"Strong majorities of U.S. voters across the political spectrum support an array of progressive policy proposals that would provide immediate relief to those affected by the coronavirus outbreak, including two weeks of paid sick leave, free vaccinations, and free comprehensive healthcare for all.
That’s according to new survey results released Monday by progressive polling outfit Data for Progress and advocacy group The Justice Collaborative. The groups described their package of proposals as an alternative to the "neoliberal, go-it-alone policies adopted by both major parties over the last 40 years."
"To be clear—two weeks is not long enough given the likely duration of this crisis. The CDC has recommended cancelling events with fifty or more people for the next eight weeks."

The poll showed that U.S. voters favor far more expansive coronavirus relief than what’s contained in the bill passed Saturday by the Democrat-controlled House. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act provides two weeks of paid sick leave for just 20% of workers and limits family leave pay to two-thirds of the employee’s regular rate. The Republican-controlled Senate is expected to vote on the measure as early as Monday."
