Rep. Cleaver Calls For Recurring Direct Payments To Americans Until Coronavirus Crisis Ends

April 9, 2020

(Kansas City, MO) – Today, United States Representatives Emanuel Cleaver, II (D-MO), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), along with 57 other members of Congress, called for direct cash assistance for Americans to continue on a monthly basis until the coronavirus pandemic subsides.

In a bicameral letter to Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader McConnell, Minority Leader Schumer, and Minority Leader McCarthy, the lawmakers wrote:

“Simply put—people need more money in their pockets, and sending monthly payments to workers and families is the fastest and most direct way to address that need. Now is not a time for timid solutions. In the face of an unprecedented moment in economic history and public health, we need to offer bigger, bolder and far more aggressive policies.”

“With another staggering 6.6 million Americans filing for unemployment this week—totaling more than 15 million workers in less than a month—it’s crystal clear that we’re facing an economic challenge unlike any we’ve seen since the Great Depression,” said Congressman Cleaver. “Families and workers have been crushed by the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, and we need to ensure they can maintain a roof over their head and food on the table until this crisis subsides. The best way to do that is direct payments to those who have been devastated by the virus.”

You can find the official letter attached.

More money would be nice. At least as much as those airline executives are going to get for doing nothing.

Who needs more money? The welfare recipients in da hood already get plenty and besides, don’t you all know this is just an advancement on your income taxes next year? What happens when some of these people have to pay this back? What will the cleave do then?

Thanks, Trump. 15 MILLION unemployed. US economy in ruins. 14,000 dead with 1000 more dead each day. Hope you enjoyed all that time blown golfing and tweeting. Fucking imbecile. Same goes for his Deplorable following, too.

Cleaver, you stupid cocksucker, we would have more money if the Democrats weren’t taxing us to death.

Cleav, donate your salary, you're sure not earning it. In fact all of congress should cut their salary be 90% and live on the same wages you have forced on all of us. Asshole!

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.

Why not just people return to work.

And just what could have been done by anyone else?

Well, again, poor effort. D- trolling at best.

This is just rancor. It's not funny, it's just meaningless hate-spew. Remarkably stupid, too, as if any President wouldn't have had similar problems in the face of a largely unexpected worldwide pandemic.

Minus a few extra points for shitting and pissing all over yourself in fear when there is an end beginning to come 8bto view.

Cleaver can’t donate his salary. Last time I checked, it was being garnished because he defaulted on a court judgment he got hit with for defaulting on a bank loan. Good thing this guy’s not watching the Sunday collection plates.

An advance on a possible tax refund is only going to create another crisis this time next year when people's refund before the advance is less than the advance. Wtf does that solve ?
