A petition supporting Americans on Social Security getting a fourth stimulus check still has traction heading into 2022.
The petition calls on Congress to send one more $1,400 check to those on a fixed income with Social Security benefits.
A letter went to the government detailing how the COLA increase of 5.9% was not enough after inflation.
The Sun reports that not only did the bump not help with inflation, but it pushed many past income limits for things like Medicare.
Change.org also has a petition with over 3 million signatures trying to convince Congress to send another check.
Will a fourth stimulus check happen?
It does not look likely.
The Build Back Better bill has provisions to help seniors, but a stimulus check is not one of them.
The bill aimed to pass by the end of 2021, but still has not passed in 2022.
