Tax rebates arrive in Americans’ bank accounts

WASHINGTON – Tax rebates have begun dropping into bank accounts, but in this economy, gas and groceries may trump a high-end TV, a fancy dress or a new sofa — making the checks less of an economic jump-start than the government hoped for.

Analysts say the rest will probably be used to pay down debt. More from MSNBC

Don’t know about you, but I may “splurge” and buy a full tank of diesel fuel for my pick up…. If they honestly think giving our tax money back will stimulate the economy, than surely they would think that tax CUTS would, too. But, then again, if we keep our own money, the government cannot redistribute it “evenly” among others (aka Communism)
