This is a great explanation of the tax rebate program recently enacted by
> Congress. If you don't understand how it will work maybe this explanation
> will help:
> 50,000 people went to a baseball game, but the game was rained out. A
> refund was then due to the ticket holders.
> The team was about to mail refunds when a group of Congressional Democrats
> stopped them and suggested that they send out the ticket refunds based on
> the > Democrat National Committee's interpretation of fairness.
> Originally the refunds were to be paid based on the price each person had
> paid for the tickets. Unfortunately that meant most of the refund money
> would be going to the ticket holders that had purchased the most expensive
> This, according to the DNC, is considered totally unfair. A decision was
> then made to pay out the refunds in this manner:
> People in the $10 seats will get back $15. After all, they have less money
> to spend on tickets to begin with. Call it an 'Earned Income Ticket Credit.'
> Persons 'earn' it by having few skills, poor work habits, and low ambition,
> thus keeping them at entry-level wages.
> People in the $25 seats will get back $25, because it 'seems fair.'
> People in the $50 seats will get back $1, because they already make a lot of
> money and don't need a refund. After all, if they can afford a $50 ticket,
> they must not be paying enough taxes.
> People in the $75 luxury box seats will each have to pay an additional $25
> because it's the 'right thing to do'.
> People walking past the stadium that couldn't afford to buy a ticket for the
> game each will get a $10 refund, even though they didn't pay anything for
> the tickets. They need the most help. They are either lazy or think that
> society owes them for just being born.
> Now do you understand?
> If not, contact Representative Nancy Pelosi or Senators Hillary Clinton or
> Barak Obama for assistance.
