Boehner’s Stimulating Stimulus Question

U.S. House Republican Minority Leader John Boehner speaks dramatically before the House after the House Democrats push through an 1,100 page, trillion-dollar spending bill with less than 12 hours of public review time.

Speaking in Opposition to the “Stimulus” a/k/a Spending Bill


  1. Will the stimulus bill compromise lower your tax rebate to $8 per week? That appears to be true. The final version has not been passed, but reports indicate the $500 per year in reduced tax withholding has been reduced to $400 per individual and $800 per couple. That only comes to $8 per week for an individual and $16 for a couple. If they start the payments in June and make it retroactive to the beginning of the year, you will get $13 per week until next January. Then, your rebate would drop to the $8 per week level. Are you felling stimulated yet? In a stimulus bill of almost $1 trillion dollars, you would think President Obama would have more for the working class.

    Thanks for your comments.

    The stimulus bill stimulates big government and is even counter-productive for the economy. In fact the bill causes a bigger catastrophe than if we did nothing!
