The Senior Citizens League is circulating yet another popular stimulus check petition. The organization has been lobbying Congress to pass the fourth batch of stimulus checks, making $1,400 direct payments to just Social Security recipients.

Reason why a fourth stimulus check is being pushed for
The IRS distributed nearly 169 million payments in the third batch of direct stimulus assistance, with $1,400 checks reaching most American households. On the other hand, some advocates and lawmakers are requesting the fourth round of stimulus funds, which would be provided in installments until the pandemic is finished.
Despite this assistance, millions of Americans remain in financial distress, and the expansion of the Omicron variant is exacerbating the problem. As a result, the unemployment rate is 4.2 percent, more significant than the 3.5 percent pre-pandemic level. The increase of COVID-19 instances is hitting demand in the leisure, entertainment, travel, and restaurant industries, CBS NEws posted.
Stimulus funding is no longer available for many people, a subject that many Americans are concerned about as they continue to battle with joblessness and a sluggish labor market. However, some advocates are encouraging lawmakers to support new stimulus efforts, particularly for one group that has been severely hit by soaring inflation due to the pandemic.
