It all goes to buy imports, and benefits China.

Next idea?...

(I like that there are ideas, but let them help here)

If you really believe in Keynesian theory, why not make it a million dollars each? What could go wrong?

Maybe we should all take the 3 grand and go out of our way to spend it under the table.

Take the money and spend it on guns, ammo and long term food storage, because you are going to need it.

Your sights are far too low. Just make it $30,000,000. It’s just paper now.

Note to _resident.

I already have three thingamajigs, I don’t need a fourth.
But I could use another doohickey or finnegan pin and to purchase one of those I will need another thousand.
Thank You,

"And replace a $3,000 'THINGAMJIG' on a furnace...."

AND, they made fun of George H.W. Bush when he didn't know much about grocery store scanners?

Naturally, the biased, corrupt, in-the-tank-for and protector/defender of Dear Leader at all cost, Lame Stream Media will not comment on this much less, report on it.

This CLUELESS, dumber-than-dirt, IJIT, probably has never seen a furnace; would not know one if it blew up in his house and has 0 concept of how one operates....never mind, that an entire "Furnace" costs less than $3,000, and there ain't no parts that you can/need replace "on a furnace" that costs anywhere more than a couple of hundred dollars, so that goes to show just how out of touch this MORON really is.

I prefer thingamabobs.

Do I still get the money?

P.S. Don't give it to my neighbors.

They'd just blow it all on worthless doohickeys.

In an earlier similar account, Jeff Chandler gets the prize for his comment:

“The President’s comment drew an immediate, angry response from the doohickey industry”....

‘Nuff said about that.

How about just whacking down the size of government to Constitutional parameters and giving us our money back—instead of giving it to terrorist states like Pakistan and paying for extravagant vacations.

$3,000 dollars is mighty cheap for a vote. But hey if your selling your birthright it’s just a little bit better than a bowl of pottage.

Great point. We can't depend on Obama or Romney to change that. The only sucking sounds they hear is from their Wall Street fund collections.

Or I could be an idiot and buy a $2000 guitar.

As if $3000 for paying off credit cards or buying “thingamajigs” from China will help the economy. What an embarrassment. But I don't know who I'm more embarrassed about; the president or those clapping for him.

One reason we are in trouble: Free Stuff

The folks who are GETTING the free stuff, don't like the folks who are PAYING for the free stuff, because the folks who are PAYING for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.

And, the folks who are PAYING for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop.

And the folks who are GETTING the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!

Now... The people who are forcing the people who Pay for the free stuff to pay for it have told the people who are GETTING the free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So... the people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are PAYING for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people GETTING free stuff than PAYING for the free stuff.

Now understand this. All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason?

The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

The United States officially became a Republic in 1776, 235 years ago. The number of people now GETTING free stuff outnumbers the people PAYING for the free stuff. We have one chance to change that in 2012. Failure to change that spells the end of the United States as we know it.

Is a $3,000 thingamaJIG (obama said it, not me!) on the furnace one of those things that makes the house cool in hot weather? I always wondered what they called those.

Obama's Economic Plan: Give Every American $3,000 to go buy "Thingamajigs"

Obama is being true to form. He's already given us cash for clunkers and $8,000 towards purchase of a house so $3,000 for thingamajigs make perfect sense. Now if only he could pop $2,000 for a whatchamacallit, then I'll stop making fun of his ears and Michelle's boob belt...........

Actually, I believe the reference is to the same $3,000 figure as the Kenyan Clown gave during his weekly radio address: Right now, Congress should give every responsible homeowner the opportunity to save an average of $3,000 a year by refinancing their mortgage. (link)

If so, then that hypothetical $3,000 would come from squeezing the banking industry; though, so far, all of the coerced "refinancing" schemes from the politicos have been a joke: the uptake has been virtually zero on any of them — the main reason of course is that the implementation is left up to the banks which have no interest in doing any coerced refinancings.

The biggest joke of course is the most recent "$25 billion foreclosure settlement"; so far, the only beneficiaries have been the states, which have received a few large checks and cashed them.

I don't think that even one mortgage has actually been refinanced yet under the new settlement agreement, nor do I expect to see any more than a token amount ever processed.

Here’s how it REALLY works: Obama’s people - democrats - each get $3,000. So do we. But with us - middle class conservatives - there’s a hitch - we get the money but we have to pay back $6,000- to cover the cost of those getting to keep the cash...
