AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The Bailout: It failed because it rewards people who make more money. $4500 to 154 million Americans, 18 & older, working or not, Medicaid, Medicare cost $700 Billion. It was needed befor Covid 19. Than, No buybacks for any Corporations taking a Loan. Are we getting interest on the loans? You decide? Main Street needs QE in many forms now!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Good plan to mobilize the production of protective equipment & testing to be distributed to healthcare providers first, then the public to continue working. With testing and equipment we can further contain the virus and keep our economy going. I still want QE for the Middle and Lower Classes . They needed income before the virus and need it more now!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Angus Deaton’s new book on Diseases of Despair, hitting poor white West Virginians & Mississippi people is symptomatic of a Healthcare system corrupted by greed! It needs accountability & cost containment to effectively work. Full disclosure: this is Guardian review, I’ll read the book and give you my conclusions. Is our system of Healthcare, the why?, behind diseases of despair? TBD

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The Plan to save our economy keeps workers and Corporations afloat. The Government becomes the lender of last resort. Unlike the Economists, I believe a one time substantial check to those barely earning a living and seniors who are struggling is also a necessity. Means testing $75,000 and less.154 million Americans.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce $4500 per person for 154 Million is proposed as a Bailout for the Middle & Lower Classes. That’s $700 Billion! Give it in one lump sum. For stimulus to be effective and relieve debt, disease and stress, give the money all at once or its like giving nothing. Do not Bailout Major Corporations, especially Marriott, who’s letting go of employees without paid leave. Support Main Street and the money will circulate.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Service workers are vulnerable to loss of income, their needs are not addressed. Hotels & restaurant workers will lose wages and require the same medical & paid sick leave package quarantined to W2’s. QE for Middle & Lower Classes would be worthwhile for those struggling, working or not, young & old. $5000 to 154 million Americans costs $770 Billion and is a true Stimulus package. No more tax cuts and money to sectors when so many will suffer.
