Take the income tax and repeal that till they deal the pandemic over and I'll be happy
S/ paraphrase: "That won't help the poor people that can't work because the f***in' millionaires won't spend their own money to keep their businesses open. The business the out-or-worker-workers built!" [banghead]

Blatant Cloward-Piven at this point.
The bombed out Hellscape of NYC in the 70s-early 90s, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, and others should be a hint. But commie don't care about results other than absolute power.

Oh come on... are y’all saying you wouldn’t take $12k?
That $12k won't be worth anything anymore if they give it out.

Come on, that is only roughly a 3.9 Trillion dollar lump, and only 650 Billion a month after. Its not like we are a country Trillions in debt.... Besides plenty of other countries have run the printing presses before and they turned out fiiiine. Right Zimbabwe? Weimar Republic?

And you know after the so called emergency is over, they won't want to ever give it up. So, it is not a lump sum. 3.9 trillion twice a year?

Yep... Fun fact, That one lump payment, Plus one more month would Equal nearly the same as what the US spent last year... 4.448 trillion . The Federal Budget in 2019: An Infographic | Congressional Budget Office

In all honestly, Markey is probably panicking over his reelection. Offering Free shit is the hallmark of a worried politician up for reelection.

his election is a guarantee in MA....IF he gets past Kennedy in the primary.

Kennedy is running to the LEFT of Skid Markey.

Let that sink in

And this is $2000 per person, right? I'm married. So, we get $48,000 a year? Granted this is far less than we currently earn, but it isn't bad. We could quit our jobs and have 100% leisure time. They don't want us to go anywhere anyway, so it is not as if we need extra money for fancy trips. And we can downgrade to one junker car now. This could work, as long as everyone doesn't get the same idea and do likewise. Keep working everyone! My wife and I need to leech off of you!

Take a stab at the year's inflation rate if they did this. And I mean measured via consumer price index.

They only want to help layabout socialist pansies. Working people STILL have to pay.
