I was talking to an accountant the other day and asked him about the $13 dollars a week Obami is giving away. His answer went something like this. He says it is $8 to $13 per paycheck and that assumes you get paid every two weeks. So that would be between $16 and $26 a month. He also said it still taxable income, they didn't change the tax tables. Basically it's a shell game, they are paying you with your own money. As I understand it, all they are doing is withholding between $16 to $26 dollars less per month, so you'll get less as a return at the end of the year.
I haven't been able to find any info on it and was wondering if anyone else knew anymore details on it. It seems to me like they are just taking money out of your own wallet and handing it to you. I could be wrong though.
Oh and I would like to apologize to Chris for being an ass on his forum.
