AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce There is no trickle down & continuing to provide the same inadequate support to the Lower & Middle Classes is shameful. Contractors, long time unemployed, & others are not getting enough money to survive. Relieve their anxiety & give them a basic Living Wage. $10,000 to 164 million only costs &1.6 Billion and May last for a quarter, Or 6 months & stimulate the economy too! I think this is a good idea, whose time has come. Why make life complicated. If we’ve got 600 new Billionaires, why can’t we offer a small lifeline to those in need?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce 1/2 hr of Periscope chat concluded. We discussed So Korea’s 2 Nd wave of Covid and how So Korea & Germany support People Thru WiFi, affordable Healthcare, monetary support for everyone. People & Profits. In my view: we need a Social Safety net here. Stimulus for the Middle Class & Lower Classes would benefit the entire economy and give Peopke a safety net. I’m for Social Justice & Equal Opportunity!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Universal Internet’s a necessity. 12 million kids have no connectivity. There had to be a will to make life better for millions here & billions around the World.
