I will be saving my check for a rainy day. Sadly, I think that there will be many rainy days coming. I don't think this will have even a small
effect on stimulating the economy. This money would probably be put to better use to help me survive another month or two if my company decides to
start laying people off. The housing market is so bad that it would take months to sell my house if needed, so it would be very difficult if I were
to lose my job. I would need all the help I could get to ride it out. I am not saying that I will be laid off, but better to be safe than sorry.
CNN has a poll up now (not scientific) but 58% will be paying bills, 33% will be saving it and only 9% will be spending it. So only 9% would be
putting the money back into the economy.
