WASHINGTON - U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, speaking to reporters on Monday after a meeting with Senate Republicans, said he was seeking a “big number” for an additional stimulus package intended to prop up the economy amid the coronavirus outbreak, but he did not elaborate. One Senate Republican, Marco Rubio, told reporters that Mnuchin had asked Republicans to move on an additional measure targeting airlines and small businesses this week.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he aimed to win Senate passage of a coronavirus response bill that has already passed in the House of Representatives.

How much for Goldman sachs?

You got $1.5 trillion. That's it that's all you get.

Does anyone fear how stevie boy plans to pay for this because it aint coming from those with a fucking yacht

How about Avogadro's number? That's fairly large.

We voluntarily close down the global economy and are surprised economic activity/health measures literally nosedive? I'd be more worried if they didn't lol. And now we're surprised they are trying to paper over it to keep it alive. Like gee... how about RE-OPEN THE WORLD instead!

So, is he talking about a quadrillion? Can we borrow 1,000 Trillion from the Chinese even though trump is naming the virus after them?

You're gunna suck too much of our blood at this rate! We haven't even gotten to industry and sector bailouts yet! Just re-opening the global economy is free, doesn't cost average people their futures (purchasing power), and smarter than this.

Never any specifics

This one’s for the little people, right Steve?

Would seeking the ‘big number’ fall into Barr’s directive to all U.S. Attorneys telling them to prioritize investigating scam artists who are seeking to profit from the coronavirus pandemic. 'The pandemic is dangerous enough without wrongdoers seeking to profit,' he wrote.

How much gets funneled to the Kushner family?

Number two, no doubt.

What a total muppet 😂😂😂

The proliferation of TrumpSocialism

My gut tells me that if the US Govt. were to stimulate the American Workers then the American Workers can pay their rents/utilities and buy food for the kids sitting at home or start looking at rising unemployment because those gig workers aren't.


How about just clearing all debt in the United States for people under a certain medium income? Because that would be enormously helpful :) though wishful thinking.

They got us panicked, locked up in our homes, they scared us into giving away our freedoms and now they are cashing in on the hysteria. They fabricated this crisis, that's how to control, for them its just business. Trust no government!

Another 14 plus Trillion. Like the bailouts in 2008, 2009, 2010 ... 😖 We are all fk’d

Mnuchin' a portrait of an asshat

Probably why he doesnt want anyone to withdraw money
