Americans would receive $2,000 a month under House Democrats’ plan – Business Insider
The Emergency Money for the People Act, introduced by Reps. Tim Ryan and Ro Khanna, would give $2,000 a month to Americans over the age of 16 who make less than $130,000 a year.
The payments would continue for at least six months and would last until unemployment falls to pre-coronavirus levels.
“A one-time, $1,200 check isn’t going to cut it,” Khanna said. “Americans need sustained cash infusions for the duration of this crisis in order to come out on the other side alive, healthy, and ready to get back to work.”
