I love how rube(io) blames this on the dems (even though they passed things that have been sitting on Mitches desk)

"Remember, months ago Speaker Pelosi and Democrats rejected the Administrationís previous offer of $1,200 per adult and $1,000 per child. Thankfully, sheís finally stopped holding working families hostage," Rubio said.

All he did was kill an immediate vote with no debate. He has yet to kill the vote after debate, or kill it by never even scheduling a vote.


edit: He's promising a vote on it tomorrow.

Got mine. Far short of $2000 per person.

Direct deposit or via that scammy looking debit card from moneynetwork.com  (That's how I got the last one 3 months later than everyone else)

Direct deposit. I heard it was coming, but I wasn't expecting it because last time it took months...

Are they basing it on 2018 taxes or 2019 earnings? The first stimulus check was 2019 if you had already filed it, 2018 if not. I assume it's all 2019 now, or are they just using the same criteria they did before?

Also, it drops $50 for every $1000 above 75K/150K. But with a starting point of $600 instead of $1200, the cutoff points for getting nothing would be $81K/$162K.

Edit: It drops $50 for every $1000 above $75K for single people. So the starting point is $600. So down to $0 if you're over $81K. But the starting point is $1200 if you[re a couple. So you don't hit $0 until $174K adjusted gross. Higher if you have kids.

Also, it doesn't drop in $50 increments, but at a rate of $50 per $1,000 or 5% for every dollar over your threshold. A couple with no kids and a 2019 AGI of $150,001 would get a payment of $1,199.95.

Yes, this is true.

Itís just stupid..there should be a way to better direct $ to those that need it... this isnít it

The first stimulus was even worse... really a transfer of hundreds of billions to those that donít need it

We shouldnít have gotten a dime

No we are not wealthy or close but we are not hurting.. we actually had a better year than 2019
