"Here’s why Senate Democrats want to give Social Security beneficiaries an extra $200 per month amid coronavirus scare "

"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., put forward a proposal last week that included Social Security income. However, because the plan uses income from 2018 tax returns as a qualifier, it could leave out those who don’t file with the IRS because their income is too low. " 

And would leave me out also because I started receiving in 2020!!!

What should he use? income qualifiers from 2020 or 2021?  Really? For sure if nobody is working, that will not add to their SS allowance. At that point, I suspect your income would be quite low if any.

Use Nothing!!

everyone who collects SS gets the extra $200. I realise that some who don't need it might get it, but we are not about to cut our nose of to spite our face. 

I did not understand anything after the first sentence of this post.

I am not surprised. If the economy shuts down, you will not have an income. If you don't have any income for 2020 then your 10 year (40 quarters) will decrease your eventual SS income. 

I personally already receive SS but I would sacrifice any increase for the benefit of those more in need. BTW  I am not rich and could use an extra 200$/month.

2020 income taxes haven't even been recorded so how is the Govt supposed to assess that?

Regarding your source, I point you to the very first sentence:  "A senior Republican Senate aide tells NRO:"

 

I thought Trump supporters didn't like anonymous sources.

Does the article say that the source was anonymous and wanted to remain that way?

Are you  referring to when he closed the border to try to prevent the spread? <SNIP>

No. BTW now that Covid is in all States of the US, do you remember the pearl of wisdom below from trump? 

 

"A virus that starts in China, bleeds its way into various countries all around the world, doesn't spread widely at all in the United States because of the early actions that myself and my administration took,

Yeah, you are right... I don't get it, but at least I wont have to  read anymore pure BS. I agree to giving assistance to those who need it now, but not to Planned Parenthood or subsidies for anything unrelated to the current crises.  Wind and solar farms? I think that can be viewed at some point in the future.  Not now.

If you don't believe what I am telling you all you need to do is look at Pelosi"s  opposition to the bill being discussed.  Reducing aircraft carbon footprints?  To quote Uncle Joe " comon man"

Please provide links as I did.

You should find it informative to understand exactly what the Dems are offering, Some of the Dem's line items are proposing to fulfil airline industry request, which the GOP package has failed to do. IMO fair enough to request transitioning to a lower carbon footprint if they are offering billions in grants. I'm sure you will remember trump's insistence quid pro quo is perfectly acceptable.

 

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-03-23/airlines-would-get-37-billion-in-grants-in-pelosi-s-virus-plan

This is not the time to add a lot of pork to the bill.  Pretty basic concept. Review carbon footprint later. Not when the country and people are in need of jobs and employment. Boeing, whether you like them or not, employ 1000's and their suppliers employ 1000's more, ergo sustenance for the working guy or gal.
