Democrats’ proposal to lower the income cap for the third round of stimulus checks could prevent nearly 12 million adults from receiving them, a new analysis shows. President Biden has agreed to limit eligibility for the $1,400 coronavirus relief payments so that people earning more than $80,000 a year would not get one.Individuals making up to $75,000 annually would still receive the full amount under the proposal pushed by moderate Democratic senators, while the payments would shrink for those earning between $75,000 and $80,000.About 200 million adults would receive stimulus checks under the new Senate plan,

Say it ain't so! ONLY 200 million people will receive $1,400. Horror: 12 million adults will lose out. I, like millions of other folks, neither deserve nor need another $1,400 from the federal government. It's treated like play money. However I will not give it back. Why should I? Millions of folks would have to give it back to make one bit of difference.

I haven't lost a single days work since this whole sorry episode started. I have had my income cut by a good 30% due to the loss of overtime. That said, I didn't need the first, second and I don't need a third. To be eligible, one should have to be unemployed or otherwise negatively affected by the codid lockdowns. If your able to pay your bills, you don't need a check. This is about the only thing the ruling junta has come up with that I'm even partially in agreement with. Were I making the decisions, the cutoff would be for anyone holding a full time job.

Based on income from what year? If I made over the limit one year and no longer qualify but I am laid off now (due to Government imposed shut-downs), I still could use the stimulus check today.

#4, it's based on whatever your last filing was. If you made $200K in 2019 and none in 2020 (and therefore didn't file), it looks at your last filing to make the determination. You can fight that after the fact, but that's what decides the automatic mailings; most recent filing 2019 or later.

80K $$ amount should not be the criterion. Many people in that category may also be employed. Target those who lost jobs and give them the checks.

There should be no caps. Only 10% of the bailout bill is going to the American public so make the cuts elsewhere. Don't punish those who were lucky enough to keep their jobs during this government created economic crisis.

They have to make cuts to save money. There is only 1,9 Trillion in that stimulus and the taxpayers will only get 10% of that, if they can cut that 10% down to 8 or 9% they will have more money for their friends.

The wimpy Republicans did a great job suggesting that the Democrats “target” those stimulus payouts so that 12 million Americans and a large number of reliable Republican voters including a big number of small business owners and operators will no longer be eligible for those stimulus payouts. Remember the base document that is used to determine incomes for stimulus payments are the 2019 federal tax returns that were filed before April 16, 2020 when people in the USA were just becoming aware that the Chinese COVID-19 virus was invading the USA and infecting Americans in a major way. So when you look at an individual income shown on a 2019 tax return it will not show all the income that ordinary people and small business owners lost during 2020 because of the COVID shutdowns and other adverse situations. No doubt Biden and the Democrats jumped on that Republican proposal, and will now spread that reallocated money going to feed the needs of a lot of leftist Democrat entities and supporters including illegal aliens, with some of that money being even sent to China, with the bottom line cost of 1.9 Trillion dollars for that Democrat stimulus bill remaining the same. And some still wonder why the wimpy Republicans are called the Stupid Party.

After having lived together through the lost year of 2020-21, many of my long-held beliefs regarding this country have sadly slipped away. Like many of us, when the lockdowns first began, I believed the directives were basically suggestions from the government that, for our own protection, we needed to close everything down for 15 days. Let’s face it, nearly everyone was scared out of their minds listening to the “experts” saying this would probably kill millions of Americans in 2020, and we complied out of duty and obligation to other citizens and our families. We were only doing what seemed prudent. We were sure we would come out

The California Department of Education (CDE) is set to vote on a new ethnic studies curriculum that reportedly calls for the “decolonization” of society in America and encourages students to chant to the Aztec god of human sacrifice.The curriculum will focus on “social consciousness” and cultures that have allegedly not gotten enough attention in textbooks. That would include “African American, Chicana/o/x and Latina/o/x, Native American, and Asian American and Pacific Islander studies,” according to the CDE. “By affirming the identities and contributions of marginalized groups in our society, ethnic studies helps students see themselves and each other as part of the narrative of the United States,” the overview states.

Near the end of her marriage to Andrew Cuomo, Kerry Kennedy slept in a locked bathroom to protect herself, according to a biographer who took a close look at Gov.

They were married from 1990 to 2005, and have three daughters.The accusations fit with a pattern of brutal bullying and demeaning treatment of women raised in recent weeks that have left Cuomo facing widespread calls to resign,

Experts have said fears of a 'fourth wave' hitting the US may have been overblown as Florida continues to record falling coronavirus cases and deaths despite having more cases of the UK's super-COVID variant than any other state. CDC data shows a fifth of all US cases of the more highly contagious and more deadly B.1.1.7 strain first detected in the south of England have come from the Sunshine State.In total, Florida has recorded 690 cases, dwarfing much of the rest of the US where 44 of all 50 states have recorded fewer than 100 cases. The next highest state Michigan has 563 followed by Colorado with 267.

Democrats are unyielding in their quest for a permissive society where there is little if any personal responsibility.Nowhere is this more apparent than their preferred policies on the killing of unborn babies, and amid the current marijuana craze liberal politicians are borrowing from that campaign to mainstream weed.Just as Democrats pursued laws allowing minors to have an abortion without telling their parents, New Jersey has legalized the consumption of marijuana, in all its forms, on private property and enacted a law restricting law enforcement from notifying the parents of minors who are caught with possession of weed or alcohol.

New York—For years, researchers have said a lack of diversity in Hollywood films doesn't just poorly reflect demographics, it's bad business. A new study by the consulting firm McKinsey & Company estimates just how much Hollywood is leaving on the table: $10 billion.
