    I really don't know anything about it but I think most would prefer a lumpsum, yet a $/month is better in the sense you won't have people spending thelumpsum all at once.

    I prefer that he gets out of office and lets somebody who actually knows what they're doing take over.

    That's what I prefer.

    the whole purpose of a payout like this is for money to keep moving (i.e. - to spend it). the last time bush gave out free money, people did not really spendit. instead, they saved it. therefore, the economy did not benefit at all. so in terms of having money MOVE, sending out a lump sum of $$$ failed horribly tohelp the economy. i think it's better to have monthly payments so people are less inclined to save it.

    I would rather have the lump sum, for the same reason I ask for the cash payout option everytime I buy a lottery ticket. Trust me, that money would getspent...

    I wish he had some better economic advisers. Because he doesn't seem to have a good grasp of how economics work, and unfortunately neither do his advisers.

    Man people who are outside of the hot seat always seem to know what should be done. I have my opinions but if something makes senese to me I let it happen, ifI think it will work regardless of my personal beliefs. Obama has been president for less then a month and already more positive change has happened to theeconomy than all four of bushes last term. Give it time, man rome wasn't built in a day and an economy can't be changed in a month. Making the pointthe problem is global republicanism, smaller countries aren't going to be able to pay back western banks, most of eastern Europe is already broke. Letobama do what he can I'm pretty sure his team of economic advisors know more about the economy then you do friends, that is the beauty of republicandemocracy...the smartes people are usually chosen by the people we chose.
