Coronavirus Relief: Mitt Romney Wants To Give Every American $1,000

Senator Mitt Romney has proposed giving each American adult $1,000 immediately to assist in fighting financial struggles brought on by COVID-19.

“Every American adult should immediately receive $1,000 to help ensure families and workers can meet their short-term obligations and increase spending in the economy” Romeny later said, “Congress took similar action during the 2001 and 2008 recessions. While expansions of paid leave, unemployment insurance, and SNAP benefits are crucial, the check will help fill the gaps for Americans that may not quickly navigate different government options.”

The idea sounds nearly identical to Democratic Presidential contender Andrew Yang’s freedom dividend. The idea that each American over the age of 18 receives $1,000 per month for life, simply being an American.

The Romney team was quick to point out that this was a one-time payment.
