does the new stimulas plan include money to low-middle class people?

i looked on the internet about it and all i could see was a plan to give more foodstamps, medicare and help those laid off. has anyone heard if its the same as the last stimulas plan that will give us checks in the mail? i dont get foodstamps,medical and were not laid off so how can this benefit those of us that dont qualify for these but are still barely making it?

  • I was supossed to get 600 since I filed taxes last year and I never recieved it, my husband got his and for our son. I am once again getting screwed out of my share to be honest. From what I saw with this one is it's for the women who didnt get their last names changed on their social security cards and everything else. My husband and I could really use the extra handout we don't get public assistance or for stamps or WIC and we are barely making it so I know how you feel. I almost want to go sign up and get those things but then would feel guilty because their is people less fortunate than me who could use it even more

  • I'm the same as StarMommy--my SS card still has my maiden name and we received ours electronically. Early June as well, I think.

  • i don't think they have all the details worked out yet.
