Will fertilized eggs receive the $500.00 payments? The GOP says these are "people".

I want to hear the GOP go on record saying that fertilized eggs are
not eligible for the payments, as they are not really people.

Failing to do that, I believe that every fertilized egg has a check coming.

4. Per Citizens United, . . .

corporations are people, too. I would not be surprised to see corporations clawing for their $1,200 checks to individual Americans, on top of their $50 billion dollar bailouts.

5. Fertilized? Why so stingy?

I've got millions of sperm each owed a check, as far as I'm concerned. And I'm their payee.

8. Which is actually the correct answer

A beneficiary child has to have an SSN for the child tax credit... and the current legislation is modeled on that.

Which will cause some problems for college students and others who are dependents on someone else’s taxes but are over 17. No check

... and delivers in the next, are the parents eligible for a Family deduction for Both years?

10. Yes. I believe you are correct . All people living should be able to

Be able to receive social security payments nine months before we received them. Also, people will be able to drive nine months before there driving age. Drink a beer nine months sooner. Go to school nine months sooner and graduate sooner. Vote sooner. Own a gun sooner. Feel free to add to this. I will take my nine months of social security checks now, please.

11. Yes...

That's a good question.

If I had some fertilized eggs stashed away in the freezer, could I apply for $500 for each of them as a primary caregiver? Are there any thawing requirements involved?

Just a GO-Pee hypothetical
