As the holiday shopping season intensifies, many people have gone to Twitter to express their displeasure with the lack of a fourth stimulus check, with some even advocating for a regular, monthly payment.
On social media, Americans who are yearning for economic security are appealing for a $1,000 or $2,000 stimulus check before Christmas and the New Year.
“One or Two stimulus checks is a comedy but not #BuildingBackBetter,” a furious Twitter user said.
“Give folks a New Beginning, $2,000 for the first month, then $1,000 for the Upcoming five months,” they recommended.
“For low-income people, SSI recipients, seniors, and others, that’s life-changing.”
A different Twitter user retweeted First Lady Jill Biden’s message on the White House’s magnificent Christmas decorations.
“It would help if individuals on SSI got a 4th and 5th 2000 dollars,” the respondent added, adding that the holidays should be “over” because of the economic pressures.
“Like everyone else, we have to pay our rent payment and eat,” bemoaned the user.
Another user inquired, “Where are our $2000 stimulus payments that we were all promised?”
Three separate stimulus packages have been enacted since the outbreak began.
The first comprised $1,200 in direct payments, while the second provided $600 in direct payments to Americans.
A fourth stimulus cheque from the federal government is currently improbable.
As Covid instances resurface across the United States, over three million individuals have signed a petition requesting a $2,000 settlement payment.
If it meets its target of three million signatures, the petition pushing Congress to approve monthly stimulus cheques for Americans would become one of the most popular.
Although the chances of further stimulus checks being approved by Washington politicians are slim, support for the Change.org petition “$2000/month to every American #moneyforthepeople #covid19” is increasing.
The petition requests that Congress “assist” families by providing $2,000 payments for adults and $1,000 payments for children, as well as “continued monthly checks for the length of the crisis.”
