If it weren't for the Dems, the people who need this most would have been left out again, just like in 2001. It sucks that she had to sacrafice food stamps and unployment increases, even though the cost of living, manily food, has gone up so much. Screw the poor must be the Republican motto??



Tax rebates deal announced By ANDREW TAYLOR, Associated Press Writer



Congressional leaders announced a deal with the White House Thursday on an economic stimulus package that would give most tax filers refunds of $600 to $1,200, and more if they have children.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Congress would act on the agreement hammered out in a week of intense negotiations and uncustomary bipartisanship "at the earliest date, so that those rebate checks can be in the mail."

President Bush praised the agreement at the White House, saying it "has the right set of policies and is the right size."

The rebates, which would go to about 116 million families, had appeal for both Democrats and Republicans. Pelosi's staff noted that they would include $28 billion in checks to 35 million working families who wouldn't have been helped by Bush's original proposal. Republicans, for their part, were pleased that the bulk of the rebates more than 70 percent, according to an analysis by Congress' Joint Tax Committee would go to individuals who pay taxes.
Individuals who pay income taxes would get up to $600, working couples $1,200 and those with children an additional $300 per child under the agreement. Workers who make at least $3,000 but don't pay taxes would get $300 rebates.

The first rebate payments could begin going out in May, and most people could have them by July, said Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, noting that the IRS will already be overwhelmed processing 2007 tax returns. The rebates were expected to cost about $100 billion, and the package also includes close to $50 billion in business tax cuts.

The principal players in pulling the deal together were Pelosi, House Republican leader John Boehner and Paulson. The package would allow businesses to immediately write off 50 percent of purchases of plants and other capital equipment and permit small businesses to write off additional purchases of equipment. A GOP-written provision to allow businesses suffering losses now to reclaim taxes previously paid was dropped.

Pelosi, D-Calif., agreed to drop increases in food stamp and unemployment benefits during a Wednesday meeting in exchange for gaining the rebates of at least $300 for almost everyone earning a paycheck, including those who make too little to pay income taxes.

"I can't say that I'm totally pleased with the package, but I do know that it will help stimulate the economy. But if it does not, then there will be more to come," Pelosi said.


Boehner said the agreement "was not easy for the two of us and our respective caucuses."

"You know, many Americans believe that Washington is broken," the Ohio Republican said. "But I think this agreement and I hope that this agreement will show the American people that we can fix it and will serve to move along other bipartisan agreements that we can have in the future."

Paulson said he would work with the House and Senate to enact the package as soon as possible, because "speed is of the essence." But he also cautioned that "the work is far from over."

The Treasury Department has already been talking to the IRS about getting the checks out "as quickly as possible, recognizing that the tax filing season is ongoing," said Treasury spokesman Andrew DeSouza.

The rebates would phase out gradually for individuals whose income exceeds $75,000 and couples with incomes above $150,000, aides said. Individuals with incomes up to $87,000 and couples up to $174,000 would get partial rebates. The caps are higher for those with children.

The agreement left some lawmakers in both parties with a bitter taste, and they complained that their leaders had sacrificed too much in the interest of striking a deal. Many senior Democrats were particularly upset that the package omitted the unemployment extension.

"I do not understand, and cannot accept, the resistance of President Bush and Republican leaders to including an extension of unemployment benefits for those who are without work through no fault of their own," Rep. Charles B. Rangel, D-N.Y., the Ways and Means Committee chairman, said in a statement.
Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., the Finance Committee Chairman, said leaving out the unemployment extension was "a mistake," as he announced plans to craft a separate stimulus package in the Senate starting next week.

Majority Leader Harry Reid said the goal is to send the package to the White House by Feb. 15 for Bush's signature, but he noted the Senate would likely try to add more spending to the package.

"I expect that the (Finance) Committee and other senators will work to improve the House package by adding funds for other initiatives that can boost the economy immediately, such as unemployment benefits, nutrition assistance, state relief and infrastructure investment," Reid said in a statement.

Asked about this, Paulson praised Reid's leadership but said, "I don't know what he has in mind."

Bush has supported larger rebates of $800-$1,600, but his plan would have left out 30 million working households who earn paychecks but don't make enough to pay income tax, according to calculations by the Urban Institute-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center. An additional 19 million households would receive only partial rebates under Bush's initial proposal.
To address the mortgage crisis, the package raises the limit on Federal Housing Administration loans from $362,000 to as high as $729,750 in expensive areas, allowing more subprime mortgage holders to refinance into federally insured loans. To widen the availability of mortgages across the country, it also provides a one-year boost to the cap on loans that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can buy, from $417,000 up to $729,750 in high-cost markets.

