Moody's economist: Take that rebate check and put it right back in your fuel tank.
Mark Zandi, chief economist of MoodysEconomy.com, reports that the amount of Bush's "rebate" stimulus checks will be almost equal in dollar value to the escalated price of gasoline. So in essence, "Bandar" Bush is robbing the Treasury in order to stimulate WHOSE economy?

4. The idea that people are going to take these refund checks and head to Macy's....
.... is laughable. But America's a laughable (to avoid crying) place these days.
