Could you receive a fourth stimulus check? Momentum grows for recurring payments
Stimulus, infrastructure spending may only create ‘short-term’ economic boost: Former Carlyle Group CEO
Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin provides insight into the SPAC boom, more government spending, and his race for governor of Virginia.
A growing number of Democrats are calling on President Biden to send recurring stimulus checks for low-income Americans as part of his sweeping infrastructure package, arguing the cash payments are necessary until the U.S. economy fully recovers from the pandemic.
In a Tuesday letter addressed to the president, 21 senators ‒ led by Ron Wyden of Oregon ‒ asked the administration to automatically extend unemployment insurance benefits and send recurring direct checks that would be tied to certain economic conditions.
Text of the letter first emerged at the beginning of March, but the lawmakers waited until they had received additional support to officially send it to the White House. In the span of one month, the coalition secured the backing of another 11 Democrats, including Sen. Majority Whip Dick Durbin and moderates like Sens. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., Gary Peters, D-Mich., and Jack Reed, D-R.I.
