We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on clown meat.

Dad was a US citizen in the military. So just like Cruz and McCain she has no reason to be ineligible.

Damn, took some time away from social media tonight, but just crawled Twitter for a bit only to see the Fox News/State News outlets, as well as Trump, are retconning their reprehensible reactions to COVID-19. Devin Nunes outright lying tonight about his statements on Fox over the weekend telling viewers to go out and be merry, is but one awful example.

They are completely retrofitting their position seemingly unaware that there is video evidence to the contrary.

Old people being scared to go to the polls has to be a big help to Bernie right? I'm guessing there's more early voting that normal but the majority still votes on primary day.

Someone smarter than me with money stuff tell me why something like floating mortgages back a month wouldn't work.

Like, could you basically order that mortgages are essentially pushed back from April, so the total life of the mortgage is just extended a month at the end. So nobody has to pay their mortgage in April, and then ideally that also gives a break to people paying rent (provided they don't have a scumbag landlord...tall order, I know). Is this do-able?

Well, totally. But you'll hear some BS about how this will cause the banks to become illiquid, which is incrimentally true but not nearly as important as people having money to spend. It's less of a burden than forgiving a month's worth of rent, obviously, which is where the money really should be going.

Yeah, that was my thinking: if these idiots wanted to look for something to help jump start the economy to any degree down the line, it would be people having money to spend. Float the mortgages for a month, do the Romney and co. whatever plan of giving out a grand to everyone, and standby with serious tax breaks and bailouts for the smaller businesses that have to weather this.

This is all a no duh, even for Republican thought. The only reason the Senate is holding any of this up is because they want to extract some kind of consession on abortions or something. Its gross. And yeah, the reason its important to keep the banks liquid is so they can loan money to people so that they can spend and remain productive. Not only that, but this could cause massive amounts of foreclosures. Even the banks don't want that. A short term moratorium on mortgages makes sense for everyone involved. Its essentially lowering the interest rates to zero for a month a two, which is a tool the Fed has been using already.

They need to give people money to pay their bills directly. Mitt Romney knows this and for saying it he might as well switch parties if he wants to run for President again in 2024.

Illiquidity is a real issue and not a marginal issue.
