Can some one please explain to me what the Republicans were thinking when they did this?

Excerpts from:​O5"WASHINGTON (AP) — The fate of $600-$1,200 rebate checks for more than 100 million Americans is in limbo after Senate Democrats failed Wednesday to add $44 billion in help for the elderly, disabled veterans, the unemployed and big business to the House-passed economic aid package.Republicans banded together to block the $205 billion plan from advancing Wednesday..."I mean, won't this look like they are against Vets, the elderly, the unemployed and Businesses, during an economic down turn and during an election year?Thanks for answering,Ben

Hey Buddy It is good to hear from you. Some of us were getting worried about you down there with all the storms and all. Take care. :)


Actually the worst thing here has been the constant warm to cold change. It will be warm (In the 70's on a few days) then dip below 30 for a few. Many here getting sick from the changes.


thank you for the info if they can not do it across the board it should be left alone, ever give one child a cookie when their were 10 standing in line well same here friend.


Well It would be hard to say that you were for those groups for sure. I'm sure it's the same reason as always slimy politicians trying to get more for personal or special interest.

No skinny:

They were not or working against one another as usual, maybe just do not care!!?


even if those are cut back i hope they will band together on their votes because they have been left out long and far to long enough is enough.


hi ben u get my urgen temail??? pls... let cafe knowu r ok...


Sorry Lancers, I haven't been in the Cafe' because there are two trolls that are constantly harassing others (myself included). It is safer just to pop on every now and then.

These two have been doing this for some time and last time we butted heads, one of them threatened to post my e-mail address - so, I have stayed away to keep my personal information personal. Thanks for caring though. I do appreciate it.


ok i posted u r fine.....i am happy too... our missing karissa here in my provincd e has been 10 or 11 day missing...diving in very cold waters 12 yr old...i had posted...and updated...
hope USA storms leave all safe!!!!!!!!!!! winder if we will get it and how???


You don't appear to understand money. Where do you think this money will come from? It will be printed which will drive the value of the dollar down. It will increase our debt. It is estimated that 60% of the money will go to products that are produced in foreign countries, thus increasing there value. Why do people need a rebate? I'm not eligible for it nor are any wealthy people, its just another burden put on the taxpayer which we can't afford. Hope this helps.


I am a retired accountant. I understand money very well, thank you.

BTW, I also have many college hours of economics and fully understand the implications of what it means to do this or not to do this - money wise.

The question is why would they do this politically?


"WHY DO PEOPLE NEED A REBATE?" It is the low income, elderly senior citizens who need this. It may help some of us to eat, pay our outlandish heating bills, enable us to buy our meds which we may have put on hold due to no money. No, wealthy people should NOT be entitled to it. Don't get me started on another burden for the taxpayer. Its the war which has put our country so far back in the hole which Clinton had just got us out of.


Sinbad, I suggest that you borrower $100 from Ben, so that you can pay him to do your taxes. If he charges you more than you have ($100), just put it on your tab.

Isn't economic stimulus fun? Now Ben can go out and spend $100 more after all of that "economic activity". ;-)


I don't know what you are talking about but they are blocking this because it is not including the elderly senior citizens on SSA. It also says it will be based on you 2007 tax return. Well when you are on SSA as your main source of income you don't have enough income that you would have to file. I certainly do not support the Reps but in this case they are right.


Sorry, but I think you have it backwards. The Dem's wanted the Elderly, disabled vets, unnemployed and businesses inncluded and the Republicans blocked the bill to keep these individuals and businesses from getting the rebates.
