  • I'm being penalized because I make too much money to get a tax rebate/stimulus check

    I hear guys talking about the big screen TV's and kick ass amps that they are going to buy with their refund check. I'm not getting a check, and I feel discriminated against.

    Why should somebody who has worked hard to get a decent job be penalized twice:

    1 - paying way more in taxes than you in the first place
    2 - getting shafted on the rebate situation

    Why should my hard earned money go to reliefers and lazy pukes to buy more toys.

    I'm not being a smart ass, I'm just expressing how I feel.

          Because the idea is to "stimulate" the economy by giving money to people who will in turn spend it. They know that you'll just put it in savings oke:

          I don't think I'm getting a check either :cry: Sucks because living in So Cal is like making half as much when living in most other parts of the country.

          But at least I'm getting a pretty good bonus this time around

            You need to revisit your financial planning if you make enough money and are STILL complaining about not getting a tax break. get over it...be grateful that you have a job in this ****************ty country when buttloads of people are getting laid off!

            "Descriminated"...haha, don't use a word you know nothing about fool.

                That's the breaks sometimes man.
                For the record I don't think I'm getting anything either. Of course the 7800.00 bonus I got in March and the three paychecks I'm getting in May will more than make up for it. Oh and I resigned my lease so my rent for May has been deferred and the rent for June is cut by half.

                New guitar, amp and cab baby!! oke:

                          Economists said your income bracket doesn't have a real and apparent need to spend it, since you're well off already, so you'd probably save it just as well. people who make less money apparently have a bigger need to use it, like, feed their families, or, in our case, buy expensive hobbies. there's a big populace who is getting rebates, from the very poor to the average middle class. if you save it, the money goes back into the money pool, and no real stimulus happens.

                          not that that matters. the rebates are coming out too late as it is, and most middle class households are just going to pay off debt.
