Stimulus Checks

Sorry Ms Hemli, but you are mistaken. I, who make an income in the $3,000 to $75,000 range like you have said would get the full $600, didn't. I also got $300 dollars and it is becuase I didn't pay taxes this year I got a refund because I bought a house. So I got cut in half as well.

I am not sure why you are only getting $300 but there is a calculator that will tell you how much you are getting and why. I know that it doesn't seem fair to you BUT you didn't have it before so quit complaining about FREE money. REVOLT all you want but you didn't have it last year or last month and it sounds like you won't have it until next month. It isn't something you earned or worked for so take it and be glad they didn't cut poor people out all together. They could have done that or decided not to give out the stimulus package at all.
