Remember these freebies from Congress?
I remember getting a check in May 2008 for $300 and another one for $250 in May 2009. Now Congress is going to make us pay for it?

Bush to sign stimulus package Wednesday
The government hopes the package, which will send most Americans tax rebate checks by May, will either prevent a recession or make one relatively brief.(see correction below)
President said he's looking forward to signing $170 billion economic stimulus package passed last week by Congress. Consumers could see tax rebate checks by May.
February 11 2008:
The package also includes tax breaks for equipment purchases by businesses, as well as payments to disabled veterans and some senior citizens. The bipartisan measure moved through Congress at relative break-neck speed, going from initial discussions to enactment in less than four weeks.
"I really want to thank the Congress for getting this bill done," Bush said. "It's going to help deal with the uncertainties in this economy."

When Will I Receive My Stimulus Check?
Economic stimulus checks of $250 were sent to more than 52 million Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients in May 2009. If you did not receive your check, call 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or contact your local Social Security office. For more information, see Social Security.
