Deal reached on tax rebates for stimulus
By ANDREW TAYLOR, Associated Press Writer 11 minutes ago
WASHINGTON - Democratic and Republican congressional leaders reached a tentative deal Thursday on tax rebates of $300 to $1,200 per family and business tax cuts to jolt the slumping economy.
Congressional officials close to the negotiations said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio reached agreement in principle in a telephone call Thursday morning.
I give up. It's useless to fight the machine. These piece of shit politicians claim that they can't get anything done because of this reason or that reason, but then, with a phone call and a promise they easily distribute $150,000,000,000 ($150 BLLION) up to the ultra-rich. These traitors of the american ideal and principles have, in a matter of a couple days perpetrated the biggest give-away in American history. And what will the ignorant brainwashed pitifuls proles do? Nothing. They'll be too excited to have a few hundred bucks in their pocket that they won't notice what is real. By the time they've spent it and all that money has moved up the economic food chain they'll be obsessed with another carrot on a stick or perceived threat. I used to think that by 2050 this country would be in the shit can, but now I'm not so sure we've got that long to go.
The government has become a conduit for transferring our national resurces into the hands of the ultra-rich while the desperate masses suffer. Fuck the proles, they're getting what they asked for.
