Sorry, Americans — There’s No $2,000 Stimulus Check Coming

Last week, we pointed to efforts by members of Congress to include multiple $2,000 stimulus checks to Americans — including musicians and laid-off industry workers — to make ends meet.  Unfortunately, those efforts have been dashed.

Instead, Americans will have to make do with a single $1,200 stimulus check, which most view as inadequate to pay bills for more than a few weeks (at most).  According to details emerging this week, members of the U.S. Senate have decided against additional individual stimulus checks, despite forwarding a near-$500 billion stimulus supplement for approval to the House of Representatives.

Just yesterday, the Senate approved a $484 billion supplement to its earlier, $2 trillion-plus Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. But that supplement is mostly focused on replenishing the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), while a portion is allocated for hospitals and the purchase of coronavirus testing kits.

Initially, the $2,000 booster check was proposed by Democratic Representative Tim Ryan of Ohio, alongside California Representative Ro Khanna, also a Democrat.

“A one-time, $1,200 dollar check isn’t going to cut it,” Khanna stated last week. “Americans need sustained cash infusions for the duration of this crisis in order to come out on the other side alive, healthy, and ready to get back to work.”

As part of their ‘Emergency Money for the People Act,’ both Khanna and Ryan favored more than just a single, $2,000 stimulus check payment.  Instead, they proposed a monthly payout of that amount, until the economy could regain its footing.  The stimulus check payouts would be guaranteed for 6 months, which would hopefully offer enough time for people to get back on their feet while still paying rent, bills, and buying necessities like groceries.

Other legislators also called for additional payments to individual Americans, without success.

Of the $484 billion, $320 billion has been earmarked for the PPP, with another $60 billion for Small Business Association (SBA) emergency loans.

The Paycheck Protection Program aims to help businesses struggle through the next few months by issuing forgivable loans equal to 2.5 times the average monthly payroll costs. That sounded good in principle, though the program was quickly depleted as businesses rushed to claim the initial $349 billion funding tranche.

Most were left hanging by mega-banks like Bank of America and Wells Fargo, who reluctantly started processing loans on behalf of the U.S. Government but only sporadically alerted clients of their loan statuses. Even worse, data now shows that roughly 70% of the loan disbursements went to large, publicly-traded corporations like Shake Shack (NYSE: SHAK), with larger banks favoring the bigger loans to ramp up processing fees.

Initially, the PPP was earmarked for businesses with under 500 employees as well as independent contractors and sole proprietorships. Both the spirit and intent of the bill were seemingly clear. But thanks to a loophole inserted by larger restaurant chains and allowed by Congress, individual franchisees were allowed to apply independently, a structure that quickly soaked up available funds and left smaller businesses and single-person entities high-and-dry.

That undoubtedly locked out a lot of smaller music companies, including publishing houses, touring companies, festivals, and touring outfits built around successful live acts.

The latter includes Zac Brown, who was forced to lay off nearly all of this touring staff because of grounded shows and scant government assistance.

“I’m pretty ashamed of how our leadership has handled all of this, I’m pretty ashamed of a lot of things,” Brown stated after announcing the mass-layoffs. “We can’t rely on our government to tell our people what they need to do. You can read between the lines, you can read all the articles of this happening from all around the world, and we’re less protected than a lot of those countries. Because no one can tell us what to do.”

Initial failures aside, there’s still some hope left for smaller companies, touring musicians, and independent contractors.

Already, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase, and others are facing aggressive lawsuits for unfairly prioritizing mega-clients. Their behavior might not be illegal, though ethically, the situation could bode poorly for the larger banks. Part of the reason is that smaller banks managed to secure PPP loans for many of their clients, thanks to a greater commitment to smaller businesses and deeper experience working with the Small Business Association (SBA).

In the interim, larger banks could use the second tranche to clean up their acts.  That could cool the legal threats, while also staving a near-certain exodus of customers once the PPP mess cools down.

That would theoretically benefit independent contractors, LLCs, and even outfits like the Zac Brown Band.  Though at this stage, expectations are understandably low.

