    Default Coronavirus Stimulus Checks

    Looks like were going to see some extra money in the near future, the problem is everything's closed so we cant spend it.
    What puzzles me is, just months ago Trump wanted to cut Food Stamps, Social Security, Medicare and other social programs claiming the country is broke - we now have more money than we need, what changed?

    Senate Approves Roughly $2 Trillion in Coronavirus Relief

    Who qualifies for stimulus checks?
    Individuals who make up to $75,000 per year and heads of household who earn up to $112,500 will receive a $1,200 rebate from the federal government, while couples who earn up to $150,000 annually will receive $2,400. For those who exceed those income levels, the benefits are gradually reduced at a rate of $5 for every $100 of additional income, and are eventually capped at $99,000 for individuals, $146,500 for heads of household, and $198,000 for couples. Additionally, parents are eligible for a $500 rebate per child.

    Will retirees and Social Security beneficiaries receive stimulus checks?
    Yes.
    The proposed bill includes language that allows Americans receiving Social Security—many of whom are retired and don’t file taxes—to obtain direct financial assistance through the coronavirus stimulus package. In such cases, the government would access their data through the Social Security Administration to determine their rebate.
    That said, not all older people who are already reliant on government assistance are immediately eligible for a rebate. According to Steve Wamhoff of the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) think tank, the current bill excludes recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a federal welfare program granted to elderly and disabled people who are often living in poverty and, in many cases, aren’t required to file tax returns.

    When will the stimulus checks be sent out?
    This is where it gets tricky. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said that he’d like to see Americans start receiving direct assistance in as little as two or three weeks after the stimulus package is signed into law—but that seems exceedingly optimistic.
    The quickest time frame in which the federal government has previously been able to issue stimulus checks has been six weeks.

    I see trump tried to sabotage payments to S.S recipients yesterday and failed, I swear this man is the devil.

    The Trump administration is adding an extra barrier for Social Security recipients to get their stimulus check
    President Trump approved a COVID-19 congressional spending package last week that would grant $1,200 individual checks to Americans making up to $75,000 each year; the benefits start to phase out after that threshold. But to access that check, Americans will have to file some kind of tax return even if they usually don't have to, IRS guidelines say.

    Social Security recipients who donít usually file tax returns will automatically get $1,200 payments, Treasury says in reversal
    April 1, 2020 at 8:17 p.m. EDT
    This story has been updated.
    The Treasury announced late Wednesday that Social Security beneficiaries who typically do not file a tax return will automatically get the $1,200 payment.
    The announcement is a reversal from earlier in the week when the Internal Revenue Service said everyone would need to file some sort of tax return in order to qualify for the payments. Democrats and some Republicans criticized the IRS for requiring so many extra hurdles for this vulnerable population to get aid when the government already has their information on file.

    I think Trump is our country's second problem after the coronavirus. This person should not even come close to power, and not to be at the head of the country.

    Trump is the problem - That's like saying Charlie Manson is the second problem after cult murders.
    To date Trump has yet to honor the dead or even mention the death toll, in fact he lies about it in fear of looking bad - it's always about Trump.
    If it wasn't for Trumps criminal negligence hundreds of thousands would still be alive, 99% of the deaths where avoidable - not to mention his super spreader lying for dollar rallies.

    Trump should be charged with criminal negligence resulting in death, he's a homicidal psychopath and doesn't give one dam of how many die.
    Criminal Negligence charges could be brought at the state level in each state where deaths resulted to deny Trump the protections afforded from a Federal Pardon.

    Involuntary Manslaughter
    There are two types of involuntary manslaughter statutes: criminally negligent manslaughter and unlawful act manslaughter.
    Criminally negligent manslaughter occurs when death results from a high degree of negligence or recklessness. Modern criminal codes generally require a consciousness of risk and under some codes the absence of this element makes the offense a less serious HOMICIDE.
    An omission to act or a failure to perform a duty constitutes criminally negligent manslaughter. The existence of the duty is essential.
    https://law.jrank.org/pages/7781/Inv...ous%20HOMICIDE.

    Public health expert says ‘zero doubt’ most U.S. virus deaths were avoidable
    In response to this growing death toll across the country, more than 1,000 health professionals have signed a letter saying that, if we don't change course and do so quickly, those deaths will only continue.
    The letter is titled "Shut It Down, Start Over, Do It Right." It recommends targeted closures in certain hot spots, far more testing, better contact tracing, and the need for unified, coherent communication.
    Citing the successful efforts of other countries, it says: "We could have prevented 99 percent of America's COVID-19 deaths. But we didn't."

    The President's Pardon Power and Legal Effects on Collateral Consequences
    Pardon Power and Origins
    First, the pardon power is limited to "Offences against the United States," which prevents the President from intruding upon state criminal or civil proceedings.6 Second, the pardon power does not extend to "Cases of Impeachment," which prevents the President from interfering with Congress's power to impeach.7
    https://www.everycrsreport.com/repor...20to%20impeach.

    State vs. Federal Prosecution
    In order for the government to have power to regulate any kind of behavior, it must have “jurisdiction.” In most cases, jurisdictional issues are straightforward—the crime occurs within a particular state’s boundaries, violating that state’s laws, and therefore giving that state the power to prosecute. Likewise, a crime that occurs on federal property—for example, Yellowstone National Park—authorizes the feds to deal with the suspect. But some crimes violate both state and federal law, enabling both governments to bring criminal charges.
    Some crimes, on the other hand, are left only to the states.

    DOUBLE JEOPARDY? NO PROBLEM
    Successive state and federal prosecutions don’t violate the clause because state and federal governments are separate sovereigns.
