for a stimulus plan to me it means a financial bailout or a type of insurance to keep your economy afloat. It depends on what the stimulus plan is used for to determine the pr…os and conns like for instance. If the government plans a stimulus plan for wall street will it be for the right reasons and how will you benifit form it if you are under a ressecion..
Receivers of Social Security will receive a payment of $250 in May. It will happen automatically.
America does not need the stimulus plan.
The stimulus plan is called stimulus because it is introduced to fix the economy from going down hill. The main purpose is to create more jobs and prevent different sectors fr…om collapsing or filing for bankruptcy. Stimulus plan aims to help people and hence country out of recession.
No. It already failed based on Obama's own criterion. The Obama administration promised to keep the unemployment rate below 8% if his stimulus plan was passed. Since the plan …was passed we have not had a single month of unemp;loyment below 9.5%. 4.3 Million Americans have lost their jobs despite Obama's promise to create 3 million jobs with the plan. It and he have a collossal failure. In the election of 2008 America fell for yet another slick politician with the gift of gab - or in his case the gift of being able to read a teleprompter.
Yes and no. The Obama Administration's Chairwoman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Christina Romer, announced that when passed, the stimulus plan would not allow the unemp…loyment rate to go above 8%. But that rate was frozen above 9.5% for 14 months - each of them after the stimulus plan was passed. On the other hand, while the president's critics say it was a failure, the president's supporters and a number of economists from both parties say the problem was the stimulus needed to be larger. However, it did in fact save or help to create thousands of jobs. Several fact-checking websites have debunked the myth that the stimulus did nothing. By most neutral accounts, it seems to have put the economy on a better path, even if it did not succeed in dramatically lowering unemployment.

In physiology, a stimulus is a detectable change in the internal or external environment. The ability of an organism or organ to respond to external stimuli is called sensitiv…ity.
Medicaid is administered by the States, which have some discretion in what to cover. Medicaid eligibility rules are more liberal for some individuals, such as pregnant women. …However, within each State, there is, in general, only one Medicaid plan.

It depends on which political party you ask. His opponents would say that Obama's stimulus plan created no jobs and was a failure because it did not lower the unemployment rat…e, which continued to be high even during the time when the stimulus was being implemented. On the other hand, while the president's critics say it was a failure, the president's supporters and a number of economists from both parties say the problem was the stimulus needed to be larger.

Unfortunately - no. Obama's stimulus plan was based on the theory that government spending can boost the TOTAL economic activity of a nation. Unfortunately history has prove…n this theory to be false. It goes back to what economists call "the 'seen' and the 'unseen'". The famous French economist Frederic Bastiat explains it like this. "There is only one difference between a bad economist and a good one: the bad economist confines himself to the visible effect; the good economist takes into account both the effect that can be seen and those effects that must be foreseen. A hundred thousand men, costing the taxpayers a hundred million francs, live as well and provide as good a living for their suppliers as a hundred million francs will allow: that is what is seen. But a hundred million francs, coming from the pockets of the taxpayers, ceases to provide a living for these taxpayers and their suppliers, to the extent of a hundred million francs: that is what is not seen. Calculate, figure, and tell me where there is any profit for the mass of the people." It is important to remember that ALL government spending comes from taking money from the private sector (either through taxes or government-produced inflation). REAL economic growth MUST come from the private sector because the wealth of a nation comes from voluntary exchanges which give people what they ACTUALLY want (putting it another way, money is not wealth...goods and services are wealth). While government spending may be necessary to deal with criminals and invading armies and conflicts between citizens over property rights (things which involve the use of FORCE), government spending that competes with the private sector (ex: government schools) produce inefficient monopolies that are not reflective of the actual wants and needs of individuals. The most dramatic example that government spending does NOT improve the OVERALL economy was WW2. Government spending exploded. People were working...they had jobs. But the WEALTH of the nation DROPPED. People did NOT have they things they wanted. They did NOT have the cars, food, housing that they desired. Most people assume that the war was NECESSARY. But that is a very DIFFERENT question than "did the war increase the wealth of the nation?". If WW2 had actually GROWN the economy then we should have CONTINUED to produce tanks, keep millions of men in uniform, continued to produce bombs...and the economy would grow even after the war. Of course that would be no different than having government workers dig ditches and fill them back up in order to create "jobs". And at the end of WW2...many of the airplanes, ship and tanks ended up as scrap. Note that in theory, a government might stimulate the economy by providing startup funds to an industry in the same way banks do. Unfortunately the reality is that banks usually make their decisions on lending based on an assessment of risk and potential returns on their loan. Governments make their decisions on such "stimulus" funding based on political considerations (rather than economics). A review of how the stimulus funds were allocated and distributed under the Obama stimulus plan drives home this point and helps explain the failure of the stimulus plan.
Yes, you can have both Medicaid and a private health insurance plan. The Medicaid plan will pay after your private plan pays. This means that your doctor (or hospital or other… service provider) will bill your private plan first; then they will send the private plan's explanation of benefits (called an "EOB") to Medicaid.
