Do you think it will solve anything, will you get your fair share
 
It was either go trillions more in debt and keep things running and get people some money. Win re-election.
Or
Crash the stock market, go into a depression, lose tens of millions of jobs, lose investments and savings, lose homes and autos, turn the country on its end with panicked people losing everything etc etc etc. Hand the country to even worse socialists.
Edited to add: And still go into even deeper debt with option #2.

D if you do, D if you don't.

I don't know that there was a "correct" answer in this situation.

Either path leads us roughly to the same place.
 
I want me hand-out, too. Where do I line up? I see a line over yonder in front of the boxcars...
Actually thinking about that....I'm just trying to imagine how long it will take to mail all of that out and get it right.
 
I heard if your income tax refund is direct deposit to your account this check will be to. Otherwise it’ll be snail mail and usual government employees subpar performance.
 
Do I think it will solve anything? Yes there are folks now that need food money.
Will I get my fair share? I dont need it know, but I hope others get what they need.
I think the people who have lost income due to losing time at their jobs should be made whole.
I do not think that people who are already collecting unemployment or are on welfare or on any type of assistance that has not been interrupted should get one cent more than they are already getting. They have lost nothing.

I am self employed. The Governor here in Pa ordered my business closed. $1000 or $1500 or $3000 wouldn't dent what I am losing. This will cost me money but right now I can absorb that.
 
And what small business owner would take a loan from the Govt to pay their employees who are not at work because the business is shut down when the employees can collect unemployment AND the Govt will give those employees $600 on top of what they are receiving from unemployment????

I here you. I to am self employed and if I could not work with I can as of now that money would not keep my buisness afloat and I to would loose more than what Big Gov. would be willing to dole out. I wish the best to you and yours through all this mess.
