Randy and Stephanie have a post up at truthdig. In contrast to Warren Mosler's more comprensive program that includes a FICA suspension, block grants to states and a job guarantee, they focus on employment assurance, aka job guarantee (JG) and employer of last resort (ELR), as a primary means of addressing demand deficiency. MMT-based policy recommendations are getting out there.

UDATE: From the comments at truthdig (link)
“If a man doesn’t have a job or an income, he has neither life nor liberty nor the possibility for the pursuit of happiness. He merely exists.”“Oh America, how often have you taken necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes… God never intended for one group of people to live in superfluous inordinate wealth, while others live in abject deadening poverty.
“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.“We need to be concerned that the potential of the individual is not wasted,” he wrote. “New forms of work that enhance the social good will have to be devised for those for whom traditional jobs are not available.”
