The peasants might now get $2000 each. The rich and well connected get much more via PPP forgivable loans and let's not forget the Fed injecting trillions to those well deserving millionaires and billionaires.Why stop at $2000 each, Bernie says he can do $200000 each.
At this point, I would not mind seeing the $2,000 payments paid for with a windfall profits tax on Amazon and others that made bank because of the lockdowns.

I am now all for wealth tax so that people who benefit from lockdowns would be somehow screwed.
The true free enterprise solution would be to open everyone back up
That may be closer than you think. Many transportation companies that service non-emergency transportations for hospitals, taxis and other semi scheduled or on-demand markets have given up on the free enterprise aspect of business serving the public, due to excess rules and fees. They now seek government contracts and subsidies. It is painful to watch.As to my original point, Amazon did not outcompete everyone on a free and open market - Amazon got a serious advantage from government rules destroying their competition. To call "commie" when one suggests Amazon needs to pay for that advantage is incorrect (no one suggested the gov own Amazon, just tax it. So maybe call me "Fascist.") And a "windfall profits tax" is not a "wealth tax," I do not want to tax Amazon because they have wealth to tax, I want to tax the income they received merely because the gov chose to let them stay open while the gov closed Amazon competitors. Same with Walmart, Target, Lowes, and Home Depot...
