Darn socialism helping fix a capitalist crisis, and then Trump used the $1,000/citizen meme, because relief. The market made a slight rebound today during today’s COVID-19 press conference.
INSIDE THE SENATE R-MNUCHIN LUNCH
MNUCHIN said he wants to send out $250 billion worth of checks Ã¢ÂÂ means tested.
First wave would go out at the end of April. If TRUMP has not ended the natl emergency, another wave goes out four weeks later. Mnuchin notes heÃ¢ÂÂs working with IRS— Jake Sherman (@JakeSherman) March 17, 2020
Treasury Sec Steve Mnuchin: “We are looking at sending checks to Americans immediately…Americans need cash now and the president wants to get cash now. And I mean now, in the next two weeks.”
Mnuchin: Discussing details w/ GOP senators. We like idea of $1K.

Pelosi makes no mention of aid to airlines or hotels as Mnuchin is pitching. Ã¢ÂÂDuring negotiations, the Democratic House will continue to make clear to the Administration that any emergency response package must put Families First before any aid to corporate America is consideredÃ¢ÂÂ https://t.co/D86AY2pKpo

The insincerity of saying “I don't take any responsibility at all” a few days ago to @realDonaldTrump claiming today he's done better than anyone handling the COVID-19 virus is the reason for “bad press”, the market jitters and why people fear the worst is yet to come. pic.twitter.com/0oFi5hJpav

TRUMP, March 4: “It's very mild”
TRUMP, March 7: “I'm not concerned at all”
TRUMP, today: “I thought it was a pandemic long before it was a pandemic”
