Treasury Secretary Mnuchin Discusses Timing for Coronavirus Support Funds For Workers and Business…

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin calls-in to Maria Bartiromo to discuss some of the details within the coronavirus relief bill, including the ‘when’ and ‘how’ funds will be distributed.

On the business side Secretary Mnuchin is standing up a new funding mechanism for small businesses within the Small Business Administration (SBA).  The treasury is using the architecture of the ¹FDIC to be the point of contact for businesses who need short-term bridge funds to help carry them.  On the worker side the direct payments to middle-class workers should arrive in two to three weeks.  Excellent Interview:


¹That is really smart.  All FDIC insured lenders can operate as point of contact lenders for small businesses that need emergency funding.  That means instead of navigating the matrix of big government, a business owner can just go to their local bank and get the funds.  The FDIC, already in a relationship with the bank, back-stops the funding while treasury underwrites the lending (a loan without payback).  Brilliant approach.

    What about Coronavirus Support Funds For Joe Biden? His need is certainly greatest as he needs to have his whole brain made right and as momentous job as that would be doesn’t come cheap.

      It’s very smart. Besides many government workers are already sitting at home on administrative-weather leave waiting for their new government laptops to arrive, along with secure high speed internet connections, so they can work from home.

      One way that I have been looking at this mirrors and expands on your comment.
      The Tarp program was a stimulas by the Globalist Uniparty, to benefit the phony Wall Street Economic engine.

      The CARE prorams are a stimulas by PDJT, to benefit the MAIN STREET Economic engine.

      PDJT is even strengthening the ‘alternative’ banking sector, at the expense of the globalists.
      Small business DO NOT go to the buerocracy, nor do they go to the bigger than too big to fail BIG banks; they go to their small, regional banks which will funnel 10’s of millions or Billions of $ to these small businesses. These small banks will no doubt be ‘strengthed’ with this infusion of business, and yet the banks themselves are assuming no risk, hence they are STRENGTHENED.

      Sundance wrote an article awhile back, on how one of PDJT’s many initiatives that has flown “under the radar” because of TDS distraction, is a program to build up an “alternative banking” sector. An Alternative to the Big, too bigger to fail WALL STREET banking sector it is SMALLER, local and regional banks.

      Point is, while a lot of attention was paid to Pelosi’s attempt to pack the bill with HER pork, and Republicons undoubtedly tried to stuff some in, ….

      PDJT got in some key things which further his MAGA agenda, and deny the Wall street things it would want, while getting this aid package through.

      No stock buy backs, and the two big to fails don’t get one cent of most of this $.
      The checks to individuals direct tdeposited, so they don’t get any of THAT, either.

      This really is an opposite if TARP, in many ways; he is addressing the crises, and ISN’T “letting this crises go to waste”, as he structures the aid to further his MAGA agenda, on numeous fundamental levels setting up to SUPERCHARGE an already historically unprecedented phenominally positive economy.

      IF the release of this virus was ingtentional, or if it was an act of nature his enemies are attempting to Capitalise on it doesn’t matter.

      Once again, and probably in the biggest way yet, their plan is turned on its head, they faceplant and PDJT wins, once again!

      “Hah! NOW we’ve FINALLY got Trump right where he WANTS us!, Wha?,…Hey!”

      This flop may be even bigger than Muh Russia, or Muh Ukraine, combined.

        45 and his Team of Patriots set up 5% commission to BANKS (big and small) so $100k loan brings in $5k to bank…not too shabby but of course they have to do the work which is fair…small business will be able to choose whether to use the funds for employees or capital improvements or both! loved how 45 said yesterday, sure the restaurant may close but hopefully another will take its place…ie, we need business flowly…up down..side to side…

        in the past, GOVERNMENT SET UP GARBAGE SYSTEMS…look at CDC deliberately failing at test kits…45 went to PRIVATE SECTOR and said getter done!

