Bernie Sanders Hosted a Digital Roundtable On the economic impact of Coronavirus. Here’s the video. As birdies reported in an earlier thread, the event doesn’t appear on the screen until about the 20 min mark.
Sanders explained why the GOP bill is terribly inadequate for the working people. 70,000 new unemployment claims.
“What in God’s name does a one time check get you?”
Sanders proposes monethly stipend of $2,000. Says one-time $600 is “nowhere near what working people of this country need.”

New grads laid off their jobs would not receive any direct financial assistance.
Sanders says congressional Democrats should reject the GOP coronavirus proposal "and we should sit down and work out a set of policies that work for working families, not just large corporations." And "as a member of the Democratic leadership, I am attempting to do just that."
