Yep, you're getting $1200. It is designed to stimulate the economy. Therefore if you use it to pay off debts or put it in savings you are a traitor to your country. In order to be a true patriot you must go to Walmart/Target/Betsbuy/Macy's/Costco and buy a bunch of stuff, whether you need more stuff or not. If your family already has a lot of stuff, buy more stuff anyway.
