Oh and btw, no earrings for me and even if I did purchase earrings they would be the $12 kind from WalMart. So, really I could have used $600 to purchase one pair of earrings, two weeks worth of gas and a month's worth of groceries. Or I could have placed it in an interest bearing account and maybe had a little extra money set aside to help pay for Christmas gifts and my heating bill this winter. So, yeah, that's what I could have done with that. But no, this "quick fix" went right back from wence it came...the government.
“You're getting $600 - what can you do with that?” Mrs. Obama said in Pontiac, Michigan last week. “Not to be ungrateful or anything, but maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn't pay down every bill every month. The short-term quick fix kinda stuff sounds good, and it may even feel good that first month when you get that check, and then you go out and you buy a pair of earrings."
