Stimulus checks
« on: April 13, 2020, 07:25:32 PM »
Anybody get theirs yet? Ours was deposited today. The Ms. ordered a new Foodsaver vacuum sealer. The one I bought 12-15 years ago is getting flakey. I'm going to order a mortising attachment for my drill press as soon as I can find a battery for my calipers to measure the quill and make sure it will fit. The rest goes into savings. Fuck stimulating the economy.

Not yet. If it's the full $1200 (and it should be, with my income) I might spend a couple hundred on things I've been waiting on. But most of it is going into savings.
Black lives matter, feminism is good, religion is bullshit, and if you disagree with me on any of these points you are a fucking moron.

Pretty much all of mine will be going to savings and bills since it's due back at tax season.

I'm a non working college student at 30, so, that makes me dependent. I receive a big middle finger from the government.

I know people who have theirs. We're going to put ours on high-ish interest credit cards.

i was dragging my feet, on reducing debt, after going into retirement, with no income (haven't filed for SS yet).  With the pandemic, I am paying off all my debts, credit cards first.  After that my car loan.

A stimulus is money injected when the economy is running normally.  Juicing.  This is a fill-in, to replace money that would ordinarily be spent.  When the non-essential businesses open up, I will be happy to work on restoring income to the less advantaged.  I am tired of eating McDonalds ;-)

US Reps Tim Ryan (unrelated to the coronavirus-spreading Ryan) and Ro Khanna propose $2,000/month for at least 6 months.

Since a Democrat proposed it, I'm sure it'll immediately get shot down. Can't let the other tribe look good, now, can we?
