While I am always very happy to get money back from Uncle Sam, I am of the opinion that this stimulus package is a waste of and won't stimulate anything...simply too little, too late. Last time they did this, most people did not spend it like the government wanted, but they used it to pay off previously accumulated debt or put it into savings.

And now this...in their haste to rush this out the door, our infinitely wise Congress is basically throwing this money at everyone, not only those who don't make enough money to pay income taxes, but also illegal immigrants who have tax ID numbers. Fine, they pay taxes, but just like giving illegals drivers licenses, sending them a check further legitimizes them and encourages more illegals to follow.
