Can a vote be taken on a new stimulus check on 1 February?
The House of Representatives won’t be back in session until Feb. 1, but plans are to introduce a bill shortly thereafter.
“We’ll be doing our committee work next week so we’re all set to go to the floor when we get back,” house speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a press conference on Thursday.
It is not clear whether this will be a sweeping stimulus package as suggested by Biden, or a smaller, patchy bill targeting a third stimulus control and, as reported by Punchbowl News, a new outlet created from former Politico journalists, reporting on Capitol Hill activities.
Are the checks $ 1,400 or $ 2,000? Can that change depending on who you are?
Biden’s incentive plan requires the next check to be up to $ 1,400 per eligible adult – not the $ 2,000 some originally expected. The idea is that this third check “raises” the maximum of $ 600, as defined in the second incentive check, to $ 2,000 once you combine the totals per person.
Biden said at a Jan. 14 press conference that “we will finish the work to get $ 2,000 in cash for the people who need it most.”
“Even for people who have kept their jobs, getting this check is very important,” added Biden, noting that workers who are concerned about job security or falling ill would get peace of mind and the money immediately on food and drink. could spend rent. “$ 2,000 goes a long way to ease that pain.”
We can’t say for sure why Biden chose $ 1,400 as the maximum instead of $ 2,000, but there has been opposition to a $ 2,000 incentive payment (more below). Combined with the second $ 600 check going out, a maximum of $ 2,000 would make a total of $ 2,600 per person, disregarding dependents. If Biden tries to keep the proposal below $ 2 trillion, a bigger stimulus check could do his thingover the threshold.
One question that concerns people is whether, if the qualifications were expanded to new groups of people not included in the first round, the new recipients could get the full $ 2,000 amount.
How can qualifications of stimulus checks differ?
Biden proposes two changes that are popular among Democratic lawmakers. The first would expand qualifications to, including more than 10 million adult dependents, such as college students, and children of all ages with disabilities. This would cover 13.5 million more people, according to the People’s Policy Project.
The second change to qualify includes “all mixed status households” (PDF) according to Biden’s proposal. The term mixed-status household refers to households with one or more people who are not US citizens, for example, if the parents are not US citizens, but their children, who were born in the US. The second stimulus controls.
How soon would the IRS be able to send the checks and would there be a different deadline?
The IRS and the Treasury Department are moving at lightning speed, starting within days of being signed by Trump . But they had to. The language of the invoice only offered a 17-day window to send the checks before the deadline imposed. There were , and now will have to . (Yes, , also.)
It’s too early to say if the IRS would automatically send a third check to the recipients, as they had done with the, or if the money would be packed in one . or something. We go through more possible scenarios for the .
How would the third stimulus check affect the economy?
The idea of oneeither by paying for basic necessities such as rent and food, or by putting it back into the economy in other ways, such as buying goods and services. Some have suggested that people who save their incentive payments don’t use the checks as intended, but the money is , with about how it is stored or used.
Stimulation accounts are clearly expensive and create government debt. If Biden’s proposal remains unchanged, it would cost.
“Neither the president-elect nor I are proposing this aid package without appreciating the country’s indebtedness,” said Janet Yellen, Biden’s choice of finance minister, CNN and others reported Jan. 18. “But right now, with interest rates hitting historic lows, the smartest thing we can do is act big.”
What are the biggest obstacles to a third stimulus check?
There is already a pushback from Democrats in more ways than one. Withopposition from just one Democratic senator could sink the party’s hopes of a major third stimulus check.
“$ 2,000 means $ 2,000. $ 2,000 doesn’t mean $ 1,400,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told The Washington Post on Jan. 14, referring to Biden’s earlier and repeated commitment to a $ 2,000 incentive check.
At the other end of the spectrum, Senator Joe Manchin, a centrist Democrat from West Virginia, repeatedly expressed concern about the cost of a third stimulus check, suggesting that the financial aid could be better targeted at those who need the money the most .
“How can the money we invest now best help us get jobs back and get people into work? And I can’t tell you that sending a new cash register will do that to someone whoManchin said on Jan. 8, later reportedly saying he was “open” to hearing Biden’s case for a bigger stimulus check, but prioritizing .
Many Republicans are expected to object to a new expensive stimulus package, especially one that could do more. With a new Schumer is counting on pushing the legislation through, especially now that Vice President Kamala Harris will act as a tiebreaker.
There are several ways that a $ 1,400 check can make more money for families
A higher maximum total per person is the obvious way your household would receive more money from a third check than the second, but there’s more to it. Because the upper limit for the, with an extra , the route , more people hit the income threshold for receiving a second payment, which means they will all the way.
