Tax Rebate Deal Reached

Congress has reached a deal with the white house to give tax rebates to taxpayers. Inside the linked article is this little gem:
Individuals who pay income taxes would get up to $600, working couples $1,200 and those couples with children an additional $300 per child under the agreement. Workers who make at least $3,000 but don't pay taxes would get $300 rebates.
oookay.... So how does someone who pays NOTHING in taxes get a rebate? Not only that, they just increased their pay by up to 10%? If they didn't pay any taxes, where is this $300 dollars come from? Oh yeah.. silly question... from MY pocket of course.

So I walk into Best Buy and say to them ' I want the rebate for this DVD player I'm not going to buy'. What do you think their response will be (after they pick themselves off the floor from the laughing)? This is why we don't trust the government, because logic waved bye-bye to them a long time ago.
