Dave Ramsey on Government Stimulus Package (Part 2)

Personally, I have no problem with the government giving me back more of my money. The problem that I have with this package is the way it allows people who have not even paid an income tax to collect a refund. This is effectively socialism and income redistribution because it takes money out of one groups pockets and sticks it in the pockets of another. Once again, our government is punishing people who are successful.

If the government really wanted to be fair, they should have issued a rebate check to everyone who PAID income tax, regardless of their income. If you made 4 million dollars or 4 thousand dollars, but you still paid income tax, you should get a check. The catch is, the person who only paid on 4 thousand, should not get as much back as the guy who paid on 4 million.

Here is a link to an audio file of Dave Ramsey talking about the package.
