So far, over 2 million people have signed a petition for $2,000 monthly checks for every American citizen. This petition was created by Stephanie Bonin, a restaurant owner from Colorado, and was first put onto the website Change.org last year.In the petition description, she remarks that she is among the millions of people who fear for their financial future due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “With businesses closing across the nation, many are already jobless. This is catastrophic for American working families, mine included.”

“I’m asking for Congress to support families with a monthly $2,000 payment and continuing regular payments during the crisis,” said Bonin. “Otherwise, workers who have been laid off along with self-employed people and those dealing with lowered hours will struggle to afford food and rent,” she said.

“It took Congress nine months to pass a second stimulus, and moments to spend it. Another single check will not solve our issues – people are simply too far behind,” says Bonin.

The last check was sent out earlier this year.  The amount was $1,400 for every American. Since the spring of 2020, the IRS has given almost $800 billion in relief payments.

More than 75 Democrats have called for monthly checks. However, while liberals are calling for monthly checks, Republicans remain skeptical of the agenda, fearing what could also be forced into such legislation.
