My stimulus check menu for today …— Catturd ™ (@catturd2) December 21, 2020
Breakfast … one grit.
Lunch … water soup.
Dinner … leftover water soup.
After six months of congressional gridlock, you’re finally getting a means tested $600 stimulus check next week. And yes, that is too late to spend anything on Christmas.
“Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said a new round of economic stimulus checks will start being sent out next week — much faster than its previous batch of checks.
“People are going to see this money the beginning of next week,” he said in an interview Monday with CNBC. “Much needed relief — and just in time for the holidays.” …
It took the IRS about 15 days to begin distributing checks after the last coronavirus stimulus measure was signed into law in March, and months to ultimately put out more than 160 million payments. Having already done it once before this year, though, should make this round easier for the IRS.
The agreement announced Sunday by lawmakers offers payments of up to $600 per person, including children, for families earning up to $150,000 a year …”
BTW, you have the Republican Senate to thank for it. Specifically, Sen. Ron Johnson is responsible who got on his private jet and flew back to DC to ensure that no one got another $1,200 stimulus check.
Note: Next month, Sen. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are up for reelection in Georgia. I recommend not voting for either of them. The Republican majority in the Senate hasn’t been used for anything except to pass tax cuts for billionaires and to do wildly unpopular shit like this.
