WASHINGTON — The coronavirus relief bill enacted Friday includes direct cash payments to help people through the crisis — but one red flag that can cost otherwise eligible Americans money is owing past due child support.
Owing back taxes or other debt to the government is not a problem, according to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman of the Finance Committee and a key author of the bill.
The legislation “turns off nearly all administrative offsets that ordinarily may reduce tax refunds for individuals who have past tax debts, or who are behind on other payments to federal or state governments, including student loan payments,” Grassley wrote in a medium.com post.
“The only administrative offset that will be enforced applies to those who have past due child support payments that the states have reported to the Treasury Department,” he continued.
… The cash transfers are available to U.S. residents with a valid Social Security number who reported making less than $99,000 — or couples earning up to $198,000 — on a recent tax return. The one-time payments max out at $1,200 per person with an additional $500 per child. …
In other words, Americans who are overdue on child support could see their cash payments reduced or eliminated. … |March 27, 2020,

The Coronavirus stimulus check won’t be in the mail for Americans who owe child support, But back taxes or late student loan payments don’t disqualify people from getting the full amount they’re eligible for.
(And, Democrat-Socialists in Congress want to give illegal aliens, that commit immigration crimes, a stimulus check).
This is blatant gender and marital status discrimination against ONLY males/men/fathers. Owing child support is NOT a crime. It is a CIVIL MATTER. There can be no Fourth Amendment probable cause of any crime in any CIVIL MATTER. Child support emanates out of a CIVIL CASE.
Government knows and has done studies showing that over 66% of men cannot pay child support because they cannot afford to, this constitutes an egregious constitutional and civil rights violation. In fact, it is a HUMAN RIGHTS violation. Government, because of lobbying by radical feminists and radical child support enforcement agents is depriving men of their rights to subsist and exist. They claim that they owe child support, but no proof is needed that women/mothers are spending the money on their children. No proof is needed that mothers are most likely working full time and making more money than fathers. Even if unemployed due to the coronavirus pandemic, mothers are getting unemployment and a stimulus check. Fathers’ unemployment is most likely to be garnished for anyone owing child support, while at the same time being deprived of their right to even live at a subsistence level.
Child support enforcement laws suspend or revoke professional and driver’s licenses of fathers, preventing them, or making it extremely difficult to find work or go to work. Then they revoke their fishing and hunting licenses, preventing them from hunting for food to subsist on. Now, they are depriving subsistence level payments to fathers/males/men during a national health crisis. This constitutes an unconstitutional BILL OF ATTAINDER (or BILL OF PAINS AND PENALTIES), which violates Article I, Sections 9 & 10 of the United States Constitution. [And Amendment 13 Slavery / NWS Editor]
A simple explanation of a bill of attainder is: “a law that plunders life, liberty, and property.”
“A bill of attainder is a law or legal device used to outlaw people, suspend their civil rights, confiscate property, punish or put people to death without a trial.” — Bill Of Attainder Project, Saunders, 1995, COCR- (CC#93-1-1037).
A Bill Of Attainder” is a law, or legal device used to outlaw people, suspend their civil rights, confiscate their property, or put them to death, or punish them without a trial.
It is an absolute fact that the government has enforced the confiscation of property for over 200 years. It is an effect of the practice of outlawing that has prompted the government to enforce these bills of attainder. Some segments of American society have been dedicated to seeing to it that different ethnic groups, especially Native Americans, Irish, African Americans, and others, NOW INCLUDING FATHERS/MALES/MEN have been suppressed, repressed, and oppressed. It has not always been within the public sympathy to see to it that there are enforced mechanisms in the law to make sure there is equality.
