So McConnell thinks that people are voluntarily staying home because they’re lazy bums? Versus people being at home because they lost their jobs due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The whole reason they came up with the $600 figure to begin with is because if we were to process each person individually, verify their previous income, etc… it’s 40 million people. It would take hundreds of thousands of clerks several months. So they seized on $600, because that was the average and all the checks could go out quickly.
