Stimulas: How local people reacted to the deals
“I don’t think it’s that bad a deal. Yes, it’s probably got a lot of pork in it, but what bill hasn’t in the last 100 years?”
— Phyllis Wright, 52
“I don’t think it’s such bad deal.”
— Brandy Guthrie, 31, who added the stimulus check she received last year paid for work on the family van.
“I don’t have too much confidence in it.”
— Ned Chavez, 72, worried that it won’t juice the economy and that his grandchildren will be stuck with the bill.
“Some of it, yeah, some of it, no.”
— Palisade High School freshman Eddie Vial, who said the energy conservation provisions were attractive, but not so much the top-down nature of the measure.
“So far, I’m not real excited,”
— David Hood, 42, who said the prospect of adding $13 a week to paychecks isn’t enough to help the economy.
