Do you qualify for a stimulus check
in Senate’s coronavirus response bill?

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 3/26/2020 4:21:29 AM

One of the cornerstones of the Senate coronavirus stimulus package is the direct payment of money from the federal government to American individuals and families. In the middle of the bill's hundreds of pages are details regarding exactly who can expect to receive money and how much they can expect. Here is a breakdown. Who is eligible? The bill makes clear that everyone is eligible except for nonresident aliens and those who can be used as the basis for deductions for another person. "Seniors, veterans, the unemployed and low-income Americans would be eligible too," Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said Wednesday.

We NEVER should have succumbed to this virus hysteria and shut the country down! Science is nice, but the national and the global NUMBERS simply do not come anywhere near justifying such concern as this ... not even close!

FTA: "Payments, according to the bill, will be made “as rapidly as possible” and no later than Dec. 31, 2020." I don't agree with the stimulus bill, but I have to note that, here again, we have our government moving at the speed of an injured snail. For people who lost their jobs, waiting until the end of the year is not going to be much help.

the potential for fraud is extremely high. I used to watch Judge Judy, and she sometimes handled cases where a young single woman without income was, and still is, eligible for a child tax credit. And in some of judge Judy's cases, the young woman would barter away that tax credit, allowing a man or woman to claim it, and then sue because she didn't get exactly what she wanted. The fraud associated with tax credits is too easy.

After the election recount, Russian collusion, Impeachment debacle, I came up with a list of adjectives for Democrats and liberals. It is a list that keeps having adjectives added to it. My support for Donald Trump increased as I realized what the Democrats, liberals and Never Trumpers were trying to do. They haven't stopped even with this virus. Deceptive is another word I am adding to my list. My support for Donald Trump has increased even more. It doesn't matter whether I agree with the stimulus or not. He is a person that cares for this country, the people who live in it and he also cares for other countries because of his compassion as a human being. I would like to find out how many Presidents donated their salary? President Trump needs our support more than ever and we need to put ourselves aside and realize what he is trying to do. I don't envy his position because he is between a rock and a hard place. I think he is handling it as best as he can.

I posted this before but I still stand behind it: "Obviously, not a popular position. The PC approach dictates an attitude that this Chinese virus is the worst evah and everything must be done to stop the potential for millions of deaths. The PC approach says, 'Shut down the economy so as to save as close to 100% of the people as possible.' But, if the goal is the saving of lives, who is to say at this point whether more lives won't be lost in the long run as a result of the upcoming world-wide economic calamity that we are choosing -- choosing -- to bestow upon ourselves. Time will tell, but misery is misery. Millions of deaths now or billions living in economic devastation later. We will see which results in the most deaths overall." While getting this OPM (other people's money) is nice and easy to spend, this nation already went down this path. Remember the $1800 checks we received under W. Bush after 9/11? I do. Later, they determined it had no effect on the USA economy as we all went out and upgraded our electronics which were all made in China. This stimulus won't work to boost the USA economy either. What it will do is to get people hooked on "free" money, and the belief in socialism via quantitative easing that AOC has been touting. IMHO, the Republican party, small-government capitalism, and the old American Way is dead with the arrival of these checks.

As a mathematician, please allow me to explain exactly how this will work: 1) By December 31, 2020, you will receive a check for $1,200. 2) On April 15, 2021, you will need to come up with an extra $2,400 on your federal taxes in order to pay back not only the check you got but that at least one other person got but who can't/won't pay it back. You're welcome.

Millions and millions of checks going out, they all look the same, many people desperate . . . What's to stop thieves--including thieves in the USPS--from diverting checks to themselves? And those who don't get the checks they are expecting . . . What recourse will they have?

If I get a check I'm definitely going to cash it and give it to my daughter. She works in a Dental office. It was closed down by the state of IL. and she has been without a paycheck all this time. Yes, she filed for unemployment, but so far hasn't seen a check. It looks like the Government checks won't go out anytime soon either, so she needs help. People like her need to pay their rent, buy groceries and pay other Bills. Yes, she has some savings, but I hope she won't have to dig into it. I will make sure she doesn't!

