BILL HEMMER (ANCHOR): You know, Dave, you come from an interesting perspective. You talk to Americans across the country every day on your radio program. What do you believe is the right number or the right answer for a -- for the next stimulus check? 

DAVE RAMSEY (GUEST): Well, I don't believe in a stimulus check because if $600 or $1400 changes your life, you were pretty much screwed already. You got other issues going on. You have a career problem, you have a debt problem, you have a relationship problem, you have a mental health problem. Something else is going on if $600 changes your life. And that's not talking down to folks. I've have been bankrupt, I've been broke, and I work with people every day who are hurting. I love people, I want people to be lifted up. But this is, again, it is just political rhetoric and it's just throwing dollars out there. It's peeing on a forest fire. It's absolutely ridiculous.
