It seems in the midst of a pandemic that affects everyone relatively equally, one should hit pause on rents and mortgages, and have the fed provide wage income to labor directly, using their most recent quarterly-filed information.

Sure, there will be some people who don't work and rely on investment income. But since they make up such a small percentage of the total population, it would be relatively easier to have only them go through an application process for assistance.

Seems to me, if you have enough money to be relying on dividends for a living, you probably have enough capital to get you through a year of trouble. Wage earning laborers? Not so much. Small business owners? Not so much.

But let's not keep the people who actually make and do things afloat. Let them drown. (/sarcasm.)

Securitization of loans worked out so well last time.

Very well, in fact.  All banksters were made whole but for one sacrificial lamb.
