Mitt Romney On Board with Plan to Give Every American with $1,000 in Virus Relief

As more and more businesses shut down temporarily, this idea is looking better and better.

As we face the threat of COVID-19 bravely and with unity, American culture will soon be undergoing a temporary, but jarring shift.

We won’t be eating out at restaurants nearly as much, if at all.  Our bars and breweries will be providing limited service until such a time as they can’t any more.  This will be annoying and frustrating, but it will be necessary.

Of course, the loss of the hospitality industry income will be a rather large economic problem to solve, and lawmakers are working around the clock to conjure a solution.  One idea involves giving every single American $1,000 in order to help them in these troubled times.

Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah on Monday outlined a list of proposals to address the coronavirus outbreak, including giving all American adults $1,000 in response to fallout from the spread of the disease.

Romney’s office framed the proposals as a way to ensure economic stability for working Americans.

“Every American adult should immediately receive $1,000 to help ensure families and workers can meet their short-term obligations and increase spending in the economy,” a release from Romney’s office states, adding, “Congress took similar action during the 2001 and 2008 recessions. While expansions of paid leave, unemployment insurance, and SNAP benefits are crucial, the check will help fill the gaps for Americans that may not quickly navigate different government options.”

In addition to that, Romney’s proposals call for providing grants to affected small businesses, measures aimed at easing financial burdens for students during this time and actions to bolster telehealth services amid the outbreak.

Other lawmakers have previously suggested something similar, including radical Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who herself was a bartender before joining the public service.
