I am on Social Security so the pandemic really hasn't hurt me financially. With the $1200 stimulus I gave $300 to the food bank and while I hate the idea of so many people being food insecure, I can't help but wonder how many of these people in Indiana would help a food insecure gay man or woman if the tables were reversed. I will probably give a portion of it again to the food bank, but I haven't decided yet.

I earn above the threshold for receiving a stimulus check, but I wish it were more than $600. It's better than nothing, but what the stimulus bill was whittled down by the Republicans from $ 3.4 trillion to $2.2 trillion, to $1.4 trillion to now probably just under $1 trillion. The tax breaks they gave to the rich and the big corporations which supposedly was estimated to cost $1T will according to economist cost the US over $2.5T, but they didn't mind giving that away. Welfare for the rich and crumbs for the middle class and poor when they are struggling.

As usual, the government punishes those who succeed the most. There will be millions of people who will receive the $600 who have steady jobs and savings in the bank, so it’s a lie to say it is only going to people who “need” it. The government is inefficient and unfair in how it distributes benefits. Instead of $600 to everyone below the limit indiscriminately, it could have given handouts of $1200 or more only to people who are unemployed or who have lost their business due to Covid.
|by Anonymous||reply 170||12/21/2020|
Unemployed are getting way more than $600. For those who qualify it is $300/wk plus whatever they receive in weekly UI benefits times 11 weeks. At minimum for many that is bit over four thousand dollars.
One reason Pelsoi et al pushed for $600 was because many who are unemployed do not get benefits (read illegal aliens). This time Pelosi and Schumer got republicans to agree to allow more immigrants to get stimulus checks. Long as one married partner is a US citizen the couple can get $600 x 2, plus each minor child who as a SSN also will receive money.
Will credit it wasn't best of things, but was best that was going to happen as this congress limps towards its closure. Only reason why Mitch McConnell moved at all was he is nervously eyeing next month's runoff elections in Georgia.

Think some of you are missing the larger picture. Pelosi and Schumer in their weakened state (democrats didn't have their Blue Wave in November's elections), had to deal with conditions on political ground as it were.
Mitch McConnell and conservative republicans insisted on keeping this stimulus bill even lower than one trillion (USD) they were floating before November, so with only $900 or so billion to play around with something had to give.
No, the stimulus checks of $600 aren't great, but then again since large numbers of you seem not to need it anyway.....
But OTOH all parts of unemployment were extended including coverage for gig workers/self-employed. True they're only getting $300 extra per week instead of $600, but some other good bits were added. Those who have both W-2 and 1099 income may qualify for an additional $100 on top of $300.
As it relates to this group many of our sisters and brothers in performing arts/entertainment got hit last time with UI because they had just that, both income from W-2 and side gigs, sadly many states calculated their UI bennies using the lower self-employed number so they got less. No, it's not huge, but that extra $400 on top of regular UI will help many of those who actually need the money.
There is also a nice pot of money earmarked to performing arts, comedy and other entertainment venues. All have been hit badly with people out of work for almost a year now in many instances.

That is false. The oldest Baby Boomer was only 34 when Reagan was elected. The majority of Reagan’s voters in 1980 were over the age of 35, according to the exit poll.

There’s no reason anyone without a SERIOUS physical or intellectual disability is making under $150,000/year in the US. If you are, that is by choice. Yes, bad things happen, but if you’ve been saving and preparing for a disaster, you wouldn’t need those $600.

I turned on the troll when some queen had the audacity the dare me to explain how to turn the stimulus payments into $5,000 in 5 years, calling me an arrogant and then ***correcting*** me by positing I should have stated that goal should take 20 years!!!!! LOL. Then, when confronted with actual evidence of how even in 2020 alone one could have more than doubled the stimulus payments , went off the rails. Further, when another poster explained Bitcoin, said poster or someone just as idiotic, had the stupidity to argue Bitcoin 2012 was the same as Bitcoin 2016 (when it wasn't) and Bitcoin 2020 has gone through the roof!
How can you not troll such financially-illiterate (agreed, by choice) queens who populate these stimulus threads? Solutions are literally presented to them and all they have to offer are "Fuck off and go to Central America, Grandpa and Cunt!!!"

