Perhaps you’ve heard the buzz words, economic stimulus package lately?  Well if you haven’t, all you need to know is that the government is trying to jumpstart the economy before it completely flatlines.  According to CNN, it’s official:  The Senate Thursday passed by an overwhelming margin an approximately $170 billion economic stimulus package.

Yay!  It’s about time we all got a break!

In a nutshell, couples earning up to $150,000 would get $1,200.

And when I say we, you know what we I’m talking about– the people in the middle, doing what they’re supposed to, day in and day out, just waiting for a break.