      Yes social security people being the last ones to supposly getting the stimules checks . But in the begining they said low income would get stimules checks. That was a lie we are the last to get them. Most of social security people dont make over 20 -30 thousand dollars a year . We are still waiting on our $1200.00 stimules checks . Where is our money? I bet they will say we arent getting a stimules check cause there isnt any more money to give. If that being said than , arent we american people like everyone else if they say that then why should we have to have drivers lienecse, car insurance, etc . We need our stimlues check just like everyone elseneeded it. Workers at least got tax money back some got as much as 5000.00 to 10,000.00 back so why did they get paid stimules money first. I would like for these questions answered by someone that know the truth.

        I agree 100% the irs screwed up my taxes by some how removing information from my taxpayers acct. and no one had answers. Meanwhile I had to file a paper return that I have yet to hear back from and no stimulus, It’s been reported the IRS isn’t even processing paper returns and will continue to do so when their offices reopens, I think this is just ridiculous. Why was they so aggressive with us reporting to the sensors when they never used it as an accountability measure? Just bad decisions making if you ask me!

          Hello… I got my check last week… But I also went into IRS website and filed a simple tax return… Even though I have had no taxable income for the last 5 years because I’m disabled! This is what you should do!! What I did… do a Google search for… How to file a a Corona virus simple tax return!! It should come up with a link to the IRS Corona virus simple tax filing… or something like that!! Then setup a profile/account it should only take maybe 10 minutes!! You can also give your current direct deposit info… it doesn’t matter if you didn’t have any taxable income!! Then 3-4 days later using the same email address & password… You should be able to go on where’s my stimulus check website!! That’s exactly what I did and it worked for me!!

            Your daughter took you as a dependent thus reducing amount she owes on taxes. If you are really her dependent then she is the one taking care of you financially.

            Why did your daughter claim you ? You should have gotten the 1200 a few weeks later In the month you have til May 5th to submit payment information on the covid payment portal through the irs or you have to wait til next year. But that was supposed to only be the 500$ check for dependents.

          I have also been on disability and then social security for many years with direct deposit the whole time. My date to have it deposited every month is the 3rd but yet I didn’t receive my stimulus check until the 8th and it was a paper check in the mail even though they have had my direct deposit info all these years! I only make $1500.00 a month so I think I also qualify for low income but I’m one of the last to receive the check so there’s no rhyme or reason!!

        The bill actually is still being revised by the House. This bill was never meant to include additional stimulus checks. If you look on the congressional website this bill was given to the House on 4/21 and is a separate bill entirely that’s being proposed.

      A couple of weeks ago, I got the direct deposit of $1,200.00 from the Federal Treasury. I’ve been off for 6 weeks, now. I just got my California unemployment insurance (UI) statement, having yet to get a dime of my unemployment insurance, though requalifying every 2 weeks. So,I will not get the meager $450.00 per week unemployment insurance payments that I pay into.

      I haven’t used UI for more than a decade and a half. I got the $1,200.00 from the Federal Government, so they’ve usurped my unemployment insurance checks So, it didn’t go to me; it went to the state.

      The state also violated their own regulations. If one works or has income during a claim week, that income is counted against that week’s insurance check, not every week until it matches. Their statement says, basically, “you’ve been paid for those 6 weeks; you’re welcome.”

      I agree I know people still waiting for some ridiculous reason like can verify your identity but send it to people who rip!!!! In spite of fact taxes filed in 201o and birth certificate on file / why is this to control your life ? I agree another stimulus should be given but 2000 might not need to be as high but another stimulus for 16 and above should be given we don’t hesitate to give to other countries so how about helping our own country . People are hurting look at food lines 1000 cars or more of people trying to get box food and it runs out hour after starting ! People can’t feed their families or pay rent etc so yes to helping Citizens of USA ! 16 years old work during summer and pay taxes they too should get stimulus so don’t do tax cuts that take away from ss . Govt has stolen enough from this plan

      I can’t stand that poor me I’m black shit. I came from a hard-working poor family also. Didn’t have anything handed to me because I’m “white”. There sure as hell isn’t a poor white girl college fund. My dad walked out on us summer before my senior year. I was above average grades, but guess who had to drop out and support a mother having a breakdown and a little brother? Anyone can have a tuff life , regardless of their skin color. Stop thinking you owed something because of yours. Every woman determined to forge ahead using strength and brain instead of on her back or knees is going to have an uphill battle. I assure you, skin color isn’t the reason.

