Yes. Collectivize industries and reform from hierarchical company structures to things like coops, assist hard hit sectors, promote programs to get people to work along with ubi, and higher taxes on rich and confiscate profits from those who profit from economic downturns and disasters

Yes, but the current way of doing it is garbage. Cut all foreign aid and all aid that goes to large corporations and give it to lower-income American people who can't work during the pandemic.

@9RBQLBNVeteran from Mississippi answered…2wks

Yes, but as pay for jobs to benefit the country such as infrastructure improvements, neighborhood and public cleanup, etc.

@9R6DYKLIndependent from Nevada answered…3wks

Yes, but it is not sustainable, so there needs to be action to restart the economy in other ways, such as providing opportunities to start new businesses or create new jobs.

@9LLR88ZVeteran from Idaho answered…3mos

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…3mos

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

@9LKBF8TConstitution from California answered…3mos

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…3mos

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…3mos

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…3mos

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…3mos

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

@9JTSBS9Independent from Virginia answered…3mos

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…3mos

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

@T6QRHMVeteran from Arizona answered…3mos

Universal basic income would eliminate the need for a stimulus.

Yes, but it should not be counted towards your income Tax return.

@9HYC9ZWTranshumanist from New York answered…3mos

@9HVD5KVVeteran from Utah answered…3mos

Yes but not allow items to be included that have nothing to do with the problem.

@9HRTGQ4Republican from Nevada answered…3mos

It varies, and should be looked at by a case by case scenario.

@9HQRPLDDemocrat from New Mexico answered…3mos

Yes, but no more than twice, only in times of extreme situations like right now. And also implement an income tax break for all of those who make $450k annually and less for at least two years.

@9HQ4SWSWorking Family from Oklahoma answered…3mos

Yes, but only in situations where people physically cannot go to work as in the COVID crisis.

No, but only when a universal income is in place to protect low income citizens

@9HM8T2ZGreen from New York answered…3mos

@9HJKT3CSocialist from Kentucky answered…3mos

Yes, but only to citizens and rescind all tax breaks to all corporations

@PepperflyVeteranfrom Idaho  answered…3mos

No. Change the banking industry to mitigate recessions; convert and eliminate dubious compounding interest loans to simple interest only to help debtors free up money that they can then spend in the economy, rather than allowing the companies that get bailed out to keep ripping off consumers of their stimulus money.

@9HHTRNWTranshumanist from Connecticut answered…3mos

Yes, but in the form of employing those furloughed and unemployed for community service projects

@9HHS4DTWorking Family from Michigan answered…3mos

@9HFXN29Constitutionfrom Guam  answered…3mos

Yes, in the form of tax cuts in areas such as VAT and company tax

@9HFH6W7Veteran from New York answered…3mos

Yes, but do not provide any income restrictions and only give it to tax payers.

@9HFCT6YLibertarian from Illinois answered…3mos

Only when the recession is the governments fault, such as the unnecessary COVID shutdown.

@Austin-U-(SoapOn…Green from Texas answered…3mos

Yes, but it should be focused more on keeping people afloat, not businesses. Invest in people.

@9H862YMPeace and Freedom from New York answered…3mos

Yes, but in the form of tax breaks for all citizens and alleviating any current bills for a temporary amount of time so there isn't stress about not only taxes, but paying things off currently as well

@9H7S4J3Transhumanist from Texas answered…3mos

Yes, but the government should also reduce spending during recessions to keep the national debt from skyrocketing during the recession
