Through an online petition, over four million signatures have been collected in support of a fourth stimulus check.
This has piqued the interest of many Americans, who are eagerly awaiting the responses of Congress and the Senate.
5,000 low-income households, on the other hand, will receive $500 payments each month in addition to the stimulus funds.
The checks have been shown to be an effective means of poverty alleviation. This money is used to pay for things like food, medicine, and rent. It enhanced recipients’ well-being by reducing anxiety and depression. It lowers the unemployment rate by providing immediate financial relief.
Many Americans, however, still require a fourth stimulus. After the federal government failed to announce or approve a fourth stimulus check, nearly 4 million signatures were collected in support of a fourth stimulus check.
Stephanie Bonin, the owner of a Denver restaurant, started today’s most popular online petition, which has so far received 2,953,018 signatures out of its 3 million goals. To assist Americans in the midst of the pandemic, Bonin proposed recurring $2,000 checks over the course of the epidemic.