I picked up on that part right away too. And who will this rebate help? Well, the people who have bills will probably, by and large, plow it back to the credit card companies....or take the whopping $300 and buy a week of groceries and a tank of gas. If they really want to help out the people and stimulate the economy, how about some of those credit card companies collecting their 30% giving everyone of their card holders a $600 credit? Then the people can turn around, charge more things which will stimulate the economy and the credit card companies can then continue gouging their card holders.

This is the stupidest possible course for this money, and trying to designate beliefs by party affilation shows equal lack of understanding.

Tell me what good a couple of hundred dollars really does to the larger issue of economic health in this country? Most people are going to go out and spend this money in Target or WalMart and buy goods imported from China or somewhere else. Once that's done, what benefit does this serve?

I don't begrudge someone an extra few meals, or some new clothes, but contrast that against finding ways to use this money to help businesses create new jobs where people might find employment that lasts for years. Which course is actually better? Do we really need to be reminded of the old Chinese proverb: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"

We have a 14 trillion dollar economy, what the hell is 145 billion going to do up against that?

I heard a phrase once, talking about money and wealth, that went something like: "a rich man considers his money and plans for his kids and grandchildren, a poor man looks at his money and plans for the weekend" That difference in long and short term planning is what makes people either wealthy or poor, no matter where their starting point.

This plan is nothing more than short term thinking, combined with election year politicians trying to buy votes. It will do nothing to help the economy past a short bump, but it will help perpetuate the same political hacks that have run us into the ground.

Shame on anyone for buying this as a good solution. I suspect that those who find this appealing are the same group who believes in the "gimme, gimme, oh great government" style of politics. Enjoy your money - while it lasts.

I completely agree. With the debt our country now has, it is an insult to us to throw some of our money back at us, hoping we'll act like mindless zombies and run to WalMart to spend it.

I don't begrudge anyone who gets the rebate and spends it however they like. I just think it is a very near-sighted way to stimulate the economy, and it will not help much in the long run. No one will buy a house with this money.

I don't understand why people who don't pay taxes are getting a "tax rebate". That just doesn't make sense. Sounds more like "money for nothing" to me.

Personally, I'd rather have my chicks for free.

Johnny and I were at Dollar General the other day and I asked what happened to their magnets.....I'm a sucker for a pretty magnet....and the lady said they had to pull the stuff from China. Now, she said there is very little if anything left in the store made in China. From now on, I'm going to shop there first for some of the stuff I use. Just thought I'd pass this along so people could have an informed decision as to where to spend some of that rebate money.

$9,200,510,324,660.00 The National Debt. I suspect the amount given to those who do not pay taxes would be compared to a grain of sand on a beach when you take the debt into consideration.

I also suspect that whatever is given will be taken away in a slight of hand trick of some kind. That being said any money I get will be put on the mortgage to get the house paid off quicker. I actually got a 14% increase today and I am already planning to use a good portion of it to to add to the principal of my house note each month. I hate debt probably more than anything, I know it seems old fashion to not use credit cards and pile on debt and to pay in cash, but there is a freedom in it for me.

We weaned ourselves off credit cards about five years ago and it's been wonderful. Our car is paid for, there are no monthly credit card bills....well, other than for aol....and in about 6 years our house will be paid for. I'm with you....I don't like charging things any more. I'd rather do with out until I get the money saved to buy what I need.

That is what I am talking about, paid mine off three years ago, the cars paid and other than the usual utilities, phone and internet my only debt is the house. A very liberating feeling, one I highly recommend.

Patti and Ann - I'll double ditto your sentiments about keeping personal debt down. I don't like to carry a lot of debt on credit cards, etc - my debts are usually tied to my home and/or car and I always try to pay off loans like that early rather than late.

this might sound crazy, but my husband & I don't even have an actual credit card... just debit cards. I know myself & him as well, that we would "find" reasons to use the credit cards & build up unneeded debt. I love to shop, though I'm not a "shopaholic" per say, but I do enjoy shopping & looking for bargains. I know myself that when I have some extra money, it can "burn a hole in my pocket" if I don't control it! We have enough debt with our car & truck loans, along with general living expenses, that we certainly don't need to add to it. We try to save & buy what we can with cash, even bigger purchases like our Harley, our camper trailer, 4-wheeler etc.
I hate to see my oldest daughter, who's 20, & just establishing credit, buying all kinds of senseless things with the credit cards that they allow her to open at the various mall stores & such. I cringe everytime I see her walking in after a day at the mall.

