    This site is running too slow for me to search for the thread from 2 months ago. The one about Obama stimulating the economy by giving each tax payer an additional $13. a week this year and $8. a week next year on their pay check.
    Well, not true at all, 100% lie!
    My husbands boss got the new tax book today. Obama's tax break equals all of $3. a week.
    Big deal! We're really going to stimulate the economy with $3!

    And even that will most likely be taken back next year.

    Smoke and mirrors.

    Do you have proof or just the second hand word of your husband's boss?

    I guess we'll all see in a few weeks.

    I can give you a first hand account, that my weekly pay hasn't been increased at all since he's been in office. Its going to take more than $3.00 for me to feel like I'm keeping my head above the water.

    What proof, this is in the tax book the government sent her, what more proof do you need other then the governments own book.

    Thats right, and according to her tax book my husband will receive only $3. extra starting on next weeks pay check.

    I'll be glad to come back next week and verify he recieved only $3.

    A lot of American workers have taken a .05% cut in pay( myself included).
    Yep that extra 3 bucks on my pay check is really gonna help offset that decrease in wages.:laugh::laugh:

    LOL! Just like I said, it was $3 extra, proves obama is a liar.

    That extra $3 is going to be meaningless to us. Won't buy a gallon of milk.

    Just wait until Obama pushes through his nationalized health care. Paychecks will really decrease. . .

    Just curious, how did A lot of American workers have taken a .05% cut in pay?

    I guess the checks will be out soon. We'll see if $3 is all we get.

    Stimulus=inflation, the stimulus is not a direct tax but an indirect tax.

    Oh, now that's a change of tune... You said this person read the code and we will all be getting $3.

    However, let's play this game...

    If 100 Million American's get an extra $3 per week that is $300 Million dollars per week being injected back into the economy. That's over a billion per month. So to answer your original question, yes, I call that stimulus...

    What I SAID was,, according to the newest tax book, my husband gets only $3. a week, when obama promised $13. I did not say you were getting only $3 a week, but that my husband was. Get the facts straight, and stop making them up.
    And it was only $3 more, not what obama promised us is it?
    Wanna play a game? Talk to obama, he's playing games with our money, and lying all the way.
    He said $13, and your trying to take attention away from the fact theres no extra $13 on his pay check this week.
    Being injected back into the economy? You mean you believe everyone is going to go out and spend an extra $3 every week now?
    foolish.

    Wait a minute here. The private banksters demand billions of dollars in "bailout money" to fix problems they created and then both parties conspired against the will of 98% of U.S. citizens to deliver it to them so they could turn around and loan us our own money at interest to stimulate the economy?

    So now we're arguing about whether or not we'll get three bucks a week back from the criminals who conspired to steal trillions from us?

    I'm sorry folks but this sounds alot more like insanity than stimulus to me.

    Hold on to them? Better screw em on and lock em down or else these foks will be stealing them too! But hey nice guys that they are they'll probably loan em right back to us...with interest, of course.

    Sam says, "Say brother Clem don't you think just 13% on the loan of this hat is mighty good of Obama and the Wall Street boys?"

    Clem says, "Sure enough brother Sam my head sure would get cold witout a hat to wear."

    Jill says, "Wish my credit was good enough to get my hat loaned back to me at 13%."

    Thanks for reminding me to look at my wifes check. It is hard to tell because her annual increase kicked in on this check also. But I can say this, even with her increased pay (slightly), her federal withholdings went down by $20.96.

    I wonder if others can compare their check stubs...
