    This is good news and never made sense to me why they didn't do this in the first round. Hopefully it says in the final bill because a dependent is still a dependent, regardless of age.

    Maybe it could help if life changes (income drops) make them recently eligible for discounts/subsidies?

    I agree with caps as well. Though would be nice if the IRS could make an exception for those that made above cap levels on their last tax returns BUT they suffered significant hardships that now make them eligible. Would mean getting the stimulus as a tax credit so you could prove the financial hardship somehow, but there are those that have been hit hard, like small business owners, that could use the funds. Unless I missed something and that will also be a part of the process?

    Yeah it's all been extremely political, and ridiculously transparent how political it is. On both sides of the aisle in my opinion. Regardless of that, I'm expecting by early to mid March a version of the new stimulus package will be signed, so checks of $1000-$1400 by March - April sometime, depending on if its mailed or direct deposited.

    I agree its not without benefit to Amazon's bottom line. But I do think its a good idea. If we are entrusting big pharmacy chains like CVS and Walgreens to handle the future bulk job of administering vaccinations, why not employ more private sector for distribution.

    Was a great speech btw. Very refreshing and I believe Biden when he says he is for unity and healing among all else. Sure I expect him to play politics throughout his time in office like every other President, but I do think he is genuine. And while I didn't think he was the best candidate for the DNC to pick, I'm starting to come around on him being a good leader and choice for the moment we are in right now.

    He's the 46th president, then why is it the 59th inauguration?

    Because of multi-term presidents, like Obama, Bush, FDR, etc that were inaugurated more than once. The ceremony has been conducted that many times.

    Imagine they will extend the deadline again for filing, and probably just want to see how it goes the first few weeks, hoping there are no issues. But no doubt shrinking the window isn't the best idea. I'm having to wait to file to get my stimulus rebate. Its a little frustrating, but I changed bank accts, so I kinda asked for it. Since I owe, its not a big deal for me either way.

    Good choices. I like the Nick Offerman NASCAR one the most. Big fan of his, and its patriotic while also poking fun. Well made as well.

    What do you think? Is the House smart to move ahead with impeachment days before Trump is set to leave office or was what he incited on 1/6/2021 so terrible that it requires his immediate removal no matter how many days he has left in office?

    When I first saw the headlines of the attempt at a 2nd impeachment, my first thought was 'that's stupid, there's only a few days left in office'. But then I realized the consequences of him being removed before his time is up - can't run again being chief among them - and then immediately came on board with the idea.

    I think what happened at the Capitol and Trump's role in inciting that crowd requires him being kicked out of office, whether its in the middle of his term or with only hours left on the job.