Well, the answer is darn sure not to encourage more credit card use, that's for sure.

As for the ecenomy, now is just about the perfect time to BUY into the market. Past that, we need to incentivise those that actually create jobs, especially in the small business sector. We have had a good run of job growth, but the downward pressure is there. But, why is it that the Democrats are asking for tax increases to help stimulate the economy??

By the way, did John Edwards ever resign from being on the board of that hedge fund??

Thanks for the tip, not buying products made in China is important to me. Was there a reason given why the store made that decision.

By the way, a while back somebody said they couldn't find pencils made in the USA anymore. Well I found some. Papermate at Office Max were USA pencils.

There are still some USA products and I try to support them whenever possible. We had alot of USA Christmas presents this year, and for the 3rd straight year, we had a China free Christmas!

As for the stimulus, I wish I knew more about economics, but I tend to think it would be better just to let the recession come and go. All the government cares about is getting the population to spend, spend, spend - they actually discourage savings, which our country badly needs. They're probably hoping for a boost in the GDP so they can tell the world our economy is healthy in order to keep those foreign loans and investments coming in. I'm hoping Ron Paul gets some air time tonight at the debate on this issue.

Well when he said he "worked for a hedge fund" I would like to think he no longer works for one, which in fact he no longer does and has been open about the fact that he did. He was paid and learned the ropes which is usually a good way to beat them at there own game if you have to go after them. It is hard to beat a system if you are unaware of it's inner operations and just because you earn a living and are bright and learned does not mean that you do not understand the fact that everyone may not be that lucky, but it does not mean that you can not fight for them as well.

This man is not a sleaze, he is good man, a good provider, a great father and husband, goes to church, grew up and worked hard to get where he is, suffered a great tragedy with the loss of his son. If you want down rate him you will have to do better than that.

Johnny just had a good idea....for what it's worth since Bush didn't ask us for input....but rather than giving away a lot of money, why not lower the gas to $2.25 a gallon and let that decrease in price help lower the costs that have risen due to transportation costs. Keep the lower gas price in effect for about six months and let people see some real long term benefits that keep money in their pockets to begin with. Halliburton could do without that few extra billion it would cost.

I always figure they never ask for our opinion, but I do have a phone and the Internet to let my representatives know how I feel. This way I let my voice be heard and then If the rest of the population stays silent and the vote or outcome dosn't go their way...

Whats next after telling the oil companies how much to charge?

The way to help working people is to create more jobs for them to fill and to keep the price of goods they have to buy as low as possible. This is common economic sense and there was a time when it was actually the mantra of the Democratic party. It was JFK who said "A rising tide lifts all boats." Today, the Democratic party operates based on class envy. Take from the rich because it's not fair that they have it. This in turn leads to job loss and a depressed economy. Clinton actually understood this back in the 90's. Now forget about it.

How would you do that? Forced price controls? They tried that in the early 70's and it gave us the later 70's. The way to bring gas prices down is simply to increase the supply or reduce the demand. There is no other way.

Creating incentives to keep high paying jobs in the USA is the best way to go. Unfortunately one side of the aisle calls this "corporate welfare".

And we certainly can't have that

It's easy to shoot down an idea but not so easy to have one.....so what would be your idea to stimulate the economy?

If the government were to subsidize gasoline prices, for easy math, let's say they lowered the price at the pump by $1. Of the 20.6 mil brl per day of oil we consume, 9.2 mil brl per day of that goes to gasoline, or 388.6 mil gallons per day. Lowering gasoline retail price by $1 would cost $388.6 million dollars per day. Taking that for one year would cost about $140 billion, around the suspected cost of the stimulus package.

It is an idea, although I'm not one that would advocate government subsidies. The money to pay for such a program has to come from either tax revenue or from borrowing money so really what is the net gain?

Anyway, lower prices would result in increased consumption, which would ultimately make the cost of that program increase and would work against the movement(s) to decrease oil and gasoline consumption. The bigger problem might be the day that the program would end and the prices had to go back up, talk about price shock.

If you were talking about actually dictating the prices the companies charge rather than a subsidy program then I wouldn't even begin to try and justify that.

On a side note, here is a list of the state fuel taxes. Federal gas tax is $.184 and state average is $.215 for a total of about 40 cents per gallon.
