With all due respect, Cherry, why should people who didn't pay the taxes get the rebate this summer? I am SO sick of people kicking and screaming "but not everyone is going to get a rebate because they didn't make 6K/12K in taxable income!" It's not rocket science--this rebate is designed to put money back in the hands of TAXPAYERS, not people who didn't pay taxes.

You actually didn't show any respect. Cherry was hardly kicking and screaming. I hate to tell you this, but people who make less than 6K/12K DO pay taxes: SS, medicare, sales tax, excise tax, etc.
