A Democratic aide and Republican aide said there will be an additional amount per child, which could be in the neighborhood of $300.

Those who earn up to $75,000 individually or up to $150,000 as a couple will be eligible for the payments, said Republican and Democratic sources familiar with the tentative deal.


So, what are you getting?

I know what I want

Hmm $600 for me and possibly an additional $300 because I have a daughter? Total Awesomeness!!!!!!!!

What will I buy? Probably nothing. Pay off a couple credit cards with the $600 and take my daughter clothes shopping with the extra $300 I get just for her being alive

I love how those with an income of over $75,000 (or 150K jointly) are excluded from this. I'm not sure why those people would be excluded. All taxpayers should be entitled to help stimulate the economy. Pretty lame to me.

But anyway. I'm not in that boat. We'll use the $1,200 to pay down on our mortgage.

Can anyone link me the requirements?

I have heard talk about this... but it is for real? When should we expect it?

Sadly, mine will probably go to food and bills.
