    Nor am I. That is why I am interested what the folks who are will do with theirs.

    Originally, they said the income cap for singles would be $75,000.  Yesterday, I saw something that said everyone would get it, but I doubt that's true.  In the unlikely event I am eligible, I will send it to City Harvest or some other worthy charity stepping up during this difficult period.

    Given the cap numbers I’ve seen, I won’t qualify and that’s fine. I personally don’t need the money. But it matters that the people who do need it, get it, and then do the right things with it.

    Absolutely and that's why I think Pelosi was right to hold up the bill for more oversight of corporate welfare.

    She held it up for the Green New Deal, Planned Parenthood money, interfering with elections, funding for Kennedy Center, etc.   The oversite on the loans was already in it.

    Benefits will phase out starting at $75,000 in income.

    Singles earning more than $99,000 in 2019 will not receive any check.

    As I thought, so I will be ineligible.
