Wait...what? The federal government is giving $1000 to everyone? Whose money are they doing that with?

Tax refund to people who filed taxes with the IRS last year.

It's BS. It's theft.

You want to help people? Have the government issue 'hardship' loans up to 1k a month.

If you lived responsibly, then you have the savings and you're fine. If you lived irresponsibly, well, we have you covered... but you're going to pay it back

Tie the interest to inflation. Government doesn't need to make money off the loans and is perfectly content to break even.

There is so much wrong with this one. Not everyone is able to have a savings, we all pay taxes and should be given assistance when needed. Regardless of having a job or not, there are taxes being taken out. This pandemic is going to affect many people and to be honest I don't even know how long we're going to be in this state. Information has been changing daily, and sometimes hourly. Originally NJ was expecting a couple weeks, and now we're expecting to be returning to normal in April. Depending on how the rates go, we could be even longer. Who the fuck knows anymore. I'm glad I still have a job, I am not worrying about paying my bills right now, I am actually earning double pay from this.

But back to this, savings will only take a person so far. These kinds of situations are exactly what we should be utilizing the government for in terms of payment. I pay taxes out of my asshole, if I am forced to paying taxes I want the help in return if I need it. This will help throw some CPR into the economy as well, won't help keep it pumping more, but it will help out while we deal with all these shut downs.

Everyone is capable of saving money. Just people make bad choices in life, and expect the government (and others) to bail them out. I feel we should get rid of all Welfare, before it destroys the nation entirely.

While that may be true, and we should definitely limit government entitlements it doesn't change the fact that a large portion of what people could be saving is being paid into social insurance programs. If we are paying in, we should be able to file the claim.

The point is we should have the programs at all. They open societies up for corruption, and the more you give out the more you incinitvise a portion of your population to leech off the hard work of the rest. You also give people a mentality of relying on the government. "Oh, I don't have to save for retirement, I got Social Security."

100% agree with all that. Just that if people have paid in, I don't blame them for wanting to get paid out.

Fair enough, and I understand as well. I have been paying into a system that I will never see a dime of (Social Security), and that makes me rather angry every time I get my paycheque.

So is this is a loan, or simply money being given away?

They are wealth redistribution.
