"Spendulous"-Spending the Stimulus


Spendulous-adj.-Any bill that offers more in spending than in tax relief.

"Wow, Zoe, you went all spendulous with our credit cards buying new furniture at Ikea and now we can't pay for our Yaris"

I coined it, I claim it. Spendulous. As in, isn't this new Democrat bill spendulous. There's little stimulating about it, so it really is a misnomer to call it a "stimulus" package. I think it's named that because they didn't have a more accurate adjective. So I have supplied one. Spendulous. Rhymes with pendulous as in the Sword of Damocles style debt that will be hanging over the heads of our grandkids. Use it often. Use it wisely. But most of all, use it to accurately describe the debacle which will for now and always be known as "The Obama Spendulous Bill".

Get used to using it a lot the next two years, at least.

Will the stimulus bill compromise lower your tax rebate to $8 per week? That appears to be true. The final version has not been passed, but reports indicate the $500 per year in reduced tax withholding has been reduced to $400 per individual and $800 per couple. That only comes to $8 per week for an individual and $16 for a couple. If they start the payments in June and make it retroactive to the beginning of the year, you will get $13 per week until next January. Then, your rebate would drop to the $8 per week level. Are you felling stimulated yet? In a stimulus bill of almost $1 trillion dollars, you would think President Obama would have more for the working class.

Hey, there are talk shows down here talking revolution. And I don't think they mean the social kind.
