Tithe that rebate check ! A challenge....

Are you peeved that the Bush administration is going to send out rebate checks using money that is said to be borrowed from China?
Well, then, make a statement when you get your check. Donate at least 10% of it to your favorite Democratic presidential candidate ! I will start off by setting the bar a little higher. When I receive my $600 in May, I will donate $100 of it to my own presidential pick. You are wondering what I will do with the other $500? Easy. I will go to the nearest gas station and fill up the tank of my Chevy Cobalt.

Good idea...but I-and millions of others who are self-employeed-will probably never actually see such a check, and if we do, we will immediately cough it up to pay our quarterly taxes so that the government can pay the interest on our growing debt to China who loaned us the money for the rebate in the first place. This is the kind of nonsense that makes me think term limits might not be such a bad idea.

I agree with you that it is pure nonsense ! Because I am a retiree and within the required income level, I will qualify to get a check & I do plan to donate $100 of it to my favorite candidate.
