Why do the hypocritical bastards keep calling it "tax rebate"? Rebate is by definition a part of payment given back to the payer. But they don't give rebates proportionally to the taxes paid last year. They give least (or none) to people who paid most and most to people who paid least (or none). Drop the fucking pretense and call it what it is: "some extra bit of income redistribution by your jolly-fellow-Robin-Hood government"
