    I believe I direct Stimulus check payment would stimulate the economy better than a drawn
    out tax cut. People need a large infusion of cash now, not a trickle down increase in revenue, as is the case with Obama's current economic stimulus plan.

    A check to every America of $5,000.00 dollars should do the trick to stimulate spending once again in America.Do the math, that adds up to just about $700.00 Billon doesn't it?

    How will Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress pay off their friends if they do that?

    300,000,000 people x $5,000 per person = $1,500,000,000,000

    About $1.5 Trillion.

    Hell we've already given that much to the BANKING class haven't we?