      That’s because you’re one of the few lucky ones that can save $60,000. Most people cant save $600 let alone $60,000. We dont choose where we are born or who we are born to. Take that shit into consideration next time you want to go brag.

      No need to post this, that was gonna be my reply. “The rich get richer, as far as the poorer gets poorer, is a current true statement. Living check to check is beyond difficult, do not wanna offend no one. I lived like this once. And for now basically history repeating itself, (Pocket-wise), folks not all are fortunate. Thou, I respected one of the aboves comment “we weren’t asked who or to where to be born to or in”. Whats imperative is making-it, once we’re, old enough. However, how can the people all (congress, fortunate ones, richer ones, comfortable ones) not be or voice on/for those favor of needing some assistance, today. When this monster (virus) chooses one to infect, it doesn’t look nor knows and doesn’t give a fuck, what u have. So can we all be considerate, and can such a huge protest begin, in general/together as far as getting the stimulus moneys. I mean aren’t we all suppose to be together on fighting this monster (virus). So sad, so heart broken, how people just go fucking nuts when it comes to giving/helping/assisting/providing/dealing with MONEYS.

    U.S. Government fucked us all.

    They knew about this shit in December 2019. Members of Congress were dumping stock based on intelligence briefings. They could have rolled out testing, put at-risk people in quarantine, and let the economy keep running. Instead they forced every business to close. Really easy for a politician to do when it’s not your mortgage payment and livelihood on the line.

At least I’m one of the people who still have a job. At least I’m back to work most others are not.

        I dont understand how you made it before with just your ssdi check? If you have been making it up til then, what is the problem. Too many people live up and above their means. I choose to live without an air conditioner, without central heating, without cable, without internet ( just got internet this month thanks to 9.95 comcast essentials) even without running water when necessary. I dont run my electric bill up or spend hundreds of dollars on exspensive food. I dont get an ss check or ssdi or anything. I dont have a new car or the latest phone. Stop living beyond your means. When my stimulus check came on april 14th, i was thrilled. 1200 dollars means i can live with water, electric, internet, and food for 6 months easy, cause i dont try to live like im rich, and dont have steak for dinner each nigh. I have a wood burning stove in the winter and an oscillating fan in the summer. It can be done, and im disabled but turned down by ss. Quit bitching and shut off the cable and bullshit you dont need.

      You’re on SSDI, the pandemic didn’t lessen your benefits, what changed for you as an individual. These stimulus payments should go to household that have suffered loss of support. That’s keeping it real, not everyone should jump on the band wagon just because. Sure an infusion of cash is great, however that single parent that lost their job that has 3 kids to support, pretty sure needs a stimulus payment more than some one who has not suffered a loss of support at all. We break the back of the economy being greedy and all other assistance programs will suffer, medical housing, child care. Society as a whole will suffer in the end, nothing in life is free.

      When people who just so happen to receive a monthly benefit; be it SS, SSI, SSDI, or Veterans Disability Benefits (I fall under the Veterans Disability Benefits, I’m 100% disabled due to Combat.) That 1 check they receive at the beginning of the month has to last the ENTIRE month. Some individuals get more, some get waaay less. Not to mention, due to price gouging that has happened all over the Country; you add that to your monthly ESSENTIALS, chances are, you in the negative 2 weeks into that month. Those who receive Benefits have paid into taxes and still do when they purchase anything from any damn store. They are just as entitled to the stimulus package as anyone else. People are so damn quick to Judge another individuals monetary situation and to say they should STFU, or they should have saved $60,000 dollars… I’d like to see those individuals get by on the same income as Benefit recipients for, eh, let’s say 3 months without having to worry about which bill needs to be paid for moreso over the others, making sure they have enough food to get by, clean clothes to wear, a bed to sleep in, a warm shower/bath daily, with a roof still dangling above their head. I want to see that happen and then say life is GREAT for us because we get a check every month… Easier to judge anothers situation then it is to actually LIVE through/with it. So tired of everyone thinking that they are above everyone and everything in this world. Wake up calls suck, that’s for damn certain.

