Facebook Young: Not passing another relief bill could be costlier in the long run Twitter CoronavirusIndianaLocalNews Twitter WhatsApp By Network Indiana – August 7, 2020 1 468 Pinterest (Photo supplied/U.S. Senator Todd Young) The price of doing nothing, and not passing another coronavirus relief bill, could be way more costly than the possible price tag of what has been proposed so far, said Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.). He said people who are fiscally conservative should be looking at those long-term costs.“Fiscally conservative people need to contemplate the cost of doing nothing,” said Young, by phone from DC. “What is the cost of the barber shop from down the road going out of business? Well, a number of barbers and the owner will be on public assistance. What is the cost of an entire manufacturing operation going out of business? Well, it’s long-term unemployment. It’s disability insurance. It’s food stamps.”One of the hang-ups in negotiations is the price of the bill, which is a problem for Young’s fellow senator and fellow Republican, Mike Braun.“I know this is a difficult thing for conservatives to ask themselves, but are you truly a conservative if you support voting no on something that will keep somebody off public assistance?” asked Young. “We don’t want to be penny wise and pound foolish. We need to make the necessary investments now, whatever the sticker price may seem to be.”Young prioritized what Republicans want in the bill. He said first is liability protections for businesses, so they can’t be sued easily if people get coronavirus by working or shopping there. He said making sure schools can make it safe for kids to go back to school is next.The third point is helping hardest-hit businesses. Young said his RESTART Act will help with that. He said half of the Senate have signed on as co-sponsors.“That will provide long-term working capital loans to help out our restaurants and our boutiques, manufacturing operations, these businesses that have to survive the pandemic because they are engines of our economy.”Young said the Act is part of some fierce negotiations in which both Ds and Rs are playing hardball.“I do believe that (House Speaker ) Nancy Pelosi has calculated that she will benefit from the chaos that might emerge if we don’t end up passing a bill,” he said, “then she’ll end up pushing through her Green New Deal, higher taxes, significantly higher spending.”Young said he believes the president’s threat to take executive action to push out some sort of relief action, is a way to put pressure on both sides.“He wants to apply pressure to both sides, that is the administration and the treasury secretary on one side and Nancy Pelosi on the other, to come to terms and find a deal, and I agree with the president.”Young said he believes whatever bill may come out of the negotiations would contain more “stimulus ” payments for people.

Press Association The Foxes have shocked the Barclays Premier League this season and could go top if they win at Newcastle on Saturday. If Arsenal also drop points at West Brom, victory will take Leicester top before current leaders Manchester City face Liverpool in the late kick-off. They are third, just a point behind City, but are set to face them, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea before the end of the year a nd Ranieri is wary before they reach his pre-season target of 40 points. “We know every match is a trap,” he said. “I know there will be some matches when we don’t take a point but maybe the next we’ll take a point. We are looking for 15 points and we are fighting for these 15 points. After, maybe we can change our minds. “I want to understand this team. We have played 12 matches and after January we can speak more clearly about Leicester.” Jamie Vardy will equal Ruud van Nistelrooy’s Barclays Premier League record if he recovers from a hip injury to score in a 10th straight game, with Van Nistelrooy having set the record while at Manchester United in 2003. Vardy broke into the England squad in the summer and Ranieri wants Danny Drinkwater and Marc Albrighton to follow him. Manchester United rookie Jesse Lingard and Tottenham’s Ryan Mason were squad replacements for Tuesday’s win over France after Vardy, Michael Carrick and Fabian Delph dropped out injured. Mason has started just four league matches compared to Lingard’s one while midfielders Drinkwater and Albrighton have played in every Foxes game a nd Ranieri wants the pair to get recognition. “I hope so because if these two players like Drinkwater and Albrighton can follow him (Vardy) it means Leicester are at the top,” he added. Boss Claudio Ranieri has warned Leicester they could be walking into a trap ahead of their games with the big boys.
Dear Editor,The Caribbean Voice (www.caribvoice.org) joins with other non-government organisations (NGO) and women’s rights organisations in calling upon Carib Beer to go beyond a public apology in expressing their contribution for the awful ad that was both offensive and insensitive to women and gender-based violence victims and activists in Guyana and the rest of the Caribbean.We call upon Carib Beer and all companies regionally to take steps to sensitise all staff about gender-based violence. In the context of Guyana, TCV has already held sensitisation workshops with a few companies while a number of others have also requested such workshops. We also call upon Carib Beer to concretely support the efforts of activists regionally to address gender-based violence via support of training and sensitisation efforts.In this latter regard, Carib Beer should consider coming on board the annual anti-violence candlelight vigil, which focuses on various forms of violence including domestic violence and related issues such as suicide, sexual abuse, child abuse and elderly abuse and which does not require any significant financial layout. Set for September 9 this year, this vigil is on the verge of becoming a Region wide event, with St Vincent and Trinidad and Tobago coming on board this year and plans on stream to reach out to other Caribbean nations to join in from next year.Details of this vigil are available at – http://caribvoice.org/voices-against-violence.html – and we can be reached at [email protected] or via our domestic violence outreach coordinator, Livasti Bhooplall, on telephone number 644-5901.Sincerely,The Caribbean Voice