      My guess….Senate has a Republican majority and is on speaking terms with the White House. The Speaker of the House can’t even bring herself to say the President’s name let alone negotiate a deal with him. You can’t negotiate with people who aren’t talking to you.

      I presume your confusion (like mine) was that all “money bills” must originate in the House.

      I have concluded this could properly start in the Senate because there is not one single revenue raising line in the entire bill. It SPENDS $2 trillion plus, but not one penny is pad for.

        Remember too that they used a bill previously passed by the House, stripped it of its contents, inserted new contents, passed it, and sent it back to the House for concurrence. So in Congress-speak, this bill technically did originate in the House, even though it looked entirely different. That’s how far we’ve strayed from the intentions of our founders.

        The Senate hollowed out another bill that had already passed the House (simply replaced all language, including the title, by amendment). From a practical perspective, the requirement that spending bills originate in the House is virtually a dead-letter, as the Senate can just take a different House bill, replace all the language with different text and vote it out that way.

        I suppose if the House simply passed nothing at all, the Senate couldn’t do this. But that’s not realistic either.

      Flip of the coin. Either chamber could have written it first. Same result either way,
      Usually, starting these must-pass bills in the Senate moves faster. Senators insist on being the last word, so give it to them first.

    If the President is supporting this (there is no evidence to the contrary) then he already knows the downstream results will benefit him politically and that means it benefits us.
    Everything Mnuchin has done as Treasury Secretary has thus far benefitted the MAGA effort.

    I don’t like the size of this bill nor the blatantly unrelated Pork that it contains, but have no reasonable choice but to stay fully on board the MAGA / KAG train.

    At the appropriate future time, IMHO, the President will call out the DemonRATs for their crass and blatantly political extortion of the American people in this bill.

    Another example of divine intervention.
    At the outset of his Presidency, PDJT assembled his team of Wolverines.

    Of all his cabinet, he has probably worked the most, in time, detail and scope with this team, from day one on his trade reset.

    So, they were already ‘stood up’, had vadt experience working WITH him, negotiating FOR,him, to give HIM just what he wants.

    They were well versed in supply chain, and negotiating deals involving Billions and Trillions, and in short were perfectly positioned and primed to set up this “wartime responce”.

    Coincidence,…..or divine intervention?

    As a small business owner, I feel I have an incredible advocate in not only PDJT, but Secretary Mnuchin, and the entire economic team, that is not only confronting this issue, but the consequences of decades of America-last trade negotiations.

    What are the odds that DJT’s legacy will be to exit the presidency with many similarities to GW’s: massive economic downturn; massive increase if Federal Debt; massive regulatory intrusion by the Feds into the market economy; and massive Fed Reserve involvement in many financial sectors.

    The Virus is not Trump’s fault, much like the 2008 financial meltdown was not GW’s, but the story could very end the same way where we end up with BO 2.0.

    For the sake of our country, pray for a quick turn around of the virus, the economy, and Fed expansion.

    I’m not clear on this. Does everyone get a check, or just those in the affected industries?
    I have a job. I’m in the trucking business. I’m not going anywhere (well, figuratively speaking of course).
    A quick aside: I ask people, “What’s the oldest profession?” Contrary to public belief, it’s not THAT. Long before that, people needed goods moved from here to there. Trucking is the oldest profession.
    Anyways, back to it. I have a steady paycheck coming in. Sure, it would be nice to have a little extra cash thrown my way, but I don’t NEED it. Others do need it. My neighbors, for example, of whom I commented a day or two ago. They’re on the sidelines for the duration, nothing coming in.
    If I get a check, I’m not going to keep it. I’m going to put it where I think it will do some good. My neighbors, perhaps. After all, they are cat people, so….
    As my favorite President says, “We’ll see.”

    This is a great summary of the payroll protection program. Essentially free money for 8 weeks of payroll plus other “regular” expenses. DJT and Mnuchin just gave us a two month reprieve from having to shutter businesses. Let’s hope the Democrat/MSM combine determined to wreck our economy fails well before that.
