Stimulus checks petitions for $2000 gather traction and signatures in the previous week. This occurs despite a warning issued by President Biden regarding the probability of inflation which can be short-term. That apart, there was also a spike observed in the number of cases relating to COVID-19.
Change.org petition was created last year by a restaurant owner in Denver, by the name of Stephanie Bonin. The petition includes stimulus check payments worth $2000 for adults and $1000 for children made available instantaneously and on a recurring basis until the pandemic crisis situation is resolved. The petition has managed to gather nearly 2.7 million signatures, with an additional 65000 supporters joining in the last week itself. It is set to become one among the most signed petitions of Change.org once the 3 million targeted signatures are achieved.
Stimulus Checks Wanted Despite Biden’s Warning
Stimulus checks have been in more demand and there has been amplified support towards the petition over the last month. This marked over 250,000 new additions to the present signatures in the month of July. This happened during the time when the Delta variant was on the rise. The Delta variant is presently responsible for over 83% of COVID-19 infections within the U.S.A.
The petition was first started when the first wave of the virus was on, and the United States was being led by the administration of the then President, Donald Trump. Since then, the petition for the stimulus checks has been under routine updates.
Biden had earlier approved a payout of $1.9 trillion and turned it into law. This included a third stimulus check for $1400. Most governments and banks all around the globe have put in record amounts of funds within their economies in order to battle the recession triggered by the crisis. The USA is not an exception and has already put in trillions for aid using stimulus checks.
