We the US citizens that didnt get any of these jobs and already have jobs, would recieve back $18 a week in our pay checks for this in a tax break.
How does that help the economy????
So they maybe employ 100 folks to work on roads? that isnt going to help all the folks that have been layed off. And if we still have a job yeah we make an extra $18 a week big freken deal. That isnt much believe me. And if hubby lost his job that wont pay his part of the bills will it. or the other way around.
Oh and Obama stated that no family would ever be below the Poverty line again?? What does that mean For Amy and her 4 kids? Amy is on Disability and has to support herself and 4 children on a bit less then $700 a month thats way less then the poverty line. Will Obama give her a $1000 Check per month to bring her up to the poverty line?

Second where is the link to the certified copy? I want to start reading it. I'd like to check it out myself to see if I can find all the goose eggs they left for us.
I doubt that this stimulus is going to do anything. The construction companies are only going to hire the minimum amount of people they need to do the project if they already don't have enough people already to do the project.
The congress coned us.
