So for there's 21 Democrats in the Senate that are pushing President Biden to extend some of the government benefits in the recent relief bills. Two of which being recurring stimulus checks and jobless benefits. They're saying the goal in extending these are to make sure relief does not lapse.
I couldn't agree with them more and I really really hope that more of the Senate pushes for this. After all, a stimulus is no good if it's not able to stimulate anything. It's just a relief check if it's just going to bills. A true stimulus would be to encourage spending on other things.
I wonder the appetite Biden would have to consider and push this with him trying to do a huge infrastructure bill right now. Gotta think pretty little.
Any idea what a recurring stimulus bill would cost?
