Unbelievable. There are some Dems who want to lower the income eligibility for direct payments from $75,000 to $50,000 for individuals, and $150,000 to $100,000 for couples. In other words, working class people who got checks from Trump would not get them from Biden. Brilliant!— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) February 7, 2021
It is absurd that some Democrats think we should tell a worker making $52,000 a year that they are “too rich” and cannot get the full $2000 benefit we promised. It makes no sense to me, nor do I think it makes sense to the American people. pic.twitter.com/aksYr44pI7— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) February 7, 2021
Bernie raises a good point.
Does it make any political sense for Democrats to LOWER the eligibility of $1,400 checks from $75,000 to $50,000 to disqualify people who got checks from Trump? What sense does it make to disqualify the income bracket which swung the election and flipped the Rust Belt?
