Beyond the other ridiculousness in the House Democrats’ Coronavirus Relief Bill (giving hundreds of millions to the IRS, REALLY?!), it seems folks are less than impressed with their efforts on rebates/checks for Americans.
They are talking bigger amounts than Republicans but …
Where House Ds ended up on rebates/checks (sharing again w/ summary below):
— $1.5K per person (adults & children) immediately, up to $7.5K for family of 5;
— NO phase-in;
— Expected to be paid back in full or part by higher earners (+75K single/$150K joint) within 3 yrs pic.twitter.com/xFIsmGBnqP

For certain people, aka you evil richies, it’s a loan.
And a one-time payout which is far from what the Left wanted.
Guess how this is going over.

How is this supposed to help exactly?? A loan???

75k is nothing, and further all this does is burden them with debt. It’s not actually a relief package in any way shape or form

a one-time payment is really not even close to enough unfortunately

The Democratic Party needs to burn in a fire. They’re worse than the Republicans. A LOAN? REALLY?

Burn in a fire?

everything looks great, except for the loan part. perhaps make it paid back via taxes for people making over $500k. and it needs to repeat every month until this is over.

They say one time but lets be honest, this is only to tide the people over until we can see if anything develops before next month. Hopefully a cure is found before another round of checks are needed to be sent

And there’s a little rare sanity on the thread.

Have fun with that karma, Democrats.
