It seems Michelle Obama has her own twist regarding those whose income is low enough to qualify for the $600 government's so-called stimulus tax relief package. Criticizing the short term advantage to an audience of mostly African-American women in Michigan she stated, "What can you do with that? Not to be ungrateful or anything. But maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn't pay down every bill every month."
It would have been wise for her to have stopped right there. But she added, "And it may even feel good that first month when you get that check. And then you go out and you buy a pair of earrings."
