the Treasury Department is working on the mechanics of giving Americans direct checks, with the amount depending on one’s income and family size. The administration has considered sending anywhere from $500 to $1,000 per check and has proposed Congress spend a total of $500 billion on the measure, with the IRS issuing the first of two rounds of payments starting April 6, according to the Treasury proposal obtained by POLITICO. “We are looking at different numbers. We are looking at timing that would be different,” Trump told reporters Wednesday. “Splitting the time, splitting the payments. We are looking at a lot of different things. It hasn’t been determined yet, but it will shortly be determined. But people want to go big. Everybody seems to want to go big.”
