My stimulus was spent on a small bag of groceries.

What makes you think the politicians are PLAYING stupid?????

I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt.......afteral l....we did put them there?!? :eusa_think:

I think the thing to remember is that the candidates are chosen by the people who can afford to finance their campaigns; big business and the wealthy. We all get to vote for people beholden to those groups.

If anyone is stupid, it's the people whose votes can be bought with a few hundred dollars of their own money.

My $0.02 worth.

This year, taxpayers will receive an Economic Stimulus Payment. This is a very exciting new program that I will explain using the 'Q and A' format:

    Q. What is an Economic Stimulus Payment?
    A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

    Q. Where will the government get this money?
    A. From taxpayers.

    Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
    A. Only a smidgen.

    Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
    A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set or a  new computer thus stimulating the economy.

    Q.  But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?
    A. Shut up.

Do you ever think that our politicians will get tired of playing stupid?

a) Shanea, that was funny!
b) How can they get tired of playing stupid? They ride it to the bank every 2 weeks.

Where Will All
The Rebates Go?

With food and energy prices soaring, and house-price declines accelerating, consumers are under even more financial pressure than they were in January, when the economic-stimulus plan was developed. As a result, more of the $110 billion in rebates is likely to be spent on basics like gasoline, groceries and paying down debt -- and less on gadgets or fancy vacations -- than was expected a few months ago.
