Michelle Obama went after the Bush tax rebate at a campaign event Wednesday in Pontiac, Michigan:
"You're getting $600 — what can you do with that? Not to be ungrateful or anything, but maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn't pay down every bill every month. The short-term quick fix kinda stuff sounds good, and it may even feel good that first month when you get that check, and then you go out and you buy a pair of earrings."
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham was quick to respond:
"I know $600 for a family in South Carolina can get kids ready for school, help with the gas bill and does make a difference for families trying to make ends meet."
We agree with Michelle, we should get the $600 tax rebate every month.
