People who make $80,000 a year or more would not receive $1,400 stimulus checks from the government under a compromise accepted by Senate Democrats. The past two economic relief payments shrank incrementally for taxpayers with annual incomes between $75,000 and $87,000, or $150,000 and $174,000 for a couple. The new proposal would lower the upper threshold for receiving any payment. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said the change satisfied concerns he had about the enormous price tag for the bill.
