Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah outlined a list of proposals in response to the coronavirus outbreak. One of which is giving all American adults $1,000 in response to fallout from the spread of the disease.  He feels it will be a way of keeping the economy stable in this environment.

“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,” a release from Romney’s office states, adding, “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.”
