It takes six weeks or less to process a tax return, print the check and mail the check. Why would you believe this is going to take three times as long?

I have no idea. Just reporting what the national news reported. National news not the cable news. I am not so jaded that I believe they have a political agenda with that report.

I wouldn’t say that either.  I would wonder on the motivations of the person/people that fed them that info.  It just makes absolutely zero sense for this to take more than 3 times as long as getting a tax return in the mail when there is one less step in the process.

The Census' 2018 Poverty Report (link here) lists 38.1 million Americans in poverty, so I'm guessing that was the same figure referenced in the original post. The Poverty threshold varies by family size and age. For a single person under age 65, the poverty threshold is an annual income of $13,064. For a family of four, the poverty threshold is $25,900. These thresholds are adjusted annually for changes in inflation. There is no geographic adjustment for poverty thresholds. 

Of the 38.1 million Americans in poverty (per the above definition), 17.3 million report total family income of less than or equal to half their poverty threshold. 

That's what I read. I was wondering what the $2.00 per day was referencing. 

I'm not dismissing poverty and don't think anyone should live on $1000 per month in the USA but those 38k people don't actually  pay rent, buy food and healthcare for $13k per year.  They need to include the value of the services they are provided such as food stamps, housing, etc... to determine the level they actually live at.

He discussed that in the briefing. There is a special website to assist those people.  They want to do everything possible to get the money in people's hands quickly.

His minions have taken over the government. None of these acting and real cabinet folks have zero credibility now. All that the looney tea party/contract with America/37% deplorables have caused what they claimed to come true. Those 2 doctors are afraid to say what they really to say with that ignoramus stalking the stage. guarantee they will be trashing everything about the man once they are safe from his vindictive power.

I have no clue where the $2 per day comes from, I was just trying to provide more complete info on the topic.

To your second point, fortunately we have measures that provide some of what you’re looking for.  If you are curious, I would recommend looking into the Supplemental Poverty Measure, which is also published by the Census Bureau and accounts for credits, taxes, transfers, etc. such as public housing and food assistance programs.

Henry it would close if you would let it. 

Please explain, Willie? Yes, I could not post but would that eliminate all the crap being spewed? I was very gentlemanly to you. I answered your question in a reasonable, factual manner.  Did you have a problem with that? Meanwhile...did you just see the hate that was spewed by alma man? This thread does nothing but breed divisiveness. It should be ended.  That being said, I reserve my option to share my thoughts until it does. I do not not launch vicious attacks on others and I always try to support  views with evidence. Meanwhile I have been told to "eff off" by some of the classy posters. You completely ignore almaman inflammatory rant...why is that? Like I've said several times...end this thread.

By the way...saw you good posted almaman's insane rant...real classy, willie.I am sure it will make his day to have a such a staunch supporter.  Hope it makes you fee real proud, willie?

This is my point it won’t die because here I am replying to you. You obviously  think Trump walks on water. Many on here and in the country think he is dangerously incompetent. You’re crap is someone else’s reality. That’s politics. We all think our opinion is the correct opinion. I am being more political than I want but I believe you attacked the Obama years. My opinion those were pretty good eight years  But that is an opinion . Unfortunately we can’t express those opinions without becoming hysterical . My opinions aline more to the almaman’s than yours  This is someone who called himself a republican for 40 some years .

Don’t know what he is trying to say with his tea party stuff but yes I think he has fired capable cabinet people and replaced them with adoring yes men. By the way Mnuchin is probably very good. And yes the Doctors are being controlled. The only thing I hate is the political discord between the far right and the far left. I am very much a centrist. Unfortunately be a centrist is a rare being in today’s politics.

The only thing good about the nobama years is they are over and i thank god President Trump had erased most of the executive orders and horrible legislation passed during those years that nearly ruined America.

Roy I know you wear a Maga hat but if you are talking about Obamacare you must be kidding. The republicans have no replacement plan never have. As I stated earlier it was a pretty good eight years.

The right doesn't want to give nearly enough, the left wants to be overly reliant on slow, inefficient bureaucratic systems (i.e. means testing the cash payments). We the people all lose as a result. 

What is the  matter Spoon-balls, you do not want to say what kind of a Dr. you are going to be? I will guess it will be psychiatry, right?
