    too bad we will be paying higher taxes to pay it back.

    I'm not getting one they say I make too much. Just love a government that penalizes you for doing good , haha

    Remember when you're figuring out your tax deductions you want to estimate them so you end up even at the end of the year. If you get money back it means that the government borrowed that money from you all year and never paid you any interest on it. That means your money was de-valued at the rate of inflation all year. In other words, your money is worth less when they give it back to you.

    Well, you can buy from walmart and sent it to china, you can buy gas and send it to the middle east, you can buy electronics and send it to japan, or, you can insure it stays in the us, and go to a garage sale
