I saw this in the new today:
WASHINGTON (AP) – The millions of economic stimulus payments gave a massive jolt to household finanances in May, sending after-tax incomes up by the largest amount in 33 years.
Was Mr. Bush right? I don’t know but I do know that three families have bought pigs from us with their tax refund checks. Two of the three families bought piglets or growers to raise for meat themselves thus further leveraging their tax fund purchasing power. Vermont is making a push for people to spend their rebate checks locally here in Vermont to further leverage the local economy. Time will tell if that and President Bush’s economic stimulus package has a long term effect and tempers his legacy.
