I just can't stand the GOP's stupid stance on this.
Any reasonably savvy administration would be making the unemployment subsidy $1,000 and calling it TrumpPay.
But, Nnnooooo!

Will this be like the last one, where the CEOs pocketed the cash and we all gave our grandchildren an IOU?

The same, but bigger this time. That last one barely paid for the bribes they had to dish out just to get their beaks wet.

Mark Cuban stated that there should be $1K/stimulus payments sent to every American every 2 weeks for 2 months.

Trump wants it because, "Hey, I wanna win the election so anything that helps me win I want done."

Who doesn't want it? Congressional Republicans.

Then they'll wonder why the lost on November 3rd.

TrumpBucks™ are issued immediately and become valid 6 weeks after issuance (to prevent impulsive spending). They are only valid for the duration of Trump's presidency and do not apply during Lame Duck transition periods.

I'm not the best at math, but I'm not too sure our budget can afford the world's largest military and taking care of our people while taxing people at the lowest rate in history.

So... uhhh... yeah.

Just print more!!!

If the money goes directly to the people I could not care less because i know they'll use it... on debt or food or whatever... If you give it to companies they'll just buy more stock or yachts from foreign countries.

Maybe try cancelling all federal student loan debt and seeing the kind of stimulus that has on the economy. I hear from smart people that it would be kind of a big deal.

2 months?
This thing isn't going away in 2 years. Why all the short term temporary bullsh*t when people are going to need the help for a lot longer. It took a decade and a world war to end the Great Depression.

Top CEOs say 'someone else' should be responsible for paying their employees enough money to live.

BREAKING NEWS: Obscenely Overpaid, Overvalued CEOs Demand More Money

Since the CEOs are asking for help, Congress and the White House will immediately take notice and act upon it.  Millions of Americans, not so fast. This should provide $billions for Wall Street and the stock market while pennies may trickle down to the masses.

If only there was some kind of deferment on mortgages so that the poor CEOs could keep their summer, winter, and autumn homes...

No more stimulus or bailouts.  They didn't work.  This time, let fire be the cure.  Burn it all down.  Fire is a known virus killer.  Use science.

You know, if I had all those homes, it would drive me insane.  I would totally forget where all my stuff is.  I could always buy duplicate stuff, but knowing me, I would buy them in different colors or whatever as to not be stale.  I guess I could just buy duplicates of all the colors, and all the shapes as well...

Difficulty would be I would have favorites of my stuff.  Guess I could just have it shipped along with me, but then...

Why am I even going here?  I will never have an Autumn house.

If those assholes ever adhered to their principles of helping business they would unleash over 3,000,000 to buy homes, open businesses and generally buy more shiat, thus improving the economy for all their rich supporters.

But they are stupid so we all suffer.

Socialize the risk, capitalize the reward. It's the American way.
