Jeff Pooja look come on news Well, analysts have now had a closer look at President elect Joe Biden's unveiled $1.9 Trillion coronavirus plan bankrate dot com senior economic analyst Mark Hamrick with that closer look and talked about it with Cuomo's time I learned last evening, the Rice, the president elect said that the Asian faces this crisis of deep human suffering. Did he say anything that made you feel like There's a way out of that crisis. Well, I think the question is how much of a whole do we dig? Before we get to the end of this tunnel that has the light at the end of it, and And you know, the whole was still pretty deep.

And you know, $75,000 goes a lot farther in my hometown back in the day of in southeast Kansas, when it does here in Washington, D C or where. You are Tom. But let's put it this way. Half of households have lost income during this downturn. As you know, we had more than 18 million on some form of unemployment insurance and the report we got this week. On DSA. Many people were financially fragile coming into this and that fragility has turned into a crisis of late, so it'll help people in need of help. For those who don't quote unquote need to help it will help the broader economy. And ultimately, that helps everybody because it lifts that that economy adds to job security, boost consumer spending and helps those who have really been on the edge or fell over it.
