$2 Trillion Divided by 145 Million . . .

. . . is $13,793.   That’s the average cost per taxpayer of the new $1,400 checks that some of them are being promised.  (145 million is the approximate number of federal taxpayers according to the IRS).

If every single American citizen were give $1,400 it would cost about $435 billion.  Not that everyone will get a check — those earning above $80,000/year are “phased out.”  I wonder what all the rest of the “COVID relief” money is for.
