Even people who didn't qualify for this year's stimulus check might get one next year. many people who lost their jobs this year, or whose incomes fell for some other reason, will get a second chance next year, thanks to a little-noticed tax-law twist.With the economic slump deepening, the extra help will come in handy in many households. http://finance.yahoo.com/taxes/article/106140/Taxpayers-Get-Second-Chance-at-Stimulus This money may come in handy with the new baby. Will it be of any help to you?

As much as it is nice to have some trickle-up economics going, I don't think the tax and give back method should continue. If people need access to more money, then why not just lighten their taxes to begin with? Oh, well, I'm not an economist or a politician. There may well be a reason I don't understand.

It would be a great help. Our washer is on it's last legs and our dryer already croaked so unless I want to be washing the old fashioned way with a bucket and a scrub board then I need a new one. I can hang clothes to dry.

I think everybody could use a little extra money no matter how much money they currently make. I am sure the people who do qualify for it would really appreciate the money.

There had been talk about another stimulus check this year before Christmas. I think that would have been great, and it would actually have been used the way the government had hoped... because most would end up spending it on Christmas. Even if we get one next year after the holidays, it sure would help. Our power bill always spikes in Jan and Feb, so we'd probably end up using it to pay that off, along with some other bills most likely. If it comes closer to May we'll probably use it for my son's birthday among other things. I'd like to take a weekend trip to NY city and take my son to a Yankee game for his birthday.
