“We have an enormous fiscal plan. It is at least $800 billion and maybe more”

The United States could pump $800-B or more into the economy to minimize damage from the coronavirus outbreak if Congress passes a payroll tax holiday through year end, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Monday.

We have an enormous fiscal plan. It’s at least $800 billion and maybe more,” Mr. Kudlow told reporters, totaling up actions already taken and tacking on President Trump’s proposed tax relief.

We have roughly $400-B in … fiscal assistance” already in the pipeline, Mr Kudlow said.

Asked in a TV interview if the United States economy was headed for a recession, Mr. Kudlow did acknowledge the pain the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 was having across the country.

We are being challenged. It’s going to be tough,” he said.

Congress has to get going and support the President’s policies, Now.

Have a healthy day
