Bernie Calls for $2,000 Monthly 'Payment' to Every American 'Until the Crisis Has Passed'

A $2 trillion stimulus wasn’t enough for soon-to-be-failed 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (VT). In reality, though, if the pandemic persists for months, he might be right.

But to send every American $2,000 a month until coronavirus goes away seems like a bit of a stretch, regardless of how high the unemployment rate will soar.

At some point, the economy is going to need to be saved. Printing more and more cash isn’t going to do the trick.

From The Hill:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Friday outlined wide-ranging priorities for a fourth coronavirus relief package as lawmakers begin to discuss new legislation amid the pandemic.

Sanders, in a list released by his presidential campaign, is calling for a future coronavirus bill to include a $2,000 monthly “emergency payment” to every person in the country “until the crisis has passed.”

[…]

The third coronavirus bill, passed late last week, provided a one-time check of $1,200 to individuals making up to $75,000. The amount of assistance scales down until the gross adjusted annual income hits $99,000, where it would be phased out altogether. It also provided an additional $500 per child.
