The low-income groups get the most. Of course, $1,200 doesn't go far to begin with. Ideally it should have been double or triple that - I hope Congress approves a second or third such round of payments in the summer if the recession persists.
$75k is low-income in Silicon Valley and San Francisco. We live on half that. I wondered more how the total payouts will be distributed across all income levels up to the limit.
