Nancy Pelosi recently proposed the House’s extensive Stimulus bill to the Pepublicans. Although Pelosi represents an extremely wealthy high income district, she did not raise the Republican Senate’s qualifying income limits from $75k/yr for single taxpayers and $150k/yr for joint. How do her constituents look at this?

Even if they do qualify, what is $1,200 going to do? Pay for 10 days worth of rent?

Some of them already have their stimulus. This is for the workers.

This is the relevant point. Most San Franciscans don't qualify for the stimulus. If we did, the benefit would be negligible, any way. This is for the ones who work in the service industry and other lower income sectors. It is still not enough to make much impact, though.

I think the government should just give us all back what we paid in taxes last year. Would sustain us for much longer and fairer to everyone, but of course that would never happen because ... government.

Sustain people who earned more money for longer. That sounds like a terrific way to warp speed an already embarrassing inequality issue.

Of course that would never happen because those taxes are needed to build and repair roads, pay cops, fund 911, pay for public transit systems, fund prisons and juvenile justice systems, etc., etc.

Im happy that democrats won the inclusion of greencard holders, social security recipents and people who dont work, and they successfully changed Trump's $600 for low income people to $1200.

I dont qualify to get any of this stimulus money but Im very pleased that the poor and elderly will get at least $1200.
