‘This is sheer economic waste’: Our $1,200 stimulus ‘gift cards’ should have gone to people who need them. Why did we get them instead?

Dear Moneyist,

My husband is 82 years old. I am 83. We are retired. We are neither Democrats nor Republicans.

In fact, I don’t believe her father had any idea he had fathered a child. Without the genetic match, it is extremely doubtful whether the relationship would ever have come to light.
