There have been talks of the next package since April. Democrats even approved their $3 trillion HEROES Act in mid-May. Since then the speculations started on what the next package would look like and when the negotiations would start.

The Senate Republicans finally sat down for negotiations after they introduced their proposal, called the HEALS Act, in late July. At the time, it was largely expected that both sides would reach a deal by the first week of August, and Americans would get the checks by September.

However, the negotiations collapsed, and the House and Senate left for recess. Since then, a few efforts have been made to resume talks, but they failed as well.

After the talks collapsed, President Donald Trump came up with executive orders on a few provisions, including unemployment benefit, evictions, student loan and payroll tax cuts. However, those orders did not include anything about the stimulus checks, adding further to the frustration of people.

The blame game that the lawmakers are playing isn’t helping either. Republicans are blaming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for standing in the way of the stimulus checks to Americans. Pelosi, on the other hand, says that the White House and Republicans don’t understand the gravity of the situation.

While all these things are happening, the unemployment numbers continue to remain at alarming levels.
