Democrats will be proposing a new bill that will give millions of American families a $3,000 coronavirus stimulus check.
On Monday, Democrats will introduce a bill that will be aimed at lifting millions of American children out of poverty.
The new bill is apart of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus proposal that has recently been met by resistance by Republicans. The new bill that will be proposed on Monday would send $3,000 per child between the ages of 6-17. The bill also would send $3,600 per child that is below the age of 6 years-old.
So, who would be eligible? According to the Washington Post, the payments would be sent out monthly and would phase out for individuals earning $75,000 per year. For joint couples that are earning $150,000 per year, the payments would phase out. The new proposal says that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) would be sending out the payments in July.
