House Democrats propose $2,000 monthly payments to Americans

House Democrats have introduced legislation that would expand the federal government’s coronavirus relief cash payments to $2,000 a month until the economy recovers. Under the proposal, the relief amount will be paid for at least six months to all US citizens who are 16 or old and make less than $130,000 per year, while married couples earning less than $260,000 would receive at least $4,000.

"Two House Democrats introduced a bill calling for payments of $2,000 per month to Americans until unemployment falls to pre-pandemic levels." How can even the most progressive Lefty think this would be in any way sustainable?

Where will the money come from? We didn't have the $1200 I received today. The government doesn't own anything, it takes from me, and rather than not taking, wants to give my money to people. Don't write me a check, stop taking money from my paychecks

Great idea, millions of people are in need of support. As long as the virus is an issue we can’t work as normal. If we can’t work, people will need money. This is how you keep the economy alive.

I really think it would be far more wise to do this as interest free loans, instead of money that will just go into the national debt.

Andrew Yang, eat your heart out! I will definitely take it, but half will go to gold so I will still have something left after the dollar completely collapses.
