As the holiday season approaches and Americans continue to struggle to pay for products and services, many are requesting another stimulus check of $1,000 to $2,000 dollars.
Twitter users are using the site to urge President Joe Biden to offer greater assistance to those in need.
Some are requesting a second check, while others are requesting ongoing payments.
@JoeBiden, I need another stimulus check.

Multiple stimulus checks are required! We need $2000 followed by $1000! #SenatorSchumer #NancyPelosi #BernieSanders #ElizabethWaters #JonOssoff #Democrats #Biden #senatorSchumer #NancyPelosi #BernieSanders #ElizabethWaters #Democrats

Your one-time $1,400 stimulus cheque did not provide enough money to people to trigger inflation. That was over a year ago, and it was barely enough for one month’s rent. Please don’t pretend like we’re still surviving on it. Thanks.

PASS A $1,400 STIMULUS CHECK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! It’s the only way that families will be able to afford to celebrate the holidays. @POTUS @AOC @JoeBiden @SenSchumer @SenEWarren @SenMitchMcConnell @SenBernieSanders @BernieSanders @Sen JoeManchin @SenBernieSanders @BernieSanders @Sen JoeManchin

The federal government has issued three checks to persons who satisfy specific income standards.
The first check was for $1,200, then a $600 check, and finally a $1,400 check.
Almost three million Americans signed a petition requesting a $2,000 stimulus check, but the prospects of that happening are slim.
The petition requests that adults get a $2,000 check and children receive a $1,000 check, with recurrent payments throughout the duration of the epidemic.
