Economic Stimulus Payment 
9th-Feb-2009 05:29 pm
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.

I'M GOING TO STIMULATE SOMETHING ALRIGHT *thinly veiled allusions to masturbation*

If it goes through that means I can COMFORTABLY afford supplies for university (and buy some moar brand of course XD as well as force a few people to make me some comission work)

The only thing that money is going to be stimulating is the balance of my savings account or investments.

I know, I'm boring ^^;

I'm totally with you. My accounts could do with a little more padding. That's if I get anything.

My understanding is that if you made 100K or under last financial year you will get something. You will receive the most money if you made 80K or under though.

I think it's a shit way to "stimulate" the economy, but hey, "free" money. It's cheaper for the Government than giving a tax cut and makes people feel like they're getting something.

Q. Doesn't our economy almost entirely hang on whether China buys our mining produce, and therefore stimulation of their economy is the only way for ours to survive?
