    That all became a moot point when Bush gave everybody a $300 check.

    When was everybody "given" a $300 check? I must have missed mine.
    I will say though, that under President Bush, I have more money in my hands thanks to his tax cuts. I am in no way "wealthy" either.

    That would be great except for the deluge of red ink that has been borrowed on your behalf that you will one day have to pay.

    Pay me now, pay me later, but you still pay.

    Sadly SC, most people couldn't care less, because it is just like the way that their personal finances are handled. Credit, credit, credit. Worry about it later, it doesn't bother me or affect me now, so why should I care.

    Little do they realize how much could be saved (and thus spent by politicians on both sides of the aisle instead of returned to the taxpayer) if we actually paid it off. Of course all of those international banks would just hate to have that happen, so that is why we make the minimum payment on our debt - just like we do on credit cards.
