Subject: If this doesn't tick you off, NOTHING WILL.....
American population: 330,483,530
Stimulus bill: $2,000,000,000,000.00 (2 Trillion)
Dividing the cost by every person in America is $6,051.74 (man, woman, child) On Average, there are 2.63 persons in each U.S. Household. That would have been a check for $15,916.07 for every household in America, on average.
Oh, wait! The final bill passed by the Senate was for $2.2 trillion, so every Citizen could have received a check for $6,657 and the average household, $17,508.
Think about it. The government could have given every person over $6,600 and every household on average over $17,500, but instead will give $1,200 to each adult under a certain income (not every man, woman & child).

This is pure Rom Emanuel, "Don't let a catastrophe pass without jumping on the bandwagon getting everything you want in the emotion and the panic of Congress' reaction over the situation".--or something to that effect.
