Show Me The Money

The government wants to give you money if you make up to 75K a year. Processing those checks is going to cost us a bundle and it makes me cringe to think about it. It would be so much better to apply the money to next year's taxes. No muss, no fuss. But the government thinks you're going to run out and kick start the economy by buying a bunch of "stuff". So keep an eye on your mailbox! And start thinking about new stuff to buy.

The government also wants to send an additional $300 for each child in the qualifying families. I'd only allow the rebate for two children per family. If someone wants to have more than two, I think the rest of us shouldn't have to subsidize that choice. But that's another post for another day.
