The Associated Press: Congress Sends Economic Aid Plan to Bush

People who paid no income taxes but earned at least $3,000 — including through Social Security or veterans' disability benefits — would get a $300 rebate.

"We believe the stimulus, the way it is targeted, will put money into the hands of those who will spend it immediately, injecting demand into the economy and therefore creating jobs," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told colleagues.

No, they will use it to help pay for the big screen HDTV and leather furniture they are "renting-to-own" at Aaron's.

If you don't pay taxes, and the government sends you a tax rebate check, you are what is known as a welfare recipient.

Basic economics.
