The Senate Passed It!

Yay the senate has passed the bill to stimulate the economy!  Now if everything goes as planned, we’re heading to Disneyland!  That means no family camp this year.  I’m praying it happens for us.  We won’t tell the kids for a while and I’ve already “warned” Chad that we might not go to family camp this year.  He was pretty bummed about it but we can’t do both.  I don’t want to tell them too early, in case it doesn’t happen and so I’m not bombarded with questions for the next 9 months!   It will be hard at church with everyone asking if we’re going to camp, they are already asking us this!  Ok, off to deal with the sickies.

The Senate accord — reached after days of bickering and passed by 91-6 — keeps the House-passed rebate check amounts of $300 to $600 for people who have an income between $3,000 and $75,000, plus $300 per child.

Couples earning up to $150,000 would get $1,200.

But the plan also gives checks to more than 20 million Social Security beneficiaries and 250,000 handicapped veterans and their widows.
