Economic Stimulus Check

Letter to the Poughkeepsie Journal

I want to thank tax payers for the $300 Economic Stimulus Payment check I just received from the IRS.  However, as an expatriate living and working abroad and exempt from paying taxes in the United States, I am not sure why I deserve the check.  Rest assured I will spend your money wisely here in France but neither do I understand how that will stimulate the US economy.


I wonder how many hundreds of millions of your good tax dollars are going to the countless expatriates who do not pay income tax in the US but will happily spend the money in their countries of residence.    


Rest assured however.  It would take more than $300 for the Republicans to buy my vote this year.


Yours Sincerely
