The second round of coronavirus stimulus checks are on their way to be sent out to struggling Americans, but unfortunately, there have been some delays, and here's why.
If you have been following the news surrounding the second round of coronavirus stimulus payments, you would probably know that it isn't the direct payments that are stopping the legislation from passing, but the Unemployment aid. Or, at least, that is according to both Nancy Pelosi and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, as both sides haven't yet come to terms on whether or not they should raise the unemployment benefits to $600/week, or drop it down to $200/week.
In a recent interview with Pelosi, the House speaker took aim at the President and Republicans saying it's their fault for the hold up on payments. Now, President Trump has taken to Twitter to say that the $3,400 checks for families of four ($2,400 for married couples and $500 for each child) are being held back by the Democrats. Trump claims these checks "were ready to be sent out!". Unfortunately, with these debates seemingly going nowhere anytime soon, all Americans can do is patiently wait.