#10, I totally agree. I have run up against of ignorant lefties who think Trump is "killing us all" by wanting to reopen the businesses. Yhey are cheering the governors for shutting everything down....because I "they care" (barf!) Still I try to calmly explain the importance of getting everything going again and how billions will suffer if we don't do it soon. They act like this is the black plague...I tell them it's not. I also tell them that giving up their freedom for a small amount of perceived safety is telling the tyrants they are ready to surrender and be ruled (not governed). Is that what they really esnt?

My kind of "stimulus" is cutting my taxes. President Trump and Congress must have forgotten what started the Tea Party during the sub-prime mortgage crisis with the banks... yes, it was the bail-out that started it all. Now we have a bail-out, but for all who work for a living. Some need a tax cut more than handout that's designed to raise our taxes, not for just one year, but for every year to come. This is BAD. Please Veto this garbage and send it back to Congress with red ink spilled all over it.

$2T is chilling. Adds to the debt and the opportunity to steal and misplace it knows no bounds. The President shouldn't sign this. Dole money out to people who ask for help and determine how they help the people and economy. The Kennedy Center was mentioned in the bill. For what? This whole 2T is not good and this 'summer cold' hoax should have never shut down our great nation. This entire thing is overkill just like the hoarders of toilet paper there's no use in it.

Providing a method to turn this Porculus down would be nice. Giving it away would not prevent one from receiving a 1099 for it at the end of the year, it doesn't matter if you tear it up or give it away. How is this any different than the $3 Trillion stimulus money that was stolen by Obama to award HIS people and HIS pet causes? The money given to Katrina "victims" so they could buy luxury items in the high end stores in Atlanta? Not everybody needs this money, not even close. Anybody who has his life together can weather a month to six weeks of unemployment or business income. If not, you are living too close to the edge. If this has to happen, people should be required to simply apply for it. Even without Pelosi's obscene pork items, this plan smells too much like just another democrat theft of the taxpayers for the benefit of the bottom feeders.

If you don't need it, you can return it to the Treasury with the instruction to use it to reduce the deficit, or give it to a charity that is probably on the ropes because of this panic.

My young children and I all qualify to pay the increased taxes for the rest of our lives to pay this money back. The sick irony is that the interest will be more than the stimulus check, and that interest will be paid to the same Chinese Communists that gave us the virus. No matter how we play, we lose.

Some people will buy toilet paper! Remember when WBush gave $200 after 9 11 to attempt to get economy back. Did that work!The purpose is for people to spend the $$ to help bring the economy back.I suggest the people making Big $$$$ because of this virus crisis share their wealth with the companies suffering. Some companies are profiting Big Time...grocery stores, Walmart, drug stores, hospital suppliers, liquor stores, trucking, paper supplies...while others suffer....restaurants, nail & beauty salons, movie theaters, entertainment, sports...

America’s Favorite Movie 19 replies

For more than a decade, readers volunteering their ratings on the movie site IMDb have declared The Shawshank Redemption (1994) their favorite film of all time. (Number two is The Godfather). Unlike the unholy tablets that are the box office charts, which are strongly linked to marketing budgets and show a preference for regurgitated storylines, and unlike the Oscars, which reflect the preferences of an exclusive coterie of largely like-minded insiders at a single moment in time, the IMDb survey provides an excellent, constantly updated, democratic overview of which movies endure in the popular imagination over time. Shawshank has motivated more than two million people to log their ratings.

President Trump during coronavirus crisis

For decades, Americans have rallied behind their president in time of crisis, so it’s no mystery that President Trump’s approval ratings are up. Except, that is, to anti-Trump obsessives — including much of the media. “Who Are the Voters Behind Trump’s Higher Approval Rating?” a New York Times headline asked last week. That is: Who could possibly think he’s doing a good job — when no one at the Times does? The paper notes that Trump’s positives, at 49 percent, are “as high as ever,” with independents and even some Democrats driving the numbers up.

