Biden Considering Dem Plan to Cut Even More of the Middle Class Out of Next Stimulus Checks


Biden is reportedly even claiming to be keeping his promise to the American people by offering $1,400 stimulus payments per person while remaining open to the idea of cutting out many middle-class citizens from eligibility for the full payments.

Prior relief packages sent stimulus checks to single people making $75,000 or less and married couples making $150,000 or less, then started phasing out for higher-earning Americans.

However, according to The Wall Street Journal, some senior Democrats are now considering sending the full $1,400 payments only to individuals making $50,000 or less and married couples making $100,000 or less. The payments would reportedly start phasing out for people who earn more than those thresholds, though the Biden administration has not publicly detailed the income cutoffs that it thinks should be implemented.

Many Republicans have voiced concerns over the exorbitant cost that Biden’s roughly $1.9 trillion proposal would bring with it.

Some Republicans are calling for $1,000 payments per person that would start to phase out for individuals earning $40,000 or more and married couples making $80,000 or more.
