Tax rebate: date to be delivered / received

Straight from the IRS website, the Bushosi deficit-widening "stimulus payment" is to get mailed according to Social Security number as follows:


Last two SSN digits: Payments will be transmitted no later than:

00 through 20 May 2
21 through 75 May 9
76 through 99 May 16


Last two SSN digits: Payments will be mailed no later than:

00 through 09 May 16
10 through 18 May 23
19 through 25 May 30
26 through 38 June 6
39 through 51 June 13
52 through 63 June 20
64 through 75 June 27
76 through 87 July 4
88 through 99 July 11

Don't get me wrong. I'll be cashing my check (and paying off credit card debt). But the idea that this is somehow going to jumpstart the economy is ridiculous. I really wish we had a few more Sen. Tom Coburn's in Washington. (Coburn is the guy who took fellow Republican and PorKing Ted Stevens to task for his "$230,000,000 bridge to nowhere.")

Somebody has got to deal with the spending in Washington. Anyone who has ever had to deal with a household budget knows that spending is half of the equation.