If the European Union now finds itself in “mortal danger,” it’s only because it’s faced its first truly mortal threat. The Washington Post reports that European leaders have begun to warn that unilateral actions by its members — most recently Hungary but also core members France and Germany — will undo their decades-long experiment in continental unity. The raising of borders and the imposition of trade barriers in the coronavirus pandemic has all but sidelined Brussels in the crisis, and there’s little indication that EU members are interested in anything but their own domestic political standing.

One persistent prediction arising from our pandemic house arrest is that we’ll have a baby boom in nine months. There are good reasons to doubt this. Sure, people are going to do things to pass the time. Makin’ whoopee is one of those things and, all things being equal, more sex means more babies. We should see a slight uptick in births from this national downtime. Yet the increase in babies will likely be a slight uptick only. Before coronavirus measures cratered the U.S. economy, Americans were doing extraordinarily well. The stock market was going gangbusters. We were about as close to full employment is it is possible to get.

Never look a gift horse in the mouth, they say, though when Mayor Bill de Blasio is on hand, the other end of the animal is usually involved. Gotham’s chief executive this week might have accepted with some grace an offer of assistance from a crisis-tested, and devoutly Christian, emergency-relief organization — but he gave it the fisheye instead. It seems that in Blasville, evangelical Christians armed with tons of the sophisticated medical equipment so sorely lacking in the city right now, plus the expertise to use it, are presumptively suspect. And are perhaps to be expelled.

"Our home was still on fire when our neighbors first came over and offered shoes and coats," Marilyn Villegas, a service-connected disabled veteran, told Fox News.

The decision of American Navy to relieve the captain who warned publicly of coronavirus on his nuclear-powered aircraft carrier strikes us as the right move.

Racial data on coronavirus will be critical to ensuring an equitable and just response to this crisis across the board,” she wrote in a tweet, referencing an article from the Atlantic. “But we don’t have that data—yet,” she added:

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) reacted to the firing of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson by stating President Trump is “retaliating against people that are on his enemies list and doing it in the dead of night” as people are dying. Schiff stated, “We’re in the middle of a pandemic, and what is this president doing, as thousands of people are dying? He is retaliating against people that are on his enemies list and doing it in the dead of night. This is just another showing of the character or the lack of character of this president.

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation is putting increased scrutiny on former CIA Director John Brennan, searching for any undue influence he may have had during 2017’s intelligence community assessment of Russian interference. Durham, selected by Attorney General William Barr last year to lead this inquiry, drove to Washington, D.C., in March to ensure the investigation stayed on track during the coronavirus outbreak. The top Connecticut federal prosecutor is looking into highly sensitive issues, including whether Brennan took politicized actions to pressure the rest of the intelligence community to match his conclusions about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s motivations, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.

In a bigoted effort to mislead its readers and demonize the American South, the far-left New York Times on Thursday manufactured a wildly misleading coronavirus map. Using a desperately sweaty piece of reverse-engineering to make Southerners (and I’m a proud one, Yeeehaawwww) look as irresponsible as possible, the Times — a fake news outlet that hires racists, spreads deliberate misinformation, and has already smeared Christians as the cause of a coronavirus outbreak that’s currently hitting mostly secular, urban areas like New York — published a steaming pile of fake news. “Where America Didn’t Stay Home Even as the Virus Spread” is the name of the piece

On Friday, a reporter from Telemundo asked California's Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom what emergency relief he would be providing for illegal aliens amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. "No state in America does more to help residents regardless of their immigration status," the governor rightly assured the reporter. Newsom first bragged about the state's healthcare coverage for illegal aliens before explaining how his administration is now helping illegal alien small business owners obtain grants while a large part of the American economy remains shut down.

After the 9/11 terrorist attack, Rudy Giuliani’s calm presence was an inspiration to the entire nation. Today, New York is a different kind of ground zero, and it has a very different kind of leadership — which is to say, the weak and woefully inadequate kind. To say that Mayor Bill de Blasio has done a poor job under pressure is to understate the case. In the simpler times of 2014, New Yorkers had the luxury of chuckling at his weak leadership, as when he killed a defenseless groundhog at a public event. But that he has proven himself such a clown amid a grave crisis,
