Life Back To Normal?

Well, things seem to be back to normal after a chaotic month.

Coach Robinson got recalled to work and returned to work last night from his 30 day lay off. A few other parents of my friends also returned to work, or got a new job and started work this week. But there are still a lot of my friends who's parents are still unemployed.

The stimulus package that just passed..... a BIG shortfall for the American people. Sure, it helps big business but what does it mean to you and other taxpayers?

Yep, you take home more off of each pay check. My mom is grateful for that. BUT, and it is a big BUTT (no pun intended). If you take home more off of a paycheck that means at the end of the year when you file your tax return, you end up OWING instead of a refund. For those who make less than $45k a year, you probably will only owe $100 to $200. But anyone who is middle class, you will owe $500 to $1000. SO what does that mean? More people going into debt, and filing for bankruptcy, etc. This stimulus bill does not help the average or below average American. It helps only the middle class and the wealthy. And not to mention that big business. Barack has failed on his promise to the poor.
