Biden to Unveil $1.9 Trillion "American Rescue Plan" for COVID-19 Relief, Economic Recovery:

https://www.baynews9.com/fl/tampa/news/2021/01/14/biden-1-9-trillion-covid-19-relief-plan

Here is what the proposal, dubbed the "American Rescue Plan," calls for:

    $1,400 checks for most Americans, which, on top of $600 provided in the most recent COVID-19 bill, would bring the total to $2,000

    An increase in the federal unemployment benefit to $400 per week, and extension through the end of September

    A moratorium on evictions and foreclosures through September

    Increasing federal minimum wage to $15 per hour

    $400 billion would go directly to combating the pandemic

    $50 billion to expand testing

    About $130 billion would be allocated to help schools reopen

    $20 billion allocated for a more disciplined focus on vaccination, on top of some $8 billion already approved by Congress

    Funding 100,000 public health workers to focus on encouraging people to get vaccinated and on contact tracing.

He promised $2,000 when campaigning in Georgia's senate election. He said nothing about the minus $600 we already got. https://youtu.be/wUxA-EZC-60

As it is, last year we got only $1,200 for the whole freaking year. Now he wants to play games with "what I really meant is". It should be $2,000 a month, every month until this pandemic is over and people can go back to work. People are desperate, crime is way up.. stop playing games with the people.

I totally agree with you. ! It's not enough, by a long shot. I think I remember Pelosi saying last March or April, That a monthly check should be given out to the end of this past December.

I think a monthly check is a good idea, as you do, until the Pandemic is over.

1,200.00 check last year, along with the 600.00 that people should be receiving, Is not enough.  Rents alone in this area 1,100 to 1,500.00 dollars per month. Not survivable ! That 600.00 that people received now, has long been spent.
