Guess I should be happy but I cant help feeling like we are going to pay for this extra money sooner or later. I cant even use this extra money since my health insurance went up $40. Anyone else notice any difference in your paycheck?

I was thrilled to see more money in my paycheck. It will come in handy now that the hubby is UE. We are looking for ways to cut back and now do with much less. Crying shame that health insurance is so flipping expensive. But, we need it. Hubby just had surgery on his hand and will have to have the other hand done in a couple of months. Without insurance he wouldn't have been able to have the surgery.

Health insurance is way too expensive! Sad part is never even use it. Just annual physicals for me and the kids that cost a whole whopping $15 copay, after spending $400 per month. I just wish it was like vacation and we could carry it over. I would have a ton of insurance cash. Hope your husbands surgery goes ok.

I am unemployed, so I have no paycheck to compare. I am collecting unemployment, and I have received $25.00 extra, which is part of the stimulus package. Just like you said, the little bit of money is good, but you end up using it on something else, that has increased in price. It is basically a no win situation.

Yeah the money is gone before you even see it.
