The Thread for Democratic Socialists/AOC watch with 24/7 AOC updates
« Reply #1676 on: March 25, 2020, 08:39:33 AM »
aoc's former chief of staff being way smarter than warren.

Don't know why this is so difficult for Congress

Where's the cash from these businesses going to come from? Are we supposed to fulfill that payroll with monopoly money? IOUs? What about the cash for the bills that need to be paid? That's a good plan for large businesses, a really shitty one for small businesses.
Check the new to investing thread where all the resident “experts” dismiss inflation. We can just print infinite amounts of money, no issues according to the experts.

I'd be more than happy to expand it!

You can't expand it without literally handing out gobs of cash. People aren't spending money if they can't leave the house.

Yes, I agree. That's not the same as the reimbursement program that was in that tweet that you and sys endorsed.

Amash is right. Just hand out cash to everyone. Filtering it through corporations is dumb.

It’s the biggest reason I’m a fan of UBI. Cut out tons of wasteful spending trying to figure out who gets what to give to whom.

I really think you need to do both: basic income for everyone + cash to businesses to keep the lights on until everyone can come back to work.

the lag time makes it highly unlikely any small or medium size firms most affected will be able to weather the storm anyways.

I admit, the solutions on offer aren’t really my cup of tea, but just a straight all cash stimulus would be better than the current bill.

Man I really hope this isn't true.  Pretty depressing thought.  I think a lot of the upcoming loans will help many get through.

I’m talking specifically about entertainment, hospitality, oil and gas, real estate, retail (non big box or grocery) but I’m sure others will get swept up too.

it has some issues (that can pretty easily be addressed, imo), but it has the enormous advantage of keeping everyone employed with their current employers.  if you do it any other way, most companies will basically have to fire huge numbers of people or go broke.  there's no reason to force that sort of dislocation.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

That was a lot of words that could have been summarized by, "Ocasio-Cortez has decided that she will not endorse progressive candidates in primaries that have a democratic incumbent colleague."
