100 thoughts on “Mnuchin on economic impact of efforts to slow the pandemic”

  • So….I force you to close your business, then you have to go through me to get a loan to reopen.  I saw this movie before, it was called "Goodfellas"

  • Now, don’t listen to Democrat’s. They know we are ready to make a blue wave to the right. But all house holds need to be in the package direct deposited. We are the Baby boomers Please include every American. We think it’s low for Democrats greed and as usual never done anything for The People. Took a stranger Trump to think quick on what about his people, Democrats setting at home silent. Now trying to control things. Yes we voted for Bush, why he cared doing his stimulus

  • After your 1200 check (if you even qualify for one) gl being on your own unemployed for 10 weeks before this clown goes back to Congress to ask for more crumbs for you. 10 weeks from now?!! Thats how long the next check might take or even longer? Game over America, your federal government has failed you. Thank god stock buyback opportunities and bail outs are coming because multi billion dollar corporations that have made billions in revenue over the last 10 years all of a sudden in a matter of a week of closure at best is worried about “going out of business”. I’ll call that bluff all day and if not, fk em let them deal with bankruptcy like every honest small business owner when things go bad. Part of life and part of capitalism

  • It will be 2 years before the economy gets back to where it was, if ever. In the post-COVID-19 world there will be more government regulation and socialism.

  • Interesting….Do the Unemployed get a check too?

    Most of this bailout money will be spread between the top families like Rockerfellers, Rothschilds and Morgans! Same families who own the Federal Reserve and where this “Emergency” money “due to the pandemic” comes from. I’ve said more than enough!

  • You telling me you still want to bailout corporate businesses in which the people's tax money goes to?? But we get ah big sh*t dropped on us.. wat if we just stopped supporting thier economic games an companies like airlines the gov'ment would actually take that stemulus into consideration…

  • Sanders is clueless……. he really has no idea where money comes from !!
    What a jackass.
    And where's joey Biden with some bright ideas?
    Oh, he doesn't even remember what country he lives in !! Lol

    Democrats are traitors to the American people and China is the world's ENEMY !!

  • Cancel Chinese debt to offset the cost of the Coronavirus and to punish China so it closes meat markets and helps to allow information and quarantine in their country to protect the world.

  • Food and money directly to Americans. Today. Zero bailouts to companies. It’s too late. Trickledown doesn’t work. Food, medicine , and cash TODAY! Directly to Americans.

  • Chris Schwanger says:

    Aid to the Ukraine or we'll throw a SNL impeachment hissy. Small biz SBA loans at 3.75 percent with your your house as collateral.

  • We don't need the government's money. We intend to take that money and investing it in our community by buying stock for the food bank, donating much needed supplies to the hospital etc. If you don't need the money, help your local community. Seamstresses in my city are sewing masks, the local distillery has switched to making alcohol for sanitizer for the hospital etc. There's a lot we can do to help our neighbors that have little to do with the government.

  • Pres. Trump will go down in History
    as the Greatest & Bravest President & Commander in Chief……his grasp of so many areas is just astonishing…
    GOD prepared exactly the right man
    Thankyou LORD GOD ALMIGHTY

  • American people are leaving God ALMIGHTY and Jesus Christ are only savior.out of tbere lifes will be a bad out come.we need to all as a nation turn back to God ALMIGHTY.pray pray and pray

  • Good way to make Big Government even bigger, when you will have even more private industry in your debt. Smart move on the administration's part.

  • William Ferrari says:

    This package will be for the same players it's always used for, banks, airlines, weapons manufacturers and corporations, if you think you're getting anything from the government think again, they don't work for you, they work for the banks and corporations. The fact that they're telling people you're going to get anything is a joke, people can't even get the unemployment they're entitled to.

  • Democrats stop virus bill they say china needs two trillion in bail outs democrsts claim that China is to big to fail.

  • why are the dems so anti to help the american people this stimulus bill should not be political the president has said get it done help the people pelosi is the cog in the wheel again , the utility comannys .direct tv verizon should be stepping up to the plate where are the state governrs? i saw mi gov on tv what a farce she said she lowered or recinded the hunting fishing license are you kidding?

  • This dude is not your friend he is waiting for you to not to able pay your mortgage then he will step in an foreclosure your ? this guy is a snake

  • There's nothing free in this world inflation from this is going the be fairly bad depending on how much funny money is being printed. This has been done before and it didn't really help anyone. Luckily though it didn't have a major negative effect as in increasing inflation drastically, let's hope that holds true again.
    As far as any business that moved their manufacturing over seas or across the borders should not get a dime of tax payer money…

  • Do you listen starting to sound like Rome. Bye-bye to our dollar. Get ready to say hello to globalize currency. Known as the mark of the beast in the Bible.

  • World Fish Cutting says:

    O All of our loans, mortgage o car loans and credit cards now frozen in everything! Why is not anyone talking about it!

  • Chris Wallace knows better then to spit about BS like he did. This President has responded to this problem better then any Democrat or Republican in the past would have done. If you don't believe it looks at Sander's & Biden's response too this issue.

  • Blue Planet Photo Studio says:

    Just to be clear on what you’re advocating, if you lift the temporary shutdown of businesses and go back to life as usual, we will end up like Italy. There is logic to banning things like concerts right now and I get it, but if you look at Italy, the massive spread was not due to everyone going to concerts, it was due to people going to restaurants and other public places and then taking the virus home to spread to the family – who then went to work and spread it to their co workers and on and on. Everything is a trade off and we can either make a heroic effort to save as many peoples lives as possible at the real expense of jobs or we can make a heroic effort to save as many jobs as possible during this pandemic at the real expense of lives.

  • Pawel []PWLOPR[] says:

    Demn If You Do – and demn if You Don't. This pandemic is a "perfect solution" to unburden pension plan's by killing of the people who are old or have other medical conditions. Democrats would love to be available making that accusations against the president. Think ! The Government needs Time to prevent overrunning hospitals ,to manufacture necessary equipment and supplies . To safe Your life's . This is a new kind of war- that No One was prepared for it .Obama and Biden new how bad is the system and Done NOTHING!. So count Your blessings for having Mr Trump as the president who gets things done !. If a democrat like Bloomberg or Biden was in the office he would be helping China in massive cover up. Or You could be a Canadian that have a leader who self isolate himself instead taking a simple test . So count Your blessing for You have a right man i the office!

  • Hildebeast Clinton says:

    The SARS-nCOV-19 virus started a global pandemic when Chinese people in the Wuhan province of China ate uncooked wild Bats containing the virus.

  • THEY ARE FIGHTING AGAIN THAT 1200 DOLLARS IS NOT ENOUGH FOR US…OKAY THEY ARE FIGHTING TO RELEASE 1.2 TRIL…WE ARE NOT THAT MANY ONLY 358 MIL…GIVE US EACH 1 MIL AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT US ANYMORE…"AFTER ALL IT IS TAX PAYERS MONEY" "MEANING IT IS OURS"…

  • Another Hank Paulson TBTF trickle down plan. This is so 2011, it makes you realize how much we are just tax cattle for Elites who created it.

    "We need new powers for the Fed. We need to hammer the last of the  US Treasury into the offshore tax dodges of the Rich Corporate:State!"

    This is so Reagan, so Bush, so crISIS.

    Hey, all I know is, I escaped the crud and am staying home until the Fed Uniform Basic Income check arrives!

    Bernie Care and AOC Free Money! MAGA!

  • thank God Comrad Sanders piped in with all his vast knowledge, never pass one single piece of legislation in his career in Government, his only work in life has been, government, or writing books about government. Which was likely ghost written as what experience does he have, 3 homes, millions of dollars from government trough. nice

  • So we have a small business, if we take the liquidity loan to pay the employees 2 weeks plus a little for overhead (rent is still due) but we have no money coming in, how do we know the loan will be forgiven? My guess is that when it comes time to forgive it there will suddenly be a problem or reason why we don't qualify.

  • Second Opinion says:

    B.S. ABOUT A SLOW RESPONSE. THE FIRST CASE IN THE U.S 1/21, TRAVEL BAN 1/31. IN THE 2009 PANDEMIC OBAMA WAITED 6 MONTHS AND THE FIRST 1,000 DEATHS(18,000 TOTAL DEATHS) TO DECLARE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY. IT WAS HORRIFIC. GOOGLE IT.

  • MIRANDA MIRANDA says:

    DEMOCRATS WHO HAVE BEEN CLAIMING AND PRAYING FOR A RECESSION, HERE THEY HAVE IT AND WITH A "BONUS" CORONAVIRUS, ENJOY IT IF YOU CAN!
    LOS DEMOCRATAS QUE HAN ESTADO ACLAMANDO Y ORANDO POR UNA RECESION, AQUI LA TIENEN Y CON UN GRAN "BONO" CORONAVIRUS, QUE LES APROVECHE!

  • Let's see how many people sign their souls over for a few $xxxx of "stimulus" checks. NOTHING is free! Strings are always attached. The moment you sign that check and cash it, is the moment you give consent for what the government is doing. They aren't here to "save" you. They are here to keep the ponzi scheme called the dollar going so they can steal whatever wealth you have left and deprive you of your rights under a "color of law" that contradicts the Constitution. But hey, you signed that check for a few $xxxxx. Accept the consequences for signing your soul over to the proverbial "devil".

  • Q: How come we're short on medical supplies?
    A: Because we're dependent on other countries for these medical supplies.

    Q: Why are we dependent on other countries for medical supplies?
    A: Because many American corporations have moved overseas.

    Q: Why did these corporations move overseas?
    A: Decades of higher taxes and regulations forced many businesses to leave.

    Q: Why were there higher taxes and regulations?
    A: Because Democrats have passed these laws and regulations through the last half-century.

    Q: Why did they do that?
    A: I don't know why you're asking me? Ask them. I'm just a 10 year old kid in 4th grade.

  • Let's all go on unemployment and just watch TV and eat Pizza. BTW, Mr. Mnuchin, where are you getting the money from!? My 4 year old makes more sense than you do.

  • The Great Satan says:

    I guess I'll take the free money except my wife is a nurse and I work in food delivery and we're doing better than before

  • It's nice to see a reporter asking questions that are not political gotcha..like the rest of the media. Thankyou Fox and John Roberts..i'm glad Wallace isn't on today..Wallace is so biased and annoying. I refuse to watch him.

  • The Lumpenproletariat says:

    $1,800,000,000,000 in stimulus?

    wow….you gotta think Milton Bradley eventually runs out of monopoly money, no?

    our fiat system isn't worth the numbers on the screen!

  • You are NOT providing help for small business' you are providing debt! If they take out a loan to pay their employees to stay home, then they later pay back the loan, that's not help.

  • Perry Cockerham says:

    For once the people should revolt this government and make them do the right thing. Make them pay people at the bottom then work their way up.. Economist know if you give to more to the bottom they put it back into the system. Like stacking blocks you build from the bottom up. If you start from the top there is no foundation and the block falls to the ground. It's the same with anything. Try building a house starting with the roof.. It seems as though you republicans keep trying the same thing expecting a different result. Isn't that the same thing as being a lunatic? Just wondering.. Because like the Republican tax reform giving the top 1% 82 % of 1 1/2 trillion dollars and the rest of the 99% just 18%.. But yet their are no republican asking why.. They call it voodoo economics for a reason. Go back to school all you republicans because you got your grades given to you so you would get a passing grade because the teachers didn't want to see or put up with you another year. Wonder why trumps fixer Cohen threatened the schools with lawsuits on behalf of trump. If I claimed to be a genius I wouldn't care who seen my records but now if I was proved to have an IQ of 74 in which trump has then I wouldn't want that out in the light. How do you bankrupt a casino? Anyone think of that? Almost impossible unless your skimming off the top.

  • CESAR GALLEGOS says:

    Mitch came on Fox and said that he was with the Republicans to make their plan and that the Democrats would make their own. So he set up the delay cause he knows that it would make the Democrats look bad. Truth, look at the GOP bill, its to put money in millionaires pockets. We saw that in the last bailout they just bought stock and didn't bring back the workforce. Let Shitybank fail. This baloon needed to deflate.

  • Bernie, time for you to either shut you mouth or set an example and sell 2 of your houses and donate all your book money to people who need help. But you won't. You and other democrats rather spend other people's hard earn money. Greedy SOB's

  • DON'T BE STUCK ON STUPID… i KNOW HOW TO STOP THIS VIRUS IN ONE WEEK … PLEASE CALL CAPT. GARY PYLANT6023159521

  • The medical industry is in the business of keeping everyone sick enough to need medicine but not too sick to work. We need to get rid of the FDA and abolish the requirement of a prescription to buy medicine. Doctors spend waaay to much time in school, it is not for learning, it is to reduce the number of doctors so they can all get rich on our illness.

  • All the problems in the US get their budgets from the taxpayers money in the treasury, including wars, including corporate welfare. The insurance companies don't pay a penny to help w the problems. Without taxes the entire US govt would collapse in an instance.

  • That's why they dropped rates to near 0%, they were planning on deploying Trillions to keep the economy/markets propped up! The Fed's own the USA! The borrower is slave to the debtor!

  • Assertive Karma says:

    It must be a conspiracy that we have only two political parties, and both of them are out of touch, incompetent, and potentially corrupt.

  • Assertive Karma says:

    How can our medical system be so broken, individuals without quality coverage, people bankrupt by medical bills, excessive costs, over pay… and they still need an excessive bailout also?

  • America needs to get working after the 15 day period. Time to readjusting the plan. At risk people for the most part are unemployed. We need to just give them the opportunity to stay home if employed. The rest of the people resume life as normal.

  • Mnuchin was partner with Soros.
    He a lot so bought a bank after 08 for pennies then foreclosed on hundreds of thousands.
    Hff e is also skull and bones.
    This is swamp
