Nothing more.

The media is not going to "get on his side" no matter what he does.
Iím not a cabinet member of the administration but Iíll go out on a limb to say I sure the President isnít trying to get on the networks good side. Heís proved once already he didnít give a shit about them and their agenda and heís been living at 1600 Pennsylvania for the past 3 years. Heíll get another 4 years before he has to call a moving company, all without the medias love.
He and his team are going to do it for you, me and everybody because this new viral attack is a catastrophe for the economy and shortly weíll all start hearing real bad things about citizens in deep, running hard water and going under without help.

At least they're giving money direct to the people, instead of to the banks or corporations in hopes of a trickle down effect.

really interested to see how this pans out. Its going to get really complicated trying to figure out who qualifies and how much they get. If my GF lost her job I could easily support both of us financially. An extra 1000 a month coming her way, when we both live under the same roof, seems a bit wrong

Using 2018 reported income makes sense since its the latest available data, but that will still be tricky. What if someone made $150k in 2018, and lost their job becuase of CV? They get left out of the mix. If they're going to send these direct payments, just send it to everyone and be done with it. Put the stipulation on there that if you make over XXXX amount, then its taxable income for 2020.

Their agenda: reporting the news.

Maybe the opposite. When this is over with good weather..this economy will roar ahead (along with the market) like an out of control fcking locomotive.

I truly hope this "free money" helps. But...what are the chances the government gets this right?
I think a better solution would be to pause any and all taxes until this blows over and maybe give some to those that lost their jobs.

A payroll tax break for those still working, and direct checks for those not would be helpful.

For this to be effective, in my opinion, it has to be fast.

Change the framing anytime someone says 'FREE' this or that. It's taxpayer funded.
