Listen, show me the money honey cuz WE DESEVE!!
According to Business Insiders, Americans could be receiving an additional $2,000 a month on top of the stimulus check they’ve just received.
Under an all new Emergency Money for the People Act, US citizens who are 16 or older — and make less than $130,000 a year — would receive cash payments from the federal government for at least six months and until unemployment falls to pre-pandemic levels. The plan also entails $500 per child, with the money deliverable via direct deposit, check, or mobile apps such as Venmo.
More than 22 Million Americans have filed for unemployment over the past four weeks.
This new bill was introduced this week by former presidential candidate Rep. Tim Ryan and Rep. Ro Khanna, the former cochair of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ recently suspended campaign for president. It has 17 other cosponsors, all Democrats, including Rep. Barbara Lee, who helps lead the House Steering and Policy Committee.
“A one-time, $1,200 check isn’t going to cut it,” Khanna said. “Americans need sustained cash infusions for the duration of this crisis in order to come out on the other side alive, healthy, and ready to get back to work.”
Let’s get this plan in motion and into the hands of the hard working people that deserve it and need it the most.
