Here is the statement and the rebate checks and yes it was based upon income earned and came out of income tax revenue
TIf you don't pay taxes you didn't get a rebate thus there is nothing free about this moneyhe package will pay $600 to most individual taxpayers and $1,200 to married taxpayers filing joint returns, so long as they are below income caps of $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 for couples. There is also a $300 per child tax credit
Regardless, that all time record deficit was much more because of the decline in tax revenue than it was an increase in spending. Now are you going to blame the decline in tax revenues on Obama also? Or did the Great Bush Recession have anything to do with it.
