No comment, but I think recession means “in a time of economic crisis” so probably.

@7YS3KJPIndependent from Arizona answered…1wk

Yes, but focus the spending on sectors most heavily hit by the recession and consider tax breaks for all citizens along with increased spending on infrastructure, if that's attainable. Also set consistent limits on the amount of stimulus that can be spent or make that stimulus dependent on other factors.

@97XJFMXIndependent from Florida answered…1wk

Yes, but far too complex for this box. Essentially, data-driven decision-making based upon computational modeling and quantitative surveying.

For everyone this time? People that work hard, and have higher incomes are supplementing lower income families. That’s Socialism

@97W5VZD from Florida answered…2wks

I don't think so, but if it is it should be given to the people and not large multinationals.

@97VZXVK from Illinois answered…2wks

Both the supply and demand sides should be stimulated in order to prevent excessive inflation or unemployment.

@7PTCG38Democrat from Wisconsin answered…2wks

Aid should be given but there has to be some common sense guidelines to prevent abuse. Maybe incorporate some sort of community service as a requirement....just giving out free money, crisis or not didnt seem to help just created a lot of abuse

@97L686L from Georgia answered…3wks

Yes, but the focus of the aid should be directed to citizen individuals and small/local businesses. Large corporations have repeatedly used aid meant for employees to line the pockets of their upper ranks

@97JXKS5 from California answered…3wks

Yes, the government should intervene to boost a recovery and in the form of assisting sectors most heavily hit by the recession.

@97JW52S from California answered…3wks

All depends on how bad things are, because these so called stimulus aid packages only takes money yet again from the HARD working tax payer. Let the politicians pay from their overinflated salaries. They are supposed to be working FOR the PEOPLE. Not becoming multi millionaires from the PEOPLE

@7PTCG38Democrat from Wisconsin answered…3wks

Yes, but in the forms of assisting sectors most heavily hit by the recession and tax breaks for low and middle income citizens

@97GMYHZDemocrat from Washington D.C. answered…3wks

Yes - intervene people who lose jobs, low-income people and sectors that are heavily hit by the recession.

@97GJQLG from Kansas answered…3wks

@97FS4JH from Alabama answered…3wks

Food banks, reduced living costs, and public work, such as the tva dam project should be offered

@97CZZ75Democrat from Kansas answered…3wks

Stimulus should be TARGETED to those that most need it, and to infrastructure projects, i.e., the New Deal (roads, bridges, canals, city water infrastructure, et al).
