well this is why we are not hearing about it...because Mitch is not letting it get to the floor


Republican senators have described the bill as “dead on arrival” in the upper chamber, while its majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has dismissed the package

Nancy Pelosi ... is aware that the bill's passing is a long shot.

On Tuesday, 2 June, Senator Roy Blunt, made it clear Republicans in the Senate were in no mood to rush to pass a second stimulus package, saying he felt that it was unlikely to happen in June

I think I read that the holdup was whether or not immigrants would be eligible for stimulating payments.

well the GOP and their proxies are also trying to make this about "Planned Parenthood is getting millions in this ACT...what does abortion have to do with COVID?"...but this is because they are eligible for the PPP (paycheck protection program)

Remember people...try to spend locally and support local business
resist saving a few bucks buying stuff on amazon, you are hurting your community

this is a cool idea/story to keep the money local

Talk about a second check is heating up...some talk about might apply only for folks making below 75,000


I kind of think democrats need to vote against anything proposed by Republicans

The way most of the money got spent on first package was unconscionable

So the original plan was to only give the second stimulus to people who make under 40K. Assuming my plan to spend the stimulus money on RAPID tests for everyone to self-administer isn't viable and they instead have no better option than to give another check, then this sounds good. In fact, double the amount for the poor people since less people are getting checks.

But instead, they're using the original cutoffs. Who initiated this change back?



The March bill provided a one-time $1,200 check to Americans who made up to $75,000 per year. The amount of the check was scaled down until it hit an income level of $99,000 per year, when it was phased out altogether.

The decision to stick to the March formula is a shift from over the recess, when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) appeared to signal that while Republicans would support another round of checks, the next round would include a lower income cap of around $40,000.

"I think the people that have been hit the hardest are people who make about $40,000 or less. Many of them work in the hospitality industry. ... That could well be a part of it," McConnell told reporters in Kentucky during the two-week recess.

My kids are old enough to not be counted as dependents by the federal government. No tax breaks and no stimulus for me!
