    Oh, yes. That's true. I do think that this 850B stimulus is OK, as long as it bridges the gap for people who are losing a tremendous amount of income on a month-by-month basis, whether they are employees or small business owners. My son is the former who works for the latter. Double whammy if his new boss's business goes under.

    Maybe George W. Bush was a man before his time!

    Hey I didn't like him and never voted for him, but I do remember a some $700+ stimulus check, maybe more than one, just sent to me all at once (whatever the amount I'm sure it's at least $1000 with inflation adjustment). It might be the only thing I ever liked about W., he got the giving people money thing down.

    Much better than ridiculous payroll tax cuts that noone even notices as they are dribbled out a penny at a time. Did anyone notice them under Obama, I can't say I did (but you can be sure, they will be used to cut social security, because hey betting your entire retirement on the stock market is sure looking like a great idea right now).
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Many seniors living on interest from savings have already been hit horribly by this.

    Yes, I also think about people who were planning to retire soon off of income from savings in stocks. But I feel that eventually the stock market will rally. If businesses go under, it much harder to recoup.

    Flowers, I totally agree. Reno has closed bars, restaurants and non essential businesses. The casinos are closed voluntarily. So relieved for my DIL. It was scary being exposed to so many people daily.

    Nope. This was just today/last night. Flat $1000. I'm trying to come up with his name. He was on the White House briefing a bit ago.
