NRPLUS MEMBER ARTICLE A key part of Congress’s fiscal response to the coronavirus crisis will almost certainly involve sending checks to most citizens across the country.
On Monday, Senator Mitt Romney (R., Utah) proposed sending $1,000 to all American adults 18 years of age and over. Senator Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) released his own proposal: “Authorize the Treasury Department to immediately cut a tax-rebate check of $1,000 for every adult tax filer making less than $100,000 per year and $500 for each claimed dependent. Married couples filing jointly that make less than $200,000 per year would be eligible for a $2,000 tax-rebate check.”
