And with that Joe Biden says we get to the $2,000 promised by him and Democrats….
President Biden said during a call with House Democrats on Wednesday that he is committed to boosting stimulus checks to $2,000 by giving most Americans another $1,400 in direct payments in a new round of coronavirus relief.
However, Biden did crack the door open on tightening income requirements to determine which Americans are eligible to receive the checks. Under the relief package passed by Congress late last year, individuals making less than $75,000 and couples making less than $150,000 received the full $600 payment.
“We can’t walk away from an additional $1,400 in direct checks that we proposed because the people need them,” Biden told Democrats, according to a source on the call….
We can better target them,” he said, “but I’m not going to start my administration by breaking a promise to the American people.”….
And Trump’s name won’t be on the check…..
