    the government for not sending out checks.
    With all the pork and other things added to these bills, I just as soon not see them passed.

    I don’t want anything from the government unless it is to be left alone.

    We as a country are weak and small minded and that is what you get by paying people to have children that have no business having children.

    If I am not mistaken a lot of the pork was taken out. I am sure there is a hell of a lot left though. I can understand trying to help out some of the small businesses but much more then that no thank you. Small business provide a hell of a lot of jobs.

    I did read one article today that said the money would be sent as soon as possible, but sometime before 12/31/20.

    It did mention it would actually be direct deposits based on what was used for you tax return. If you’ve already filed this year, that income will be used...otherwise they’ll use last year’s return (to determine eligibility).

    Wonder how much money will be sent to the fraudster bank accounts. Treasury Secy. Mnuchin said that many states have unemployment benefit systems that are 30 years old and not easy to access and update so by adding $600 to the weekly benefit was the easiest way to get all who need the money quickly.
