Stephanie Bonin Has Urged The Administration Not To Ghost Americans Of Their Stimulus Check
Stephanie Bonin, who started the biggest online petition which has collected almost 3M, has urged the federal administration, not to ‘ghost’ American families that are struggling to provide for even basic needs such as food, rent, and utilities.
Bonin has written that a majority of Americans have been ignored and left to fend for themselves. Worse still, they were given hope, and then had it taken away when they needed it the most.
She urged Congress not to ghost the citizens of America, that is depriving the underprivileged when they are most in need of further stimulus checks. She has asked for the stimulus check to be raised to $2,000 per month and to send them out recurrently till the economy turns around.
She has also demanded that children get another $1,000 per month.
She says that otherwise workers who have been furloughed or laid-off, workers coping with reduced workers, and self-employed citizens will struggle to put food on the table and pay their rent and utilities.
The Senior citizens’ League has also urged Congress to support seniors as they are among the worst affected among citizen groups with limited income and high medical expenses.
