  • What is the point in giving stimulus when the State of Indiana takes it all for Child support? All of it went to the ex.. And I'm a, now struggling, SBA and she is already on welfare! She receives hers as well as the extra for 2 children, which is really extra income on top of what she already gets. And she gets mine while my business is left struggling or possibly close?!! And I will have to pay taxes on it as well?! Oh, and she moved out of state thanks to the raise in her income... Thanks for making the lazy rich!!! Welcome to a Greater (and even Stupider) America! SMH....

  • The numbers dont add up ....First 250 b. to individuals making under 75.000 yr. and up to 99.000 yr. each get a 1200 check and an extra 50/ per child .....and ppl getting SS and SSI benefits ...............All the ppl in this bracket are suppose to receive $1200 out of $250 billion One problem ....its not enough to cover everyone ....So they are giving it out in waves ...1) ppl making under 99.000 yr. and 500 for each kid .... there is not enough to cover the ppl in the forst wave how do they decide they go in alphabetic otder ? and ppl at the end of the alphabet lose out ? or do they start by the most impoverished ???? doubtful . i bet they start at the ppl that make beyween 75.000 yr to 99.000 yr . ..... which means ppl who make under 75000 yr . will be left out ..... ALSO , why is the 250 b for individual checks and 250 b. for enhanced unemployment benefits on the same line ? ...... it appears that there is only 250 b for both groups put together , which would mean its actually only 125 b. for each program .... even if its seperate the grand total equals 1 trillion and 250 billion but they claim it equals 2.2 trillion ....which means , there is 850 b. not accounted for perhaps higher (250 b ). So most americans will not see any relief at all there is 90% of americans in the below 75.000 yr. ( income ). 9.9% of americans make above 75.000 per year 0.01% of americans make over 50 million per year and more ........that group is getting 550 billion . thats not nice trump .many americans ...... like almost all of us will be expecting help in this relief package .............. and it will of run out before it even reaches 30% of us ....same with unemployment And the 00% of all Americans are the ones who will be paying back this 2.2 care package ..........and the less than 1% of americans get the bulk of it , yet they do not have to pay it back ....since trump cut their taxes now a large number ...DO NOT PAY ANT TAXES ... that group used to be taxed at 91% here in the US ........ack when things were good here in the United States .and businesss were booming ...everyone was working and thriving The great America ppl wanted to return to when they voted for trump ..............NOPE Just the opposite is happening........You just dont realize it yet .

    • @TrueMohax as ur to reply. as whom. the Democrats should be the ones that all America needs to worry about. if that's ur finger is seriously pointing too. the Democrats fought hard during the senate, debating the the rights to aid all & every American as to the coronavirus, the Democrats have always created bills, programs that benefits all Americans throughout the united states. the republicans aim has always been to demolish those very bills, programs created by the Democrats. the republicans don't really care for the American people. they care for the all mighty $$$$$$$$$$ and those with the big $$$$$$$$$$$$ interest. I believe strongly the republicans have always embezzled, launder the American tax payer to their own pockets as to those with the big $$$$$$$$$$ bank accounts.

  • Just give every tax paying Citizens of the United States $1 billion dollars from the $2 trillion+ dollar stimulus bill, that's supposedly "to help small businesses, the economy, and those in need". Just give everyone a billion dollars and our economy will skyrocket. No recession, stocks will go up sky high and etc. And they'll still have over $1.5 trillion+ dollars left from the stimulus bill for their corperate billionaires and share holders.

  • To those Americans that don't make enough money to file a tax return (disabled, elderly, low income), you won't receive any of the stimulus money. Those that really could use it are being left out. Just another example of the saying, "The poor get poorer." The stimulus is only being handed out to those that file a tax return.

Lives with her mom at 28yro. She collects 10,000.00 annually as a tax refund. Now they’re giving people like that fat check? I think there are many that realize the world is effed up no matter how it goes and are checked out cause it’s not worth saving.

  • Very poorly thought out plan by Congress. A better plan would have been to double the amount of anyone who qualifies for unemployment benefits (UB for short) and double the maximum duration of that. For example, if before the virus, someone who qualified for UB would have gotten $300 a week for up to 26 weeks, instead give then $600 a week for up to 52 weeks. No $600 a week on top of their normal UB as that make them get more money then many people that are actually working. The "helicopter" money should have been $1500 per person tapering off $5 per $100 earned over $70K (per person), $750 per qualifying child. They have an error at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="135">2:15</a>. For $90K earned, the amount should be $450, not $400. Idiots don't even check their work. Lots of mistakes here. All those people in Washington, DC and an average Joe Shmoe like me can EASILY come up with a MUCH better plan than them.
