If they want to really get the economy back give everyone $6000 and tell them they have 90 days to spend it or they loose it. Don’t give it to corporations so they can get their stock price back up to make their stockholders happy. If your administration was really concerned for your well being giving everyone $6000 with a time limit would boost the economy like no one has ever seen. The way it is going now all our government is doing is satisfying big business.

Everyone laughed at Yang for proposing giving every man, woman and child a $1000. Looks like he may have the last laugh.

My thoughts for the day.


Did you get your zeros right ? My thinking not putting much time into it. 328 million people if each one got 1million that would only be 328 million. 2 trillion is quite a bit more yet.



uh....NO!

under your math, each person would get one dollar.

The biggest shame of all is that these politicians will not be held accountable for what they are doing in regards to this stimulus bill. They should be held accountable......with extreme prejudice.

A thousand million is a billion. A thousand billion is a trillion. After that is a bazillion. laugh The Democrats will get there eventually.

Man I need to go back to work for more 16hr days so I can get some rest. The farm work spring clean up and honey do list is running me into the ground. Thanks for lining me out. I obvious needed it. Just wow I really feel quite intelligent right now. wink

Furloughed workers would get whatever amount a state usually provides for unemployment, plus a $600 per week add-on, with gig workers like Uber drivers covered for the first time.

I forgot $600 on top of state unemployment. The senator Graham said tonight it was $1100 a week for unemployment in SC. Heís one of a few voting No if that stays in. I wish I made that kind of money for sitting on my butt


Graham and other GOP senators argued that state unemployment benefits plus $600 a week would result in higher pay for staying home than for working for people making less than $23 per hour. That argument was correct but an easy fix would have been to make it as lump sum payment (of whatever amount) rather than as weekly payments. People could then do what they wanted with the money but would have no extended disincentive for working.

Good or bad it is headed to the house now. If they pass it Trump will sign it. Looks like the D's gave up some demands and got some met. Business as usual. Time to enter that keystroke at the fed, fill the ink pots and start loading the paper racks on the printing press. The national debt is going to increase 2 trillion dollars in the next day or so.

The democrat $$ in the bill for non-corona related topics could of made millionaires out of just about everyone in the US. That alone probably would have stimulated the economy.

Catch, you beat me to it. I was going to say the same thing. This was part of the democrat's bill they refused to budge on. There were other things included that are ridiculous and have nothing to do with COVID19.

One other thing. What about people receiving welfare? They will still get their welfare money, food stamps, SNAP, etc. Will they also get stimulus money? Shouldn't this be designated for workers only?

YES! If they want to have a stimulus bill because of a health crisis it should be only that, period. Throwing all this other crap in there is BS and no way to run a Country, they should be ashamed of themselves.

Giving money to people who already have money but dont spend it is a waste of money.It should go to those who live hand to mouth and spend all their money at local small buisnesses day to day in order to get by.

The business money comes with the condition you keep paying your employees even though they are home.

It doesn't matter at this point. It didn't work in the past and it won't work this time. The money needs to go to businesses, not individuals.

Also who is going to go back to work if you can stay home and receive 110% of your normal income ?
Just an attempt to increase the number of unemployed.
