Really? Enlighten us on what you like about this bill.

I like the bill for all the obvious reasons.
$1,200 direct cash aid to individuals, increased to up to $6,000 per household,
$175 billion housing assistance fund to help pay rents and mortgages.
$75 billion more for virus testing.
$600-per-week boost to unemployment benefits.
15% increase for food stamps,
new subsidies for laid-off workers to pay health insurance premiums under a COBRA law
a special "Obamacare" sign-up period.
an employee retention tax credit.
$200 billion in "hazard pay" for essential workers on the front lines of the crisis.
Most importantly there is:
$1 trillion for states, cities and tribal governments to avert layoffs
$375 billion for smaller suburban and rural municipalities largely left out of earlier bills.
The Payroll Protection Program would get $10 billion
There's $200 billion in "hazard pay" for essential workers on the front lines of the crisis.
And here what you deplorables Probably really hate:
$25 billion for the U.S. Postal Service.
$3.6 billion to help local officials prepare for the challenges of voting during the pandemic.
I think all these things are important tools to fight the virus.
This is a war. Do you Want the virus to win?
Maybe YOU should tell us what you don't like and why you don't like it.
