISING IF YOU FORCE THAT REALITY (AMNESTY FOR ILLEGALS) DOWN OUR THROATS. What gives you and Congress the right to allow NON CITIZENS, CRIMINAL ILLEGAL ALIENS the right to take bread out of our children's mouths?
For that matter, what gives you and Congress the right to give TRILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS to Corporate America (the UBER RICH), to FAILING BANKS (more UBER RICH) and then toss THIRTEEN DOLLAR A WEEK crumbs at us? You call that CHANGE, I call that a CON JOB.
Obama to Treasury: Start cutting taxes
President tells U.S. Treasury to implement cuts in for 95 percent of Americans; by April 1st, workers will see less taxes withheld from paychecks.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- U.S. President Barack Obama ordered the U.S. Treasury Saturday to implement tax cuts for 95 percent of Americans, fulfilling a campaign pledge he hopes will help jolt the economy out of recession.
The tax cuts are part of a $787 billion economic recovery plan passed by the Democratic-controlled Congress over Republican opposition. The aim is to put more money in the pockets of Americans and stimulate the economy by increasing consumer spending.
