Two Questions on a Sunday Night
Part of the Bush stimulus plan aimed at heading off a recession would be giving individual tax payers a little check (I’m seeing something between $200-300) in hopes of stimulating short term consumer spending. Of course, there are other reasons to do this and the entire stimulus package will contain other components, but this check from Uncle Sugar to you is what I want to talk about.
First: Do you think that individual checks like these are a good idea in heading off a deepening recession and why?
Second: If the stimulus package is approved, what will you do with the check that you receive?
