Ok i must've missed something, like when did Obama gain the authority to hand out stimulus checks.
He says the money is going to come from these windfall profits. Yet it's going to take five years for the companies to repay the money through these
windfall taxes, so where's the money coming from now? It's coming from us, from the money they've already stolen from us through taxes, just like
the 1st stimulus checks !
They can give me back all of my money, of course i'm gonna take it, who wouldn't it was mine to begin with. Honestly that $500 that he's talking
about won't really help me do a thing. It's not just the price of gas, it's the price of everything. The price of gas has caused the price of
everything else to rise with it.
The fact that i lost my job several months ago due to downsizing caused by this rotten economy doesn't help matters much. And yes i did read the
article and see where he says he's going to implement something to help save jobs, but that's too little too late for some of us. Quite frankly
i'll believe it when i see it.
He can sit there and pretend that he knows how these fuel prices, and our economy in general are effecting the average person, but he doesn't have a
clue. I'm sorry but a man that says that he spends hundreds of dollars on sleepovers for his children, has no idea what many Americans are going
through. The price of gas being over $4 a gallon isn't making a dent in his pocket, but there are those of us that are drowning with no life raft in
He can keep that money, although i'm not going to refuse it if offered. However i won't be bribed to vote for a man that i don't think has the
qualifications to be the next president of America. Especially a man that is using the present state of our economy to take the opportunity to attempt
to bribe us with our own money.
Here's an idea, how bout Obama and all the rest of them voluntarily take a pay cut. We all know that the majority of the politicians don't do
anything to justify the exorbitantly high salaries they receive anyway.
