I know, but it'll set a precedent for basic income.

It is also absolutely necessary imo.  If we've learned anything from the Great Depression its that a social welfare system is critical during a catastrophic downturn.

I think it's a good idea as a public (socialisthhh) bailout to avoid the Big D. 

Ironic how Medicare For All is bad, but Money For All is good.

I'm going to be real surprised if American corporations learn anything from this.  They are totally focused on their next quarter and so globally invested that they don't give a sh## about any one country.  It's going to take government action and regulation to shorten supply chains and produce strategically vital components here.

Grocery stores were already being drug into online ordering.  This is really going to train even their slow-adopting customers that they don't have to go in the store.

Impulse buying (and margins) will particularly suffer.
