Bad joke on taxpayers

The Spokesman-Review

So let me get this straight: “Millions of Americans enjoying their small windfall from President Barack Obama’s ‘Making Work Pay’ tax credit are in for an unpleasant surprise next spring. The government is going to want some of that money back.”

So in spite of the trillions of dollars being flushed down the toilet in failed bailouts, average hardworking Americans will need to pay back some of the paltry “stimulus” doled out to us by this administration. What a joke (on us). Giving us a pittance and then taking it back is a slap in the face. Perhaps the president could better use that money to stage another photo op over the site of the World Trade Center.
