How soon might you receive a $1,400 stimulus check?

"Biden's $1.9 trillion covert relief package. Well, some of that money get to you. Let's go live to double d. T O p. S. Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill. Mitch First I think the stimulus checks is the top of mind for a lot of folks. How soon could people death? Um Absolutely well. President Biden plans to sign this bill into law on Friday is on our understanding from the White House, so given that the checks could go out Elektronik Lee for many of those who have actually received the checks this way in the last couple of stimulus packages, they should probably go out about a week after the president signs this into law and then for those who actually get the paper checks. Those would probably go out the final week of this month so they won't have to wait too long, and the Iris says they're pretty well ready to go, especially given their past experiences for those who are waiting for the extension of federal unemployment benefits that $300 enhanced unemployment benefit. We understand that it is supposed to be in the pipeline because this is really just an extension of that program. So for most people, it should be fairly seamless. Obviously, there are going to be individuals that have problems here. There but overall because this has now been into effect for almost a year. Ah, lot of this is going to get into the pipeline pretty quickly to people. Mitch. No Republicans voted for this bill. How did they framed their latest argument's during debate today? Well, Hillary, it was a little more nuanced today in the actual arguments on the floor. Of course, there have been a lot of arguments about the fact that it's full of political waste from the Democrats that it's just a wish list from the Democratic Party. But today, actually, the Republicans Went through and kind of broke things down into the areas where they think that the money is not really going directly to the Corona virus, And they have basically been saying that it's nine. Only 9% is actually going directly to the coronavirus. Now you can go back and forth on those arguments, but one of the more specific arguments they made is that while people will be getting $1400 checks The stimulus checks that overall if you look at all of the other money that's going toward things that the average taxpayer might actually be having to spend more than $5000 minus that 1400. So they argue that it's a net loss for the taxpayer Now, Obviously, there's a lot of economic things going on there as well mentioned course, we've been through a couple of these big relief bills. Is this likely to be the last major covert relief legislation? Sean, I think this is going to be the last one, at least for quite some Time. As you know, this is actually the sixth one of these major stimulus packages. Obviously, this is the biggest one since the cares act was approved last year that was over $2 trillion, But even Democrats who have been continually saying they're going big on this, they are saying they need to wait to get this money into the economic system and see how really how everything is affected by the fact that people are getting vaccinations. The fact that businesses are reopening, so I think this is going to be ah, waiting period for a while. However, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has said that if things do go worse later in the year, they will be open to taking another look at this legislation. But I think this is the final big bang for now, out of Congress already. Thank you so much,
