(Independent Sentinel) Democrats are rallying behind a plan to give some Americans monthly $2,000 relief checks during the coronavirus crisis, The Hill reports.
If Republicans don’t agree, they will be the bad guys in November, if they do do it, they will probably cause irreparable harm to the economy.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) endorsed the monthly relief checks. It will likely be part of the multi-trillion-dollar relief package we can expect to see shortly.
“The government has told people we need to shelter in place to keep safe. So it’s the government’s obligation to provide for basic expenses while we’re telling people not to work. It’s really that simple,” Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), a very far-left progressive leader who has authored legislation calling for more relief checks, told The Hill.
“We need $2,000 a month for families struggling to pay the bills,” he added.
Communista Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and communistic Progressive Caucus Co-Chair Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), have teamed up on the ABC Act that would give every American $2,000 a month for the duration of the crisis, and $1,000 a month for an entire year after the crisis ends.
After it ends!
Similar legislation offered by Khanna, who was co-chairman of communist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) presidential campaign, and Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), would be based on means-testing.