A more complex, but correct explanation of bills of attainder is:
“A bill of attainder (also known as an act of attainder or writ of attainder or bill of pains and penalties) is an act of a legislature declaring a person or group of persons guilty of some crime and punishing them without a trial. As with attainder resulting from the normal judicial process, the effect of such a bill is to nullify the targeted person’s civil rights, most notably the right to own property (and thus pass it on to heirs), the right to a title of nobility, and, in at least the original usage, the right to life itself. Bills of attainder were passed in England between about 1300 and 1800 and resulted in the executions of a number of notable historical figures.” http://politicalhotwire.com/current-events/131127-vote-defund-planned-parenthood-unconstitutional.html
In American Law bills of attainder are defined in the United States Code, Art. 1. Sec. 9-3 with the five following cases. These cases include the legislative acts and stare decisis of the court. It is from these cases the term bill of attainder can be enumerated into a one-line definition of the term, using all the things a bill of attainder is — “A bill of attainder is a law or legal device used to outlaw people, suspend their civil rights, confiscate property, punish or put people to death without a trial.”
U.S. v. Brown, 381 U.S. 437, 448-49 (1956) ”What are known at common law as bills of pains and penalties, are outlawed by the ”bill of attainder” clause.
Communist Party of U.S. vs. Subversive Activities Control Board, 367 U.S. 1 (1961): ”The singling out of an individual for legislatively prescribed punishment constitutes a bill of attainder whether the individual is called by name or described in terms of conduct which because of its past conduct operates only as a designation of particular persons.”
U.S. v. Lovett, 328 U.S. 303, 315 (1946), Legislative acts, no matter what their form, that apply to either named individuals or easily ascertainable members of a group in such a way as to inflict punishment without a judicial trial, are bills of attainder under this clause. “The fact that the punishment is inflicted through the instrumentality of an Act specifically cutting off the pay of certain named individuals found by Congress to be guilty of disloyalty make it no less effective than if it had been done by an Act which designated the conduct as criminal. U.S. v. Lovett, 328 U. S. at 316.
Cummings v. Missouri, 71 U.S. 277, 278-279 (1867), states, “A bill of attainder, is a legislative act which inflicts punishment without judicial trial and includes any legislative act which takes away the life, liberty or property of a particular named or easily ascertainable person or group of persons because the legislature thinks them guilty of conduct which deserves punishment.”
In re Yung Sing Hee, 36 F. 437, 439(1888) Supports that the doctrine of pains and penalties as punishment without trial, is inclusive as a bill of attainder. (Source: U. S. Justice Dept.)
Americans currently have less civil protection from bills of attainder than the Apostle Paul had with the Roman Empire. Paul saved his life twice by pointing out to Roman soldiers about to kill him that he was a Roman citizen and was protected by the rule of law. In effect Americans have been reduced to being Subjects by losing the right to be protected from bills of attainder that plunder life, liberty, and property.
The above information solidly and academically explains what a bill of attainder is beyond any reasonable doubt. Much to my disappointment this explanation is not yet common knowledge among people, elected officials, or legal professionals. The bill of attainder clauses in the Constitution may be the most ignored federal Constitutional protections in American history. This is in spite of the provision’s potential to provide and protect citizenship, life, liberty, and property.
I urge anyone reading this document to pass it on to your elected officials and demand your rights by ending the “ignorance and negligence” of not knowing and enforcing the protection from bills of attainder. Do not let your legislator’s ignorance make you a Subject. Let them know you wish your rights of American citizenship restored that protects your citizenship.
The stimulus check won’t be in the mail for Americans who owe child support
But back taxes or late student loan payments don’t disqualify people from getting the full amount they’re eligible for…. but those evil heterosexual fathers whose wives left them, need not apply.
It is the same logic as revoking occupational licenses for falling behind in child support, often due to no fault of the father.
Family courts regularly “impute income” i.e., child support is based upon what the judge determines you are capable of earning, not what you actually earn. (Imagine if the IRS did this!)
My favorite one is revoking fishing licenses so fathers cannot legally catch food to eat.
When the ERA comes up, rest assured that women will not be clamoring to have these laws equally applied to them.
There really is a caste system… and involuntarily divorced fathers are at the bottom of the caste. Not man enough to keep their wives from leaving them.
The caste system really does exist, otherwise, how could there be a transfer of wealth from fathers to mothers with no legal requirement that the mother spend the funds on the children for which the transfer is initially predicated.
Very strange that a transfer of funds for the benefit of a 3rd party, with no obligation for the 2nd party to exercise fiduciary responsibility on the disposition of those funds, renders the first party ineligible for relief to which other Americans are eligible… simply because your wife abandoned you.
