Dear Senate: STFU...and get to work.

Doing what's popular is giving people what they think is a 3-18 month lockdown vacation from work and free money.

Doing what's right would be to isolate/lockdown only those who are vulnerable to the flu, not the entire population and the economy.
The entire population is vulnerable.

They have paused just about everybody's bills. All anyone needs is food, water, and medicine for the time being. Rice, beans, and medcine are all the gubment should be handing out for the time being.
All this free money is just going to be paid back, we need to be looking at ways to collectively minimize it.
nobody's paused "everybodys" bills..

people have expenses

foreclosures are forestalled, etc..

The airlines aren't gonna get money for nothing. If they want a bailout there will be strings attached.
If it were up to me, the airlines wouldn't get a red edited cent. No point in making politicians richer with insider trading. And WAshington doesn't seem to want to police itself, which is why criminals like Maxipad Waters and Dianne Feinstein continue to get mega rich off their insider trading schemes.

Here's a thought. Kick ALL the illegal aliens out of the country and use the savings in welfare payments to finish the wall. No more viruses, heroin or child pornographers get in.
Then tell every able bodied welfare bum that the gravy train is over and that they'll have to get off their fat lazy asses and get a job.
That would probably bring us close to balancing the budget.

And if you think people's electric and water bills have been paused, you are high on meth. Bills have to be paid or things get shut off. Food has to be bought and prepared or people starve. And people cannot buy food if they don't have a job.

The federal government doesn't have the reach to stop EVERY landlord out there from evicting a non payer.

This isn't the time to bailing anyone out. Everybody should be working on a shoestring budget right now as there are very few ways to even spend money right now, save the fiscal stimulus for when its time to restart the economy.
Wouldn't you know it, none of the Washington Democrats have had to cut back on their expenses? None of them are worried about losing a job in a crisis that is mostly THEIR doing.

Maybe it was just locally, but mortgages, electric, water, gas, cable, internet, were paused.
I’m still paying all my bills...but then I’m a normal, well-adjusted, responsible adult.

I know you don’t have a mortgage, but have you really stopped paying all of your bills? I know literally no one who is doing that in any state.

The virus didn't cross the border illegally, Heroin mostly flows through legal border crossing, and child porn is mostly on the internet which is borderless. So funding a wall, is nothing more than a dumbass vanity project.

The US was at near record employment levels in 2019 and had a record level deficit. So the dots are not even connected here.
And if you think people's electric and water bills have been paused, you are high on meth. Bills have to be paid or things get shut off. Food has to be bought and prepared or people starve. And people cannot buy food if they don't have a job.
The government is gonna have float large swathes of the population for the time being. Everybody is just going to have borrow against the future.
The federal government doesn't have the reach to stop EVERY landlord out there from evicting a non payer.
Can't evict if you can't leave your house.

I haven't stopped, but then again I am still employed.
 
You're wrong. Mostly affects the elderly and those with medical preconditions and Immune deficiencies. The vast majority of the population who get the coronavirus will show little to no symptoms.
No, its more like 20% don't require hospitalization. The virus is spreading exponentially, to where the entire population will be infected before memorial day, and hospitals don't have the capacity to handle extended hospitalizations for over 20% of the population.
