Vice-President Kamala Harris has angered Americans by announcing that the $2,000 stimulus payments are still due. The stimulus payments were never implemented. For making false claims for $2,000 stimulus cheques, Kamala Harris is facing the wrath of the public.
According to the US Sun, President Biden has decided against launching the fourth round of stimulus. The Americans, on the other hand, appear hell-bent on forcing the government to implement extra checks.
According to the US Sun, Kamala Harris tweeted in May 2020, “I’m proposing $2,000 monthly payments throughout the epidemic and for three months following because rent and bills are still due throughout this crisis and people are going hungry.
Over 80 Democrats raised their hands in unison to propose periodic payments to American residents. The public’s main point of contention was the failure of the Build Back Better bill, which promised a continuation of the stimulus benefits.
Three Stimulus Checks Have Been Distributed to Citizens
Citizens have already received three stimulus payouts. The stimulus payments are part of the Economic Impact Payments program; the first batch contained $1,200 checks to low-income families who were disproportionately affected by the pandemic.
In the second set of payments, the government issued $600 at the start of 2021. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) distributed $1,400 in checks and direct transfers to qualified households.
The stimulus funds benefited millions of people around the country. Citizens who have not yet received the money will receive a federal stimulus payment while completing their tax returns, according to the US Sun.
The Fourth Stimulus Checks Petition is gaining traction
The fourth stimulus check was in high demand as 2021 came to a close. Citizens petitioned for the introduction of $2,000 monthly payments. By the end of 2021, the petition had amassed millions of signatures.
With the proliferation of the omicron version across the United States, the restaurant owner who began the petition claims that it has grown in size. “I’m calling on Congress to support families with a $2,000 payment for adults and a $1,000 payment for kids immediately, and maintaining regular checks for the remainder of the crisis,” the petition stated, according to the US Sun.
The petition currently has 2,986,600 signatures. Congress, on the other hand, is unlikely to give this any consideration.
