Gov't to take bold steps

Bold steps? That means construction pork again, no? And what about these "cash payments to households"? What cash can the government pay me other than what took before in taxes?

Why I do not see anything about tax cuts in this article, if the government really wants to stimulate us?

What does that say on the hand rail at the top of the stairs?

”Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds after touching the handrail.”
