In order to try to help them cope with the coronavirus epidemic, Utah Senator Mitt Romney is proposing legislation that would put $1000 into the pockets of every American.

In a series of proposals outlined by Romney (R-Utah) on Monday, the senator suggested that Congress go beyond the measures taken in the House coronavirus response package.

“Every American adult should immediately receive $1,000 to help ensure families and workers can meet their short-term obligations and increase spending in the economy,” the Utah Republican wrote.

“Congress took similar action during the 2001 and 2008 recessions. While expansions of paid leave, unemployment insurance, and SNAP benefits are crucial, the check will help fill the gaps for Americans that may not quickly navigate different government options.”

Romney’s other policy proposals included providing grants to small businesses and allowing loan deferments for recent graduates impacted by the virus.

Asked by The NY Post whether the proposal would involve recurring payments similar to the platform of former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, a spokeswoman for Romney said that his idea “is a one-time payment intended to help families and individuals with immediate needs, not a broader UBI proposal.”

Yang, who dropped out of the presidential race after poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire, ran his campaign around the issue of universal basic income (UBI).
