No because if we are in recession and people aren't paying their taxes, how will the government come up with the money to give out stimulus checks without going into a lot more debt?

@9QSWWWCPeace and Freedom from Florida answered…2yrs

there should be no monetary currency system. this would end the need for an economy and therefore end any recessions or economic crisis.

@9Q4TPQMConstitution from New Jersey answered…2yrs

It should only help out in situations like Covid-19 where majority of Americans lost their jobs.

The government should issue a national economic plan every decade that specifies a specific goal with rewards based on meeting milestones. For example, say it is the 1960's and the Space Race is in full swing. The government should issue a national plan for the development of space related technologies with rewards for meeting goals such as a functional EVA suit, a powerful enough computer to calculate a moon landing, or a functional capsule for crew. By having a clear and defined goal to work towards, the nation can unify towards that objective, therefore boosting patriotism and the economy.

Yes, provide tax breaks for lower income citizens, the government should intervene to boost a recovery, increased spending on infrastructure, and assist sectors most heavily hit by the recession

@9PTVZ5RWomen’s Equalityfrom Maine  answered…2yrs

@9PGTR59Transhumanist from Oklahoma answered…2yrs

Yes, in prolonged times of recession. Some market correction is healthy. When the recessions persists, the government should step in to spur recovery.

@9PD2BWYLibertarian from California answered…2yrs

@9N9LFR2Veteran from Virginia answered…2yrs

Yes--- In the form of a UBI lasting only the duration of the recession.

Yes, but should not then be able to tax citizens on the economic stimulus they receive as income.

@9N7FC4MWomen’s Equalityfrom Maine  answered…2yrs

Yes, but in the form of investment packages over plain-old bailout packages. This would increase capital participation and demand in the stock market, as well as serving as a second stream of revenue for the government.

@9MVCKC6Conservativefrom Oregon  answered…2yrs

Yes, by investing vast amounts of money into industries most affected by a recessions and creating comprehensive public works programs to bolster productivity.

Yes, in the form of tax breaks for low income citizens and by assisting small sectors heavily hit by the recession.

@9LSWHR4Women’s Equality from North Carolina answered…2yrs

Yes, for citizens not businesses. Current form of desired Capitalism dictates hands off by government, do businesses make or die on their own preparations and savvy.

@9LP2MF5Veteran from Kansas answered…2yrs

Yes, but set parameters for qualification. We were blessed to have kept our jobs so for our family it was "extra money", but for others it allowed them to buy groceries and pay rent. Amounts should be fair according to their circumstances.

@9LLR88ZVeteran from Idaho answered…2yrs

If the government enforces lock-downs on businesses and business employees, the government should be responsible for recompensating the businesses.

@9LKQPJMWorking Family from Tennessee answered…2yrs

Yes but only to taxpayers anyone who had avoided paying taxes or has a criminal record should be disqualified

@9LKBF8TConstitution from California answered…2yrs

If we are not paying our taxes for things like this what are we paying our taxes for. Funds should not go to businesses.

@9KNNZYKVeteranfrom Maine  answered…2yrs

The government should only intervene if it can provide revenue neutral solutions, such as infrastructure improvements that "pay for themselves" through tolls or other fees.

@9KNBTCHVeteran from Illinois answered…2yrs

Yes, but proportional to their typical wage. And give an incentive to take a different job until their current position is once again available. There are ‘Now Hiring’ signs all over in many industries.

@9JWYKFZDemocrat from Minnesota answered…2yrs

Yes, and make any stimulus money given to citizens not taxable, meaning come tax season any income from stimulus checks is not to be considered/included for tax purposes.

@9JVNNB7Republican from Texas answered…2yrs

Normally, no, but since the government caused the recession by locking down the country for covid, then yes.

@9JTSBS9Independent from Virginia answered…2yrs

Yes, but it should be directed at service companies (mortgage companies, apartment complexes, utility companies) to allow them to suspend payments for account holders without the need to collect additional payments on the back end.

@9JBL47NAmerican Solidarity from Utah answered…2yrs

Yes, but in the form of tax breaks for low income citizens and higher taxes for the Whaley and international corporations.
