But until recently, the president was largely unreceptive to that message, they said, not fully grasping the magnitude of the pandemic — and overly preoccupied with his own sense of grievance, beginning many conversations casting himself as the blameless victim of the crisis.
In the past couple of weeks, senior advisers began presenting Trump with maps and data showing spikes in coronavirus cases among “our people” in Republican states, a senior administration official said. They also shared projections predicting that virus surges could soon hit politically important states in the Midwest ..... including Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin, the official said.
This new approach seemed to resonate, as he hewed closely to pre-scripted remarks in a trio of coronavirus briefings last week.

Bring back that daily prime-time TV show, Donald Trump's Brag Race. It had "Win!" all over it!

Sending money to the PEOPLE. Not sure what happened to evictions. Monthly 600 extra is gone.
The Tax Structure of the Check
Both checks are advances on a refundable tax credit for the 2020 tax year. This means that the bill would create a new refundable tax credit based on your income and will pay that to you now as an advance.

The credit is based on your 2019 tax return, if you filed one, otherwise it can use your 2018 tax return as a default. It is widely expected that if you don’t file a tax return, you can update your information on the IRS Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here form if you didn’t do so already for the first check.

It Is Protected Against Federal or State Debts
The second check will also be protected against federal or state debts, with the exception of past due child support payments.
So you will have to file taxes in 2021 to be able to use your 1200

Texas Republicans started death panels because of Trump crony Gov. Greg Abbot's anti-mask position when he reopened the state recklessly.

I had my actual physical today, after the "old people" wellness one. My doctor and his colleagues have diagnosed less than 10 covid cases, one or two people by telehealth. It is fairly easy to diagnose. All were sent to drive thru swab and all were positive.

The anecdotal basis for Senatar Cruz's opposition to continuing US federal boosting of unemployment benefits for lower wage workers (noted a couple of days ago in this thread) meets up with actual data. No extra points for a correct prediction of the result. Not that any Real American™ cares what pointy-headed economists say about 'data.'

'Yale Study on $600 Unemployment Lifeline Championed by Democrats Destroys Favorite GOP Talking Point'
A new study by Yale economists out this week debunks the repeated GOP talking point that the $600 federal expansion of unemployment benefits has disincentivized people from returning to work—findings published the same day Senate Republicans released a coronavirus relief proposal which critics condemned as an "utter disgrace" that will "unleash widespread suffering" on people nationwide.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that Congress passed and President Donald Trump signed in late March provided those who qualified for unemployment insurance (UI) with an extra $600 per week on top of state benefits, a boost that meant total payments for some low-wage or middle-class workers exceeded their normal weekly incomes. With the GOP in the Senate now refusing to pass an extension approved by the Democrat-controlled House, those added benefits are set to expire on July 31.

Despite polling that shows the public popularity of the added boost—and economists warning that taking it away would spell financial catastrophe for the country—the Trump administration and GOP lawmakers who oppose an extension claim it encouraged layoffs early in the pandemic and deters people who make more from UI benefits than their former job from returning to work as businesses reopen.

The Yale study (pdf) destroys that GOP talking point. The economists examined weekly data from Homebase—a firm that provides scheduling and time clock software to small businesses—and found "no evidence that more generous benefits disincentivized work either at the onset of the expansion or as firms looked to return to business over time."

I think the GOP are banking on more chaos during the long run-in to election day. A bit of shouting and rioting from a wave of jobless, poor, hungry people with little or no access to healthcare during a global pandemic is a gift to a law-and-order party.