Our great goverment can only think of big business and themselves at times like this. I am sure the our President and the senate are living high off the hog while we the American people are in a hole we will never get out of. We still have to pay rent or mortage while third world countries are helping their people by giving them money every month and suspended their rent and mortage throughout this crisis.

      Better yet, protest at your state capitol and demand this hysteria stop and business reopen.

    This writer doesn’t know what their talking about. At least one lore check is in the works. That bill hasn’t even been considered yet because it was just submitted. It an entirely different act called “Emergency Relief For The People Act.” The Cares Act was not the same package.

    Our government officials need to have term limits. They are still receiving their 6 and 7 figure paychecks but want to deny help For the American people. Everyone one of them need to be fired

    Do you know how long it takes to save up $60,000 when you bring in less than $15,000? You still have bills like everyone else, rent, utilities, food, gas, etc… I’m sure everyone on this post would love to have that much money. We all want to same things, but for most people, for various reasons, don’t have the same opportunities.

    If they would have cut checks for 2000 to everyone like they talked about the payroll protection wasn’t even needed. Because between 2000 and unemployment and the extra 600 booster no payroll protection would be needed

      But why are they giving money to those on social security? They don’t generally contribute to society or the economy any more. They are generally on fixed incomes. And, they generally don’t pay taxes any longer.

        We don’t pay rent? We don’t buy food? Really? Just because were on social security doesn’t mean we don’t contribute to society. We still pay the same sales tax as you at the grocery store.

        Grace your fucking crazy!!!
        Recipients of SSA & SSD have paid into the system. They’ve worked their days, paid their taxes & they’ve either retired (SSA) or was injured & now can no longer work.
        SSI are benefits given to people who haven’t worked enough to pay into the system.

        My parents still have Bills to pay, continue to pay taxes (school, road, property as well as paying tax on their grocery/non-grocery items)
        What fucking rock have you been living under.

        The adage: if you don’t have at least some of the facts then SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!

        I’m so sick & tired of “Me, me, me” what ever happened to helping others out, loving your brother/sister?

        Had you have commented that all politicians should surrender getting paid before the very last American resident received their $$$ then I would have commended you for thinking of others. Instead, you throw the Elderly & disabled under the bus as usual. You should be ashamed of yourself.

        What do you mean we do still pay taxes. And we don’t get enough. We have to pay bills and taxes for our house. Then if we have enough for food then we buy if not we are with out. We pay taxes just like everyone else. So think before you speak. One day you will be there and then you will see for yourself.

        Disgusting. They paid into that scam retirement program their entire lives and are getting their money back that the government stole, albeit one month at a time.

        Don’t contribute? You are sick and likely a distant cousin of Hitler.

        How dare talk about people on Social Security we worked all our lives for our benefits, some are sick and on disability for any number of reasons which is none of your business. You should honor some people who are on social security disability for a lot have fought in wars for our country and some have different mental conditions that still go to work and get paid nothing in return do not speak to fast about people’s lives you no nothing about. I will pray for you and this fallen country that unfortunately I am an American

    A DISAPPOINTED UNITED STATES CITIZEN BORNAND RAISED

    With all this going on after 21 years on social security disability they decided to stop my checks the begging of April when they sent me to the doctor I was in his office all but two minutes and some guy in Austin that has no medical degree and sits behind a desk made the decision that I’m not disabled any longer go figure it took seven yrs. to get disability when a judge granted it and they take it away just when even if I could work you can’t find a job now especially at my age I’m 55 yrs old with C.O.P.D ,Degenerative disc. And a list to go on I believe trump is trying his best but the Democrats won’t let him do what needs to be done I really believe come voting time we really need to take areal good looks how our government is being run and make some dramatic changes it’s time to clean house

        Yes, you should do that. Your comments are consistently ignorant and inaccurate. Your use of what you seem to think are witty cutdowns (sheeple, etc.) show your lack of facts for discussion. It is people like you who cause the hysteria and try to divert from real conversations. Everyone can see this, but you don’t care as you keep posting the same worthless junk. I don’t know you, how you were raised or what drives/influences you, but the results have shown, by your words, to be poor at best.

            Yeah, even Trump can figure out how to swindle taxpayers out of money and fund his private companies. He just travels around to host rallies and forces secret service to stay at his properties, charging higher rates to American citizens. Nothing wrong with that.
