Sanders calls for $2,000 monthly payments, suspending some bills

Sen. Bernie Sanders on Friday outlined wide-ranging priorities for a fourth coronavirus relief package. Sanders called for a future bill to include a $2,000 monthly ’emergency payment’ to every person in the country ’until the crisis has passed’. In addition, he called for the suspension of ’monthly expenses like rent, mortgage payments, medical debt, and consumer debt collection for four months’.

The presidential race is going to be reduced to who can promise more freshly printed inflation. Eagerly waiting for Biden to promise $5k and a new car.

You can't say let's give everyone 2k a month AND remove bills. One or the other sure but there would be no reason to send money if they don't need it for bills.....duh

This is the right move. American citizens are hurting for cash flow. If you want to keep the economy moving you have to 1. Get money to the people and 2. Give them a timeframe of how long they have to stretch the money in order for them to not save it all.

Without suspending rent, mortgage and credit card and other payments we're looking at 33 million homeless families in the USA and 50 million people without health insurance. Those people and many more will need to resort to violence to survive. I think it's pretty effed up that banks, corporations and Wall Street billionaires get bailed out by Trillions of taxpayer dollars and then also demand their payments from people that are out of work thru no fault of their own because of mandatory government lockdowns. Every time Capitalism fails, it's Socialism to the rescue. But it seems it's always the wealthy elite that need to be bailed out. The working class and poor never get bailed out but we're always the ones paying. It's just my opinion that this time the people should get bailed out by the wealthy. They can easily afford it. Let the corporations, banks and Wall Street fend for themselves. If they fail, too bad. No skin off my ass. Besides, for every corporation that fails, hundreds of small businesses will spring up to take their places like trees after a forest fire.

Or maybe just give money to people who lost their jobs, but give more if it based on their income. And no, this isn't me being self-interested because I still have my job and the chance of me being laid off is next to 0.

For many people living in high cost areas such as New York and California a reoccurring monthly payment of $2K is more in-line with expenses but why didn't Sanders ask for this in the initial stimulus package? I think what happened here is that the so-called champion of the progressive movement got called out on his approval of a fairly weak worker package in which the primary beneficiaries were larger banks and financial institutions. Too little to late Bernie. You should have spoken out when you had the chance. Good luck!
