Money Is On The Way! Trump Considers Sending 2 Checks Directly To Citizens As Part Of Stimulus Package + Firsthand Coronavirus Stories

​ ​ ​ ​

American taxpayers could receive some cash for the government in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. As the virus continues to spread several states and major cities are on serious lockdown and people with the virus are giving firsthand accounts. Everything inside….

As the U.S. Coronavirus death toll topples over 100, Trump promises to send taxpayers money to help.

Trump assured taxpayers that “money will soon be coming to you” in an effort to offset the effects of the pandemic. People - especially hourly wage workers nd small business owners who perform services - are losing their jobs left and right. Not only that, a lot of Americans live paycheck to paycheck and are hourly workers, so NOT working means no money coming in and bills not getting paid.

 

 

Treasury Sec. Steven Mnuchin shared details about the White House stimulus bill which would inject $1 trillion into the economy as the virus has disrupted just about every industry imaginable, including the travel industry. It has caused businesses (small and large) to close down or suspend operations and many states and cities to urge citizens to self quarantine.

The stimulus plan includes payments to small businesses, loan guarantees to industries such as airlines and hotels, and stimulus package to workers. The government wants to send checks to taxpayers in about two weeks.

“We’re looking at sending checks to Americans immediately,” Mnuchin said during the briefing. “And I mean now, in the next two weeks.”

Peep a clip below:

 

 

In the stimulus plan, the White House wants to send Americans two rounds of $1,000 checks, spend $300 billion for small business loans and a $50 billion loan for the airline industry.

People have been sounding off on social media after Trump made claims that he knew nothing about the disbandment of the White House pandemic team, that was heralded by President Obama during his terms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As with everything else Obama put on a pedestal, Trump wiped it away.

 

 

 

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced a statewide mandate that NO business can have more than 50 percent of their workforce report to work outside of their home, except for essential services like food services and food delivery services, pharmacies, healthcare organizations, and shipping companies. A full list of essential services will be released soon. Peep his briefing above. 

 

As for a complete lock down of NYC - that aint happening.  Mainly because it can't happen without Cuomo's directive, and he has no interest in doing so.  He says there's no way to lock down only Manhattan and surrounding 'burbs anyway - it would have to be a statewide mandated lockdown. Let's take heed to all these urgent requests so we don't get to the point of mandated 24-hour lockdowns, shall we?

Governors and city leaders across the nation are putting guidelines and restrictions in place on top of the guidelines the federal government released on Monday urging American's to avoid being in a crowd of more than 10 people for the next two weeks to help slow down the spread of the virus.

New York, New Jersey and Connecticut have ordered a ban on gatherings of more than 50 people and agreed to close casinos, gyms and movie theaters. Restaurants and bars will only do take-out or delivery. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced residents are no longer able to travel between the hours of 8pm and 5am. Ohio's governor closed polls hours before Tuesday's presidential primary. Michigan and Indiana will only be working via takeout.

Colorado health officials have ordered bars, restaurants, gyms, theaters and casinos to close down for the next 30 days. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz closed amusement parks, bowling alleys, skating rinks and country clubs. In Louisiana, bars, clubs and casinos have been closed until April 13th. Also, visitors aren't allowed at nursing homes or prisons unless it's an "end of life" or emergency basis.

After San Francisco ordered citizens to stay home, California's Bay Area residents have been ordered to shelter in place.

As of now, 37 states have made the decision to shut down schools. Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly announced the closure of all schools across the state for the rest of the school year.

Several people who have tested positive for COVID-19 have been sharing firsthand accounts of the symptoms they've experienced. See a few accounts below:

A Golden Nugget employee wrote in to Power 105's Angela Yee about how they weren't getting paid. A new report reveals Golden Nugget Lake Charles Hotel and Casino will now give full-time and part-time hourly employees two weeks’ pay.

 

Also, a newborn baby in London has become the youngest Coronavirus victim in the world.  It is unclear if he caught the virus in utero or after birth.  His mother is being treated in a separate hospital.  Sad.
