Getting back to JD's topic, I don't quite understand why SS recipients are sharing in the stimulus. I was resigned to not getting one (for obvious reasons) because nothing changed for me or my wife so now it's found money, lucky us.
Still, though, it doesn't make sense. To me, anyway.
From everything that I have read and heard, this money is to serve 2 purposes.
1. Help those that are out of work, due to the current situation(they will also be able to file for unemployment(and if I read correctly will be getting an addition 600.00 dollars added to their unemployment amount, possibility for 4 months I think. Not sure if this actually made it into this bill, but it was talked about.
2. To stimulate the economy(you and I may now go out to buy something we have been holding off buying). I for one don't run up credit cards because I want something.
