Haha, do you know the Marquez' or do you just enjoy their food?  Good stuff.  Their house sauce on the crawfish is tasty!

Senate had their way with it, and they are saying only up to $1,200 for individuals and up to $2,400.    That’s going to help, but a whole lot of people are going to be fucked.  

It’s an election year - figured they would have pushed for more.

Wife and I are going to replace our hot water tank with a tankless model.  Wanted to put it into savings, but I was planning on doing it later this year, and the installer I use is a small business owner.  I suspect the amount of work he usually does is going to be cut in half, if not more.

Sucks man, been there done that.

 

The year 1993. Another recession hits, and I get 1 days notice before being laid off.

I come home to the wife with one daughter already in the high chair.

WIFE:  Hey hon, how was your day ?

ME:  I was laid off.

WIFE:  Well............ that sucks... oh by the way I'm pregnant.

 

Fade to drunk......

 

It worked out, have faith, and plenty of alcohol handy.

Went through a similar experience when the dot com bubble busted. We had one baby and another one on the way. Shitty feeling but it did change the trajectory of my career for the better.

Well so far I’ve bought a shotgun, a pistol, a freezer, and a greenhouse kit. 3 of the 4 being local purchases. If Uncle Sam wants to reimburse me, I’ll take it.

Dunno. Wife bought it off of amazon. The box got delivered today and will be on the front porch for another couple of days before I do anything with it. It’s smaller packaging than I expected for a 6x7x7 but we will see next week, and the box has a 70+ lb sticker on it.

It's weird how things work out. It always seems so dark, and life ending, but it gets better.  It sucked for a while for sure, but if you've got anything on the ball you get thru bad times.  The wife always said, "don't worry we'll be OK...."

Being in the construction industry, every 7-10 years we seem to have dips so you kind of get used to riding the waves.

Good luck to all of you who are qualifying for this money.  My family does not qualify for help.  Didn't know we had it so good.

Whatever has been published so far isn't set in stone, so who knows at this point.

The Senate GOP proposal was $1200 for individuals making less than $75k, but less than $1200 if making between $75k and $99k.  Nothing after $99k (for single). 

For couples, $2400 for less than $150k.  Dunno about the phase out or max. 

$500/dependent.

And weirdly enough, the people who need it most (those w/o federal tax liability) only get $600.  Both Romney and Hawley (MO) said fuck that, it won't fly.

I guess that's couples filing jointly? (maybe stupid question but i've been married for less than a year)

Do you have a breakdown of the individuals that don't file with the IRS?  Genuine question, I'm guessing it's a strange mix

Whelp. There's a leak in the drainage system somewhere under my house. I hope my plumber appreciates this stimulus package, because I won't likely see a penny of it.

My guess is that they are thinking this type of worker are kids or stay-at-home parents working a few hours here and there for extra cash while their parents/spouses are the breadwinners. I'm also pretty sure they don't fully understand how poor a large portion of our country truly is.

I’m curious on this too. Need to go look at 18 return and see where we fall but no clue what line to look at for married filing jointly.
