Andrew Yang lost the race, but won the argument.

Not quite.  Yang says, get a monthly check forever.  Trump says get a check one time, because of a pandemic.  The attempt to do guaranteed income in Finland failed, because even they are lazy assholes.

Basically an idea based on worry about automation eliminating all jobs.  This is what Marx taught, because steam engines would take over the world, and that energy and infrastructure would tend toward zero cost because of always increasing automation.  But this is a misunderstanding of thermodynamics.

Full Soviet Union = full failure
Half Soviet Union = half failure

China?  They transitioned from Mao poverty to Xi prosperity, because they have actually moved from primitivist communism of the 60s to mercantilist fascism of the 2020s.

We use Turbo Tax. Painless and thorough.
May have to do that this year.

Millions of people who use tax preparation services didn’t get their payments.  Customers who use tax preparation services such as H&R Block, TurboTax and Jackson Hewitt complained on Twitter and to The Post that they didn’t get their stimulus payments Wednesday.  IRS and Treasury officials said they are aware of these issues and are working to fix them.
This happened to me.  I filed using Turbo Tax.  They have my banking information, and Turbo Tax must act as a middle man.  Money gets transferred through them to the IRS, but the IRS doesn't have my routing and account numbers... or something.  I don't understand this, really.  As long as I eventually get my check I'm fine.

You agree to let Turbo Tax as your agent with the IRS. It was very quick for me and they asked questions I wouldn't have dreamed would be relevant. Added $350ish dollars to my return.

Primary Claimer: I have not authorized Turbo Tax to quote me.

Turbo Tax directed me to the IRS tool for claiming your stimulus check.  I then filled out information that I already gave to Turbo Tax.  The IRS site is not just for Turbo Tax users.  It's for anyone that got lost in the cracks.

But will it vote for you?  Will it choose Biden or Trump? ;-)

IRS automatically forwarded my check to the bank where my last tax refund went to.  Routing and account numbers are at the bottom of your checks.

I see I got a deposit of 1500.00 but I had some tax amendments this year as well so it may not have been that.
