After much negotiations and delay, the latest version of the coronavirus relief package in Congress reportedly includes $US600 stimulus checks for Americans.
Progressive lawmakers have criticised the reported $US600 checks for being insufficient. One group of 17 progressive Democrats signed a letter to congressional leadership urging for $US2,000 stimulus checks, Business Insider’s Joseph Zeballos-Roig reported this week. On Friday, Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley slammed the stimulus checks and said “at this point, these are not even stimulus checks. These are survival checks,” while speaking on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut.”
The first round of stimulus checks in the spring distributed $US1,200 stimulus checks to over 80 million Americans beginning in April, Business Insider’s Joseph Zeballos-Roig previously reported.Many people were using it to cover costs for food, The Washington Post reported at the time.
The reported $US600 stimulus checks have drawn an ample amount of ire on Twitter. Here are some viral reactions on Twitter about the reported $US600 stimulus checks in the coronavirus relief package.
