There has been talk of another stimulus package lately. Is it just me or does it seem as if our government is playing a game of Sims?
I like free money just as much as the next gal but this isn’t free money. If I were to get another stimulus check I can guarantee that it would go to luxuries such as paying my heating bill for roughly two months or groceries for a month and a half (I have a hungry teen) or getting my brakes fixed and my oil changed. It would not go to a new BlackBerry, video game console, clothing or shoes or anything else that as this point is not a necessity. The thing is the stimulus isn’t really solving the problem it is just borrowing from Peter to pay Paul.
The idea that they just keep throwing money at the problem isn’t making me sleep better at night. We don’t have a real economy anymore. Is anyone else kept awake by these thoughts?
I’m not especially excited about this economy.
I never got the first check! I’ve heard others say the same thing. Bad as I could use the money, I feel better that I didn’t get a “free” check. I haven’t done anything to earn that money, so I don’t feel like I deserve it. If I had it, I would use it to go to the doctor or buy medicine, food, pay the water bill or something exciting like that. Nothing frivolous here!
