New plan could give you a $300 stimulus check every month – forever

Democrats are pushing hard for Americans to get new stimulus checks, beyond the mix of direct payments and tax credits made possible by the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief legislation that President Biden signed into law last month. And a new plan that Democrats have latched on to might actually have more of a chance of coming to fruition since it doesn’t represent another stimulus check that’s labeled as such, along the lines of the $1,400 payments that started going out a few weeks ago — payments that comprised the third wave of such payments since the coronavirus pandemic began.

This particular benefit gives families as much as $3,600 in new stimulus checks over the course of a year for each eligible child, via monthly checks that will start in July, and those checks are what some Democrats now want to make permanent.
