I’ve blogged about the stimulus before, but here’s an update… a new poll out today by AARP finds an overwhelming majority of Americans (90%) think the government must ensure that those who rely on Social Security are included in any stimulus rebate package, even if they are divided on whether a rebate plan would effectively stimulate the economy (52% v 48%).
Sounds like the American public is saying if you are going to do this, it should be fair. Who can argue with fair? The proposed Senate plan (Baucus-Grassley) would provide rebates to most Americans, including approximately 20 million Americans that depend primarily on Social Security for retirement income.
We’ll be watching the vote as it unfolds, so stay tuned.
