You’ve heard about the millions of struggling American families who need those stimulus checks to survive.
No doubt there are many in that situation, but instead of sending money with any semblance of need, politicians dump bundles of money from the sky.
Many of those are the same who favor need-based programs, including Social Security.
I found this list from Kiplinger fascinating. This list is not exactly how I would characterize “spending.” Stimulus you say? If you can do any of these six, I think we need a new definition struggling. 😢
- Save for retirement
- Pay off debt
- Give it away
- Put it in emergency fund
- Put it in a 529 plan
- Buy a gift card for a local business
