Listening to polls has made me think about our Society’s values. How is it, that Americans who protested against the purposeless of loss of life in Vietnam, created venomous chants against LBJ,( “HEY , Hey LBJ , how many kids did you kill today”?), have turned a blind eye toward Covid 19 deaths. Our deaths, … More TheVoiceOfJoyce YouTube EPI #44 Comedy Today!https://youtu.be/83rApck5Fv4

TheVoiceOfJoyce Don’t stop Economic stimulus now, 50 million people are out of benefits, many have no jobs to go back to, if & when we crush the virus with rigorous testing. People will thrive & the Economy will thrive too! There’s nothing more important than going with “Livk a Stick”, the Rapid in your home SalivaTests. Stop outbreaks & resume living. It can be as simple as the Simple TestMeanwhile, we need a Safety Net for Everyone, in the poor & Middle Classes

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Americans have reason to be fearful of permanent job losses. 61 % have not returned to work. There’s no social safety net for them & the GOP Senate is on vacation? Where is their compassion & understanding of the those unemployed? Reductions in unemployment taxes only reduces benefits. Stop the schemes and give everyoneworking or not, Medicare or Medicaid, 18 & older, cash checks to survive a Pandemic that doesn’t affect you, but effects every American. Give a lump sum $10,000 now to 154 million Americans making $75000 or less. Do it now. The Cost $1.6 Trillion. Provide a Social Safety Net and cut down on our stress. If we had had a National Policy to contain Covid, we wouldn’t be in this position today!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Debt restructuring starts a price. There will be a debt re set and it can be orderly & productive for Society. Whether Sovereign or Corporate, if debt collection is delayed, the money saved should be spent on Healthcare & Climate Mitogation. New rules for orderly transitions. We may have to reset consumer debt during this time as well. With an intended ripple effect. It’s not to early to think about the economic effects on People who are out of work & money. A basic Living Wage now would have tremendous benefits to society.$1.6 Trillion gives 154 million Americans $10,000 each to survive the year. No strings attached. Anyone 18 & older. Working or not. Savings in Healthcare would be enormous.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce You can keep unemployment Ins going , but many would be better served with a Basic Living Wage, $800 Billion gives 154 million Americans, working or not $5000 each. People are desperate, they need food, they need safety and they need relief from the unnecessary stress. If we had National Leaders acting responsibly the virus could be controlled . We didn’t, people need help. Increase the BLW $10,000 , it costs $1.6 Trillion well spent. Than approve the Rutgers In Home test daily & we can all live & work again

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Hoping for the best isn’t a plan. The Lower & Middle Classes need stimulus to survive the Summer & Fall. Not enough money has gone to the States and more money needs to go to potential workers & entrepreneurs ! My preference: QE for the Lower & Middle Classes. We’ve been stagnating for a decade.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As the World pushes to reopen, days of mourning are proposed along with free stimulus money to member States in the EU that require no repayment and do not add to the National debt. Asian countries doing the same and 6 or 7 months past the Pandemic China is returning to life. America is seeing an uptick in cases outside main Hot Spots. Take reopening slowly. Without People, there are no profits.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce why is McConnell dragging his feet when 20% of our Nation are out of work? Now is the time for stimulus: on going benefits, investment in Coties & States, Infrastructure on every level, including broadband & WiFi, computer donations. Facilities upgrades for schools & housing, education and Healthcare. So much to do. Why so little GOP Senators will?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce When you analyze the statistics counting the unemployed, the % is upward of 25% ? If true , are approximately 60 million out of work, at a Time when the GOP are having their Hoover Moment. Factories can spend money to make their workplaces safe. How will all the unemployed survive without assistance. This is a time for stimulus not ideology. It’s interesting, GOP Ideology is invoked only when “we the People “ need assistance.? Hypocrisy!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Right now the Public trusts the States & wants stimulus for Healthcare, education, WIFI &/or Broadband & computers for everyone plus Infrastructure programs. Short term how are we feeding the homeless and millions unemployed? We’ll need more non profit to go deliveries to people in need.
