So what does everyone think about this payment. Do you think it's REALLY going to help?? It might for ... a few days. To be honest, my husband and I are considered to be low income and using the calculator on the IRS website we are only getting back $1500 even though they SAY the married couples can get $1200 plus $300 each child, which would equal $2100 for us. I was a little disappointed when I saw the estimate but it's better than nothing RIGHT? We will pay a month of rent, buy the kids some summer clothes, fix a few things on my van..and then be poor again.
I also find it VERY ironic that the first day the money starts to be deposited the gas prices SKY ROCKET to almost $4.00 a gallon? Does anyone else think this is a big coincidence?? I think someone is trying to take advantage of the little people who will be getting some of this money! So, whatever is left from bills is going straight into the gas tanks. The little people just keep getting screwed harder and harder by this country! The economy is getting worse and worse. People HAVE to get to get to work to make a paycheck but it is costing half of our paycheck just for gas! That is absolutely ridiculous! How is anyone supposed to be able to survive this way??
