President Bush: "We've got a good economy right now. It's growing at rapid paces, and there's a lot of new jobs being added and productivity is high, and people are owning homes, and that's all positive. The fundamental question is: How do we make sure that that's the case next year, five years, and 10 years from now. That's really what we're confronted with." (President George W. Bush, Remarks At Parkland Magnet Middle School For Aerospace Technology, Rockville, Md., 4/18/06)

Do you consider $2,000 to be a lot of money? Because many Americans piss that money right back down the drain in prescriptions and gas alone. Particularly those elderly people. You think with rising health-care costs that $2,000 is really going to do anything? How about those tuition-hikes? You think those "families of four" will be able to put that $2,000 away towards a summer beach-house or something? Get real.
