Stunning Poll Shows American Demand for Monthly Stimulus Checks

The numbers are simply staggering!

As the coronavirus crisis wears on, the strain on the American economy continues to grow.

We knew that this fiscal downturn was coming, as the necessity of social distancing made it impossible for Americans to enjoy concerts, sporting events, restaurants, or other close-knit activities.  And while many of these institutions are reopening, albeit it slowly, there is a massive lag in the machine now.  Some businesses may never fully recover, and that means more Americans out of work and a stifling of the velocity of money.

Thus far, the government has seen it fit to send out one-time $1,200 stimulus checks in a direct payment to Americans, but this surely won’t be enough to stave off an ugly economic episode.

And, if you ask We The People, there is quite a bit more that the government could be doing.

A recent survey shows how the opinions of the American public have changed over the course of the coronavirus pandemic when it comes to the federal government’s role in one’s health and financial status. Most Americans feel that now, perhaps more than ever before, the country must improve the way it cares for citizens who are unwell and provides for those who are most in need.

The survey of 2,000 adults was conducted by OnePoll over the last few days of April — right when many states were beginning to lift some of the restrictions they put in place at the start of the pandemic. More than three-quarters of respondents agreed that now is the right time for the country to experiment with universal healthcare. Additionally, 76% of respondents feel that people who contract COVID-19 shouldn’t be charged for their medical expenses at all.

Further analysis shows that interest in moving towards a universal healthcare system doesn’t vary too much by political affiliation. In fact, 74% of self-identified Republicans and 84% of self-identified Democrats agreed that the country should institute such a system in response to the pandemic.

Moreover, 81% also believe that insurance companies should cover all COVID-19 related expenses.

Several proposals regarding additional stimulus have been made in Congress, but they have largely been doomed by Democrats’ incessant need to stuff the bills with pork.
