Only 28 percent of Americans believe rebate checks will boost economy.

As most Americans “await the arrival of rebate checks from the federal government aimed at boosting the U.S. economy,” a Zogby poll released today “finds just 28 [percent] believe the government’s economic stimulus rebate plan will help.” The poll also found that 68 percent of Americans “disagree with the idea of the federal government stepping in to help investment companies that are suffering because of their heavy investments in worthless mortgages.”
