Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney has proposed a fresh one stimulus check by increasing the child tax deduction that started in 2021. If his proposal gets through Congress, eligible families could receive about $ 350 a month.
But there promises to be little variation from previous stimulus checks, as citizens who want to claim the cash must meet certain job obligations.
Mitt Romney’s team has stated that the senator’s proposal has not yet been published and is in the processing stage. Negotiations between both parties are underway.
A stimulus check under the new Family Safety Act, as Mitt Romney sees it
Families with children under the age of 5 will receive one stimulus check at $ 350 under the law, as proposed by Mitt Romney. For families with children between the ages of 6 and 17, the stimulus check comes in at $ 250 a month.
Parents can receive a maximum amount of $ 1,250 per parent. month. The law contains certain provisions. In addition, Mitt Romney’s plan requires that the payment of the stimulus check be gradually phased out over time, depending on income.
So if a single branch has an income of over $ 200,000, $ 400,000 in the case of married couples applying jointly, $ 50 can be deducted from monthly payments for every $ 1,000 that the branch earns that exceeds the monthly income levels each month.
Romney said in a statement that U.S. families are facing the worst economic strain that has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Birth rates and marriages remain at a record low. His proposal will provide greater security for American families through a consolidation of the various complicated programs to create a monthly cash benefit for them, while not increasing the deficit.
But a controversial element of Senator Romney’s proposal is the requirement to have a job. This is the precondition for being entitled to the scheme. Even most states have similar work requirement programs that force recipients to volunteer, work, or achieve an equivalent amount of job training for 80 hours each month. That’s independent of the details of Senator Romney’s proposal.
