Here’s some information about a stimulus check update from the White House and the Treasury. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said he and President Trump discussed the idea of additional stimulus payments, though no decision had been made yet on whether to advocate for them in the next bill.
Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said:
“It’s something that we’re very seriously considering.”
“We can’t shut down the economy again. I think we’ve learned that if you shut down the economy, you’re going to create more damage.”
“Before we rush back and spend more money, whether that’s a trillion dollars or whether that’s more, we want to make sure we’re careful in knowing how much more we need to spend.,”
“If we continue enhanced unemployment, we’re obviously going to need to fix that… so that we don’t end up in a situation where workers are paid more on unemployment than they are to go back to work.”
“I’m very focused on how do we create the right motivation.”
