What Would You Do With a $600 Stimulus Check?
It's a question that many of us will be contemplating over the next few days. Because according to KDVR, Congress has passed a $900 billion dollar pandemic relief package. This is supposed to help businesses and individuals overcome some of the struggles that we have all endured through 2020.
The relief package is said to have been passed very quickly and by a massive 91-7 vote, which shows that at least politicians are aware that people are struggling and need help.
This relief package looks like it will send $600 to most Americans with a temporary $300 in additional assistance to help those who are without employment. There will also be a new round of subsidies for hard-hit businesses, restaurants, and theaters, also money for schools, health care providers, and renters facing eviction. But we all know that this $900 billion will disappear quickly.
While a $600 check will help some people who have struggled, that money will quickly be gone for past due bills, to keep the lights on currently, or will probably be used to put groceries in the house.
It's not a huge amount of money but hopefully, it will keep some people from stressing about paying their bills this month. Especially around the holidays when people are stressing so much already.
This bill still needs to hit the desk of President Donald Trump so he can sign it before any money is distributed but that could happen within a matter of days, and money could be released in just weeks.
So, what are you going to do with a $600 check?
