More Than Two Million Sign Petition Calling For Monthly Stimulus Checks
Blogged by: @RaquelHarristv
More than two million people have signed a petition calling for monthly #stimulus checks.
The #pandemmy ain’t over, so where’s my next #stimmy? That’s what many are wondering as we put the last bits of our stimulus check toward bills and other needs. A Change.org petition created by #StephanieBonin is calling for #Congress to dish out monthly $2,000 stimulus checks to those struggling during the pandemic. So far, Americans have only been given three checks – one for $1,200, a second for $600, and a third for $1,400.
The petition’s goal is three million signatures, and they are already at 2,045,940. Bonin, a restaurant owner in Denver, addressed the petition to the Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, stating a bill should be passed giving “$2,000 payments for adults and $1,000 payment for kids” for the duration of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We need immediate checks and recurring payments so that we can keep our heads above water,” the petition read.
