New Stimulus Program Needed

It should be obvious by now that a new stimulus program is needed in the U.S.   Critics  argued from the beginning that the 2009 stimulus package would not be big enough.  The critics have been proved right as the recovery from the 2008 financial melt-down is still far from complete.

A new economic stimulus package from the new Congress should be part of the Democratic platform adopted in Philadelphia.  People are hurting, even as a relative minority are doing marginally better.

Such a plan will help put a dent in the Trump candidacy, should he survive as the nominee after the Republican convention.  Even if he fails to be nominated, the Democrats not some kind of program to get this country really moving again.  The details can be worked out.  But the message must go out:  Democrats are willing to do something meaningful to lessen the pain of economic dislocation and suffering.
