Americans all over the country have voiced their concern with being able to afford things for the Christmas holiday. Many are asking for another stimulus check.
Even after the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner cost much more money due to inflation, there is no fourth federal stimulus check in sight.
What is in sight however, is stimulus cash for millions of Americans from their local and state governments.
Four states and six cities have verified they will be sending stimulus aid to their residents.
