The economy of America entered a recession as soon as the coronavirus epidemic started, and unemployment shot up to 14.8 percent, the worst level since 1948 when the records began. According to information from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the government of the States responded by passing a number of stimulus checks that have kept 11 million countrymen out of the poverty line.
Although the immediate consequences of the COVID epidemic have now subsided, inflation, which reached its greatest level in more than 40 years in 2022, has emerged as a new danger to the economy. Some are advocating for more stimulus to help offset the strain this is placing on Americans’ finances.
Many Governors From Different States Are Still Trying For More Stimulus Checks
Although the economy of the country has been relatively strong overall during the previous year, many federal legislators are asking for some stimulus checks because of occasional symptoms of weakening. The larger child tax credit and mortgage assistance programs have all come to an end, along with the surging inflation rate, which has greatly increased the basic living cost for many Americans. Some Americans have also been plunged again into a state of uncertainty if the economy enters a recession as some experts predict.
In light of this, a number of legislative proposals have been put up over the previous years, however, none of them have taken off. For instance, in the month of March 2021, 21 governors and senators signed a petition asking for continuous, monthly stimulus payments to Americans, however, nothing came of it.
The current administration is worried if more Stimulus checks are going to make things better for the common citizens or will increase inflation only. Therefore, the Administration hasn’t announced any more of these checks for now.
However, states like California, Delaware, Indiana, and many more are providing these checks for their state taxpayers from their surplus budget.
