Joe Biden presents $1.9tn coronavirus relief package
Some 18 million Americans are still relying on unemployment insurance. Some 400 000 small businesses have permanently closed their doors. Joe Biden presents a relief package.
It’s not hard to see that, we’re in the middle of the once in several generations economic crisis with a once in several. Generations public health crisis the crisis of deep human suffering is in plain sight.
There’s no time to waste we have to act and we have to act now tonight. I’ll lay out my first step the American rescue plan that will tackle the pandemic.
Get direct financial assistance and relief to Americans who need it the most. We will finish the job of getting a total of two thousand dollars in cash relief to people. who need it the most.
The six hundred dollars already appropriate is simply not enough. We just have to choose between paying rent and putting food on the table. We’ll also provide more peace of mind for struggling families. Extending unemployment insurance, beyond the end of march for millions of workers.
That means that 18 million Americans currently rely on unemployment benefits while they look for work, can count on these checks continuing to be there plus it will be a 400 per week supplement.
so, people can make ends meet you know, I know what I just described does not come cheaply but failure to do so,I will cost us dearly the consensus among leading economists. Are we simply can’t afford to do what I’m proposing.
