If he's not your president should you still get the money? I know a few that have made that claim.

I can't help but think about the longer repercussions of spending what, a billion dollars? Where will that money come from; I mean really though, they'll just print it, but what will do that in a year, in 2 years?

Either way, I do appreciate what it will do for moral and a general good feeling for people.

Not a good solution. In fact, not a solution at all.
If it was not an election year, smarter people would prevail.

Wow your last couple of posts in different threads have been pretty bleak. You need a cookie and a hug.

It works, short term. Right now a little boost in morale would do the people good.

I'm sure I'll be above the threshold. Just like the retard's changing the payroll tax rate a couple years ago got me a huge tax bill.

I'd just use it to buy more ammo anyway. Wait... I already am buying more. I wish I had bought more when it was cheap. Oh well. Just need to buy a hawaiian shirt and I'm ready.

10000 min filed based on 2018 or 2019 which ever is last filed
99000 file single
199000 file jointly
These are the thresholds. I don’t know if it’s the same amount per or if it is less when you make closer to the top.

I bet we have to pay it back through our tax returns or something stupid.

I think it is funnier that politicians think this is enough to keep most of these people afloat. While I don't think that is the governments job, there were already people behind, now they are going to be so far behind they feel helpless and hell, $1200 barely feeds a family for a month. and $3500 for a family of 4 might get you a little while longer. When people get helpless after that runs out is when we get looting.

I wish the stupid fucktards in office could have kept the pork out and actually given it an honest try.

It's a stupid fucking idea using our future tax dollars to buy our votes. We, or our children and grandchildren will have to pay this back with interest.

Use the money to help end the pandemic and the economy will take care of itself.

It's almost like they are using it to end the pandemic by paying people to stay home.

To be honest, any check I get is just going in the bank so I can pay it back on next years taxes

That's my feeling. Give money to small businesses to retain employees, give money to citizens to stay home = Virus gone.

Sadly I think too many people are working and it will still spread. I have 2 friends who are machine tool repair men, they are still working. I don't see how this is an essential service. Another friend works for a company that makes components for truck accessories. (caps, tonneau covers, step bars, etc.) I didn't think this was essential either....

Providing I don't need the money to stay afloat and I don't think I would, we are getting a new washer / dryer. I'm currently working in the kitchen and heard this howling whining slamming sound the other day, I asked my wife WTF it was and she said the dryer. I asked her how long has it been doing that, "oh probably a couple years, but recently it's gotten a lot worse"
