I heard today a report on how the government was going to get the individual money out. The official (sorry, don't remember his name; it was playing
in the background) said that the government would use both IRS records and SS records to get the money (Direct Deposit if possible) to as many people
as fast as they could. Well, I guess I'll be getting one after all, since I am on SS Disability.
In other words, they are doing exactly what you demand they do in your rant. They are even working on that "real ID" thing, but the states aren't
quite ready to get it implemented.
As for helping out the businesses, do you understand how this helps the businesses? Yeah, they can get money too, so they don't go bust and take those
jobs with them when this is all over. If they use it to pay things like rent and "catastrophe pay" (yeah, that's a new one on me*), it's free money
(up to a maximum); if not, if they pocket it or buy back stock or something like that, it's a loan they have to pay back. I mean, you do realize this
will someday pass, right? Hopefully sooner than later? So what's that waitress going to do when she can go back to work, but all the restaurants are
Might want to take a deep breath instead of screaming at the TV. You're screaming at the government because they are doing what you are screaming you
want them to do.
* Found out about the catastrophe pay thing from my daughter. She's getting paid just as though she was working, but she's at home waiting out the
WuFlu. Nice gig if you can get it.
