With all due respect, Diana, why should people who pay nothing in payroll taxes get not only the rebate this summer, but thousands off their income taxes, while someone who did pay $1,120 in payroll taxes last year get nothing? I an SO sick of people kicking and screaming "THOSE people DON'T pay TAXES" as if low-wage workers contribute nothing to society, when "those people" are actually decent, hard-working folks who are paying a disproportionate share of their income as payroll, sales, and excise taxes. This rebadte is designed to put money back in the hands of CERTAIN TAXPAYERS, and leave behind plenty of people who sure DID PAY TAXES, just not the "right" kind.