Stimulus bill passed earlier this week, That Orange Man thus far has not signed it so things are stuck in a holding pattern.
DT did veto defense bill setting up major drama for early next week when Congress will decide if it will (or can) override.
If Mitch McConnell and his core conservative republicans in senate didn't budge previously on much lower amounts of UI money, what makes you think they are going to blink now?
Unlike DT Mitch McConnell won his reelection bid, and thus lives to fight another day in January. Whereas the Idiot in Chief will be gone in a little under four weeks.
If worse comes to worse nothing will get done until Biden arrives after 20th January. At that time Congress will have to come up with another new bill, or try to get the previous one passed. Good thing about this is Biden can move to have much of the excess like DT's restoration of three martini lunch deduction scrapped.
Yes, people will lose out of four or more weeks of UI, but that can easily be compensated by making payments retroactive to 2 January 2021.

Also even if stimulus bill was passed early this week it would be likely late January or into February before states began sending out UI payments to eligible claimants.
DOL has to write rules and guidance that is sent down to states. State departments of labor have to interpret those rules and guidance and then program their often ancient computers for another new unemployment program. In most states thanks to those old computer systems when a program ends, it is over. They simply cannot continue say giving people who were still getting federal UI payments as of 26 December whatever the new bill entitles them to receive.
The stimulus checks are another matter, but Munchin stated earliest those could go out is by middle of January, which is several days before he's out of a job. Yellen or whoever is acting head of Treasury would be tasked with rolling out program.

Again think real issue GOP and some others have with handing out huge stimulus checks is not everyone is hurting financially. In fact a good number aren't just doing fine, but thriving.
All my friends in nursing for instance are making money hand over fist. OTOH my IT friends and some others are working from home (or only going in to office a few times a month at this rate), still making same money and also enjoying all this new found freedom and time off.
Do understand however there isn't an easy way to square that circle; unless you start making every household earning < $80k per year ($160 for married couples) file some sort of need statement, some are going to get money that is surplus to requirements.
We do know from economic reports that large numbers of people regardless of "need" went out and spent all that stimulus money, so in the end that is really what matters. Be it rent, credit card debt, or a new something from Gucci, it is all money pumped back into economy.

R316, you don’t seem to understand why governments do stimulus checks (hint: look at the first word). This is to keep the economy moving so that we still have an economy when the pandemic eases. It would be nice to target the money, but more important to get it out there. People at these income levels tend to spend right away, just like people on unemployment. That’s the point of the checks, even if helping those in need is a wanted feature.

I can’t imagine anyone on this forum actually needing $600. Am I that out of touch? I just envision us as a higher class of intelligent people that would never need such a paltry amount of cash. It’s a silly political distraction from the government. I would be so embarrassed to be asking for any amount of a handout - whether it be $600 or $2000. It means admitting failure if you need it.

Thanks, R408. what you described is exactly what I intend to do. R405, you didn't mention your pandemic concern in your post.

Yeah, good luck with that steak house, hope they are still open when the pandemic is over. Our local one is having a public meltdown and is threatening to close permanently if this thing isn't over by March. They seem like greedy fucker. They are in the top 3 most expensive restaurants in the city, they have been in the same low rent location for 2 decades and during the pandemic when outside seating was allowed, they pushed it from 10 to 60 tables half way down the block. They should not be hurting for money. They should have millions of dollars in the bank by now. A typical dinner for two is never less than $250 and that's without wine or alcohol. I feel sorry for the staff, but the owners sound like greedy ass holes. Oh and did I mention they wont do take out?

R412 - All of our restaurants here in Houston are open. I don’t do takeout so I dine in and it’s been wonderful. Because of the lowered customer volume, I get great service, no waiting, and excellent food quality. For me, it’s silly to pay restaurant prices for their takeout. Eating in the restaurant dining room is the only way to fully enjoy the meal, direct from the chef.
