Government Proposes $2000/mo To Americans

This from a Government that cannot deliver the $1200 Economic Impact Payment that many are still expecting. Now the left wants to increase the payment and those eligible. Politicians are severely out of touch with America and reality.

A group of Senate Democrats unveiled a proposal on Friday that would give most Americans a monthly payment of $2,000 until the coronavirus pandemic begins to fade.

Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Ed Markey, D-Mass., released the so-called Monthly Economic Support Act that would dramatically expand the one-time stimulus payments of $1,200 sent to most Americans as part of the massive relief package signed at the end of March.

Similar to a House bill proposed in mid-April, the senators called for $2,000 cash payments to every American who earns less than $120,000. it would expand to $4,000 for married couples and also provided an extra $2,000 for each child up to three.

The plan would be retroactive to March. Monthly payments would last until three months after the Health and Human Services Department has declared the public health emergency over.

It would bar debtors from collecting any of the money for repayments and would deliver the cash regardless of whether people have a Social Security number or filed taxes last year.

“The one-time $1,200 check that many Americans recently received is not nearly enough to pay the rent, put food on the table and make ends meet,” Sanders, a two-time Democratic presidential candidate, said in a statement. “During this unprecedented crisis, Congress has a responsibility to make sure that every working-class household in America receives a $2,000 emergency payment a month for each family member.”

The plan resembles a proposal introduced in mid-April by Democratic Reps. Ro Khanna and Tim Ryan. The Emergency Money for People Act would distribute $2,000 cash payments to every American age 16 or older who earns less than $130,000 annually. Families with children would receive $500 per child for up to three children.
