I'd like everyone to think a bit more about this proposal.

Can we get an open letter started calling on the government to get money to families directly? There is a proposal for 850 billion in emergency funds. That's enough to give every man woman and child $2500. Can someone more influential than I am start an open letter calling for the government to send households money directly. So a household of 4 would get $10k. A household of 2 would get $5k.
This would be incredibly popular and it would actually help the people.
I know there are people on this list who could organize something like this. Retail workers are terrified, as are so many Americans. Perhaps this is something we could do to help.
