What kind of stimulus payments do you think is best? Let us know in the comments section below.
Second Stimulus Checks and Extended Unemployment Benefits
Last week, the House passed the .2 trillion revised Heroes Act which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced on Monday. It includes another round of ,200 direct payments to U.S. households. Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have been trying to come up with a compromise on the stimulus bill. On Friday, President Donald Trump said he tested positive for coronavirus and urged Congress on Saturday to pass a much-needed stimulus package to help Americans. So far, Democrats and Republicans have not been able to come to an agreement on a relief aid package, and time is running out to get one passed before the November presidential election.
Recently, her Shark Tank co-star Mark Cuban said a second stimulus package should give all U.S. households a ,000 stimulus check every two weeks for the next two months. However, there is a catch — recipients must use that money within 10 days. Cuban believes that this requirement will promote spending and help keep businesses open.
Barbara Corcoran, the American investor famed for building a real estate empire with just a ,000 loan, has spoken about stimulus checks to help Americans through the coronavirus-led economic crisis.

According to CNBC, experts agree with Corcoran that boosting unemployment benefits will help mitigate financial hardship long-term and would help the economy recover more effectively than one-time checks.
Famous investor and “Shark Tank” star Barbara Corcoran has criticized Mark Cuban’s “use it or lose it” approach to the second round of stimulus checks for Americans. She also shares her thinking on what’s more important than one-time direct payments.
Many people, including Corcoran, disagree with Cuban’s stimulus check suggestion. Commenting on her co-star’s idea of giving people a stimulus check with an expiry date, she told CNBC Make It last week:
