I understand working parents, that happens in all districts, but some parents choose lunch hours to socialize instead of paying some time back at the school once a month or so. Culture changes when results are not seen.
In the case of a cash handout vs mortgage relief and rent relief, I could go either way, but if we are talking about 6 week increments of evaluation, I have to go with the Cash. 6 weeks and 3K (family of 4 ) sounds better than my mortgage at that time frame.
Huge chunks of that money is going to wasted on drugs, alcohol and sugar. Hookers and blow....Ultimately, it will land in the hands of banks who will feel little but can afford to suffer a bit as we all will. Ultimately, the children of today who prosper will face the burden of paying for the drugs, alcohol and sugar of those too dumb to either spend it wisely or raise taxpaying citizens.
You are absolutely sure about that? All these people who have crushing student debt? All these people who can not afford rent? All these people who can not afford to pay rent? What do you think will happen when banks and landlords and utility companies and banks tell us that we have to pay more because they gave us a break? Happens every time. They "help" but then demand pay back for "helping" us.
You also seem to forget that many people have been putting off non-essential medical and dental procedures because we have no money. That means huge chunks of money will be spent on things like dental care and mole removal and pain management and eye care and such. I know I will getting some dental work and new glasses, IF we get any money at all.
