Okay, so this 787 Billion bullshit could have been used for much better things. From what I understand, this equals about 25,000 dollars per taxpayer. Here's what should have happened; The government should have sent each taxpayer a check for 20,000 dollars. They could have gotten with a bunch of different businesses and said "Hey, you're gonna want a piece of this, so what kind of coupons and deals will you offer that we can stick in the envelope with the check"? Sure, a lot of people would save theirs, but how many people would use it to pay down/off debt or spend it on a down payment on a house or vehicle? I should be president.
