Republican nominee for U.S. Senate Lauren Witzke Thursday announced her plan for economic recovery in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“With excessive lockdowns, which have now been denounced even by the World Health Organization, Democrats including Governor Carney have cost millions of Americans their jobs, decimated small businesses, and consolidated the power multinational globalist companies like Amazon and Walmart,” Witzke said. “But I have a plan get us back on track.”
“Through my Retirement Reinvestment Initiative (RRI) and monthly Direct COVID-19 payments to every American, not only will we survive this pandemic, but we will come out the other side stronger, and we will thrive,” she continued.
Combined with ending the excessive lockdowns, the Retirement Reinvestment Initiative will stimulate the economy and promote the restoration of small businesses by allowing Americans to withdraw up to half of their 401k savings tax free in order to start or invest in a new small business, or reopen a small business that has closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Though this plan can never restore all of the millions of jobs and hundreds of thousands of small businesses that have been lost over the past seven months, it will give Americans options to get back on their feet,” Witzke said. “Small businesses have always been the lifeblood of the American economy, and it is crucial that we give Americans the tools necessary to open small businesses.”
Further, Ms. Witzke understands that Americans are struggling now, and they need immediate assistance to feed their families and pay their most basic bills, like rent, electricity, heat, and others. To address the immediate needs of Delawareans and the American people, Ms. Witzke will pursue legislation for $1200/month direct payments to all Americans until they can resume life as normal.
“Congress has voted to print trillions of dollars in stimulus money during the COVID-19 pandemic, but I am concerned that very little of that money has ended up in the pockets of the Americans people themselves,” Witzke said. “Instead of passing bills packed with billions of dollars of pork for special interests, it’s time for Congress to focus directly on the American people, and pass a clean bill that will provide $1200 per month to every American until the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us.”
