White House will handout cash to Americans

Amidst all the doom and gloom there's also some good news for Americans:

The White House has confirmed that it's planning a massive $850 billion package to put cash in the hands of everyday Americans while also bailing out the airline industry.

The details will probably follow later, but it sounds like good news.

What do you think?

I just hope it's real and that it reaches the Americans who really need it. It always seems that the ones in the greatest need get the least help. There's a kind of horrible top-down power structure in America, whereby the poorest never really get looked after.

I hope it's real too. I could use the money right now, as the coronavirus has been hurting jobs all over the world lately. I am also trying to find another job in the meantime, but no one wants to hire with how the virus is spreading.

I know that I sure could use the money right now. But I agree that somehow it ends up benefiting those that really do not need the assistance.

I've heard they only plan to give the money to people who make $65,000 a year or less. I should qualify as I don't make near that amount. Some people may get extra for having kids too.

I hear it could take months to send checks though.

I just read something about people being sent checks in the next two weeks. Good thing too. I know several people who are out of work with no savings. Not good! I think if this has taught us all anything, it is to be prepared!
