An open letter to my congressman

Dear Congressman Sestak:

It turns out that the first economic stimulus check did not stimulate as much of the economy as expected. Could you please ask the government to send another?


Dan Kristie

But seriously - Come on Americans! You were supposed to spend those economic stimulus checks on quality, American-made goods. Turns out no one did, or they did and it didn't work too well. A report came out today saying that the GDP rose only 1.9 percent between April and June despite those checks (which I knew wouldn't work).

Well, I did my part. I dropped a whole bunch of money on an American-made Fender Stratocaster. In addition, I booked a trip, on U.S. Airways, to Costa Rica. Yep - spent way more than the $600 the government gave me. That's why I need another check.

I got myself a Nikon D40... I know its not "American," maybe someone should've explained the rules better... the guy in the mall looked American, does that count?
