A $600 Stimulus Check Is Not Enough—Twitter Wants the U.S. Government to Know That
A $ 600 stimulus check may be done in the next few weeks if you meet the right criteria.
On Sunday, December 20, the GOP and the Democratic Party finally agreed on their non-partisan coronavirus aid package worth $ 900 billion, which after considerable back and forth includes a second stimulus check. After receiving $ 1,200 in the spring under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, many Americans were financially on their own as the country's COVID-19 and the associated rising unemployment rates.
Now the legislators have finally agreed on the second round of stimulus controls as part of this new aid package. However, the bill, due to be signed by the Senate, House of Representatives and President Donald Trump on December 21, cut the original check in half - and only if you make $ 75,000 or less.
Per CBS, individuals earning up to $ 75,000 will receive the full $ 600, while couples earning up to $ 150,000 will receive $ 1,200. The only increase since the CARES Act affects families with children. "Child addicts" will receive $ 600 each of the $ 500 originally allocated.
Twitter, of course, had a lot to say about this news, from serious disgust to sardonic comments. #LetThemEatCake was trending on the platform on December 21st.
Some people were upset by spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi's statements describing the $ 600 stimulus checks as "significant". One person tweeted. Another added, "Nancy Pelosi makes over $ 220,000 a year."
Others, however, defended Pelosi, saying the anger should be aimed at the GOP:
According to CNN, it will take at least two weeks for checks to appear in Americans' bank accounts.
