Who could be left out of the third $1,400 stimulus check
Congressmen must establish a new line on what is the limit to receive one hundred percent of the next stimulus check, after the president Joe Biden will pressure them to approve it, though go “directed”.
Currently, the rules state that those earning up to $75,000 a year and married couples earning less than $150,000 a year receive the full amounts. That would no longer be the same.
It is early to anticipate how many people would be left out of the aid plan against COVID-19but both President Biden and congressmen talk about the amount of one hundred percent, since as the maximum income is exceeded, the amount of aid is reduced until it reaches zero.
“There’s a legitimate reason for people to say, ‘Do you have the lines drawn the right way? Should it (the check) go to someone who makes more than X dollars or why?’”acknowledged the president at a press conference.
What happened to other checks
For the $1,200 check under the CARES Act, those earning $100,000 a year per person or couples with incomes up to $200,000 a year received some amount.
In the case of the $600 aid, those ranges went down, due to calculations made by the IRS, so those earning $87,000 a year no longer received aid.
“I am open to negotiating those things. That’s all. I chose it (the amount) because I thought it was rational, reasonable, and had overwhelming bipartisan support in the House when it passed. But all of this is a moving target,” the president emphasized.
The Democrat’s position arises after a meeting between senators from both parties and White House officials, where the congressmen expressed their doubts about the destination of the money and pointed out that the direct check should be for those who need it most.
“I prefer these things to be bipartisan because I’m trying to build some consensus and get, how can I put it, the poison out of it all.”Biden said.
This week the legislators will work on the proposals and it is expected that in a maximum of two weeks there will be an approval plan in both chambers, once the concerns of both benches have been addressed.
