about that stimulus package

For the record, I _hate_ what's happening right now. I think we should chuck the whole thing and rewrite it with no bipartisanship involved. Screw the tax-cutters and spend spend spend. Okay? Now, on to the point of this post.

Given the probable timing of the close, and the current composition of the stimulus package, we will very likely be eligible for the entire $15K tax credit for buying a home. We pay enough in taxes, no amount of income makes it go away, the house costs more than enough, blah, blah, bleeping blah.

Hey, I love me some $15K off on my taxes. No, I really do. But will this have _any_ effect on how much money I spend? No. None. Zippo. Nada.

That's some bad, bad, bad legislation.
