Jump start, lol, did our economy stop?

We don't need a jump-start to a temp solution, we need a solution!

Technically, it's on its way to stopping that's what a recession is, sustained negative growth.

So yes jump start is an accurate term.

This isn't meant to be a solution, it is meant to alleviate a trench in the business cycle.

We'll see about that. I just happen to be a little skeptical of any judgements our (lol) leaders make right now!

Historically speaking... when aid is given to people in times of low economic flow... they save the money or pay down bills, rather than spend it and drive the economy forward... Besides, its all cyclical anyway!

Paying off debt means that the businesses that hold that debt have cash flow for investments. The rebate does the same thing if you pay off debts.

If you have not at least taken a few econ classes please don't talk about it, it's a common sense discipline, but as cliche as it sounds, common sense is not all too common.
