Economic Stimulus Explained

Found on Facebook:

Q. What is an Economic Stimulus Payment?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q. Where will the government get this money?
A. From taxpayers.

Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
A. Only a smidgen.

Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition
TV set, a analog to digital converter box, or a new computer, thus
stimulating the economy.

Q. But isn’t that stimulating the economy of China?
A. Shut up.

Update: Not PC has a more complete version of this.
