Re "Taxpayer rebates planned for May as stimulus bill passes," Feb. 8
As a veteran and an American, I hope voters remember the Republican senators voting against extending benefits for the unemployed, home-heating subsidies for the elderly and benefits for our returning veterans. Their reasoning? To show party unity. What's good for America seems to have no place in their party platform.
I already know what I'll do with my $600 rebate. I'll apply it toward my $5,000 property tax bill due this year. Easy come, easy go. I don't feel too stimulated.
Instead of giving people a few hundred dollars, the government should send all the money to China and Japan to pay down our country's massive debt.
