Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is trying to convince Donald Trump to veto any coronavirus stimulus bill that would provide cash payments to the American people.

Lindsey Graham doesn’t want people to get cash payments as nearly 630,000 people in 15 states have filed new unemployment claims:

The cash payments that the Trump administration is talking about, which are $1,000 for each person and $500 for each child, are not going to be nearly to help people by the time the checks are issued. People need more than one $1,000 check with an option for a second if the emergency continues.

People need real help today.

Lindsey Graham’s suggestion would guarantee that the nation slips into a recession. The aid that the Trump administration is proposing is not enough, but doing absolutely nothing in terms of providing the American people much-needed cash is a great way to turn an epidemic into an economic catastrophe.
