Just a Stimulus Thought

There is one thing that keeps irking me about the stimulus package. Ok, there is definitely more than one thing. But, here is one aspect I can’t get out of my head. I keep wondering how many people, who are on the verge of losing their homes or who have recently lost their job, are tapping their own retirement accounts to help keep going. Then, I keep thinking about the fact that the government is going to charge them a penalty for withdrawing their funds. Big bailouts to multi-billion dollar companies, and additional taxes for Americans just trying to keep the lights on. So much for caring about Main Street.
