President Joe Biden’s administration has indicated that a new stimulus payout may be on the way.

There are still some people waiting to receive their last stimulus payment. Some Democrats are pushing for a fourth stimulus check saying, “families shouldn’t have to worry about whether they’ll have enough money to pay for essentials in the months ahead as the country continues to fight a global pandemic.”
