White House: Stimulus showered billions on taxpayers

Last winter's economic stimulus bill has put billions of dollars into taxpayers' pockets and the economy this spring, the White House plans to say in a report out today from the Council of Economic Advisers.

The report, coming a day before the April 15 tax deadline, says the law has delivered more than $200 billion in tax relief and other direct benefits, mostly to middle- and lower-income families. More than $70 billion was paid in the past three months.

Of course, they're not saying that the people who received the money will have to pay it back, in higher taxes, with interest, to our enemies abroad.
