For those of you who don't want to read all 591 pages of the (Speaker of the House Nancy) Pelosi payoff known as the stimulus bill just go to page 305. That alone should outrage you enough.
Americans get $1,400, but wait, if you're a federal employee and have to stay home with a child because they are not in school you get $1,400 a week for 15 weeks. An hourly wage of $35 at 40 hours per week for 600 hours equals $21,000. What about the rest of America at home with children? A one-time shot of $1,400. This crap needs to end here and now.
Wake up, America. They don't care about you and me, it's about pushing their agenda through.
