    $275 Bil for Bus and Ind – Includes a tax cut of $500 for individuals and $1000 for couples by reducing payroll tax withholdings (I don’t qualify for that as a tight small business) and (no losses except for 2 outstanding invoices – that I can’t really write off because of my tightness)

    $119 Bil for Healthcare – maybe I don’t have to order that med-bracelet that says “Do not resuscitate or rescue – tell cop to take good aim at brain”

    $325 Bil for Ed, Infra, Energy, Science, Other – maybe some trickledown

    $106 for Needy – maybe I should apply for food stamps (na – not at this time – I’m ok with cash flow)

    Well, apparently the taxpayer is tired of taxpayer bailout being reported as government bailout…

    Americans on bailout: Stop spending

    This wouldn’t be so bad if they hadn’t already poured that much into the pockets of the people who caused this.

    One problem with the loss carry back is that the authors of the mess will collect more huge amounts from the treasury for the losses for which we have already paid them.
