MORE than two million Americans are demanding $2,000 monthly stimulus checks from the Biden administration.
A Change.org petition pushing for more Covid relief money was started last year by restaurant owner Stephanie Bonin.

On Change.org, Bonin wrote: “I’m calling on Congress to support families with a $2,000 payment for adults and a $1,000 payment for kids immediately, and continuing regular checks for the duration of the crisis.”
She continued: “Congress needs to make sure that we won’t be financially ruined for doing our part to keep the country healthy.”
The petition has recently surpassed two million signatures and is continuing to grow quickly.
If it reaches three million signatures, it will become one of the most signed petitions on the platform.

It was even featured on Change.org’s list of top 10 petitions that changed 2020.
The third round of stimulus checks up to $1,400 will be arriving to Americans soon as part of Joe Biden’s America Rescue Plan.
This round of checks may include a “plus-up payment” for those who have not yet filed their federal tax return due by May 17.

Bonin argues that “another single check won’t solve our problems – people are just too far behind.”

According to CNET, 164million payments have been made to Americans since March.
This occurred after the $1,200 and then $600 stimulus checks issued by the Trump administration.
Still, Bonin maintains that “supplying Americans with monthly support until they can get back on their feet can save our communities from financial ruin” and almost three million Americans agree.
