Americans continue to wait for a fourth stimulus check as the month draws to a close.
Recent progress has been made on three ongoing requests, which, if approved, might result in a few hundred dollars worth of credit to Americans.
We have updated information on the $1,000 cash grants for low-income families, as well as the $600 stimulus check from the Golden State Stimulus Program and Medicare expansion.
A number of federal government projects were undertaken to modify America’s safety net. No matter how good it may seem to be, the only legislation that has been passed can formally help Americans and provide the requested financial aid.

Has the Maxicare expansion been approved?
“Medicare should cover your eyes, ears, and teeth. It’s that simple. It’s time to finally expand Medicare and guarantee seniors FULL coverage.” tweeted Representative Pramila Jayapal.
There is disagreement among lawmakers as to whether Medicare should cover dental, hearing, and vision care. At the time this report was written, no decision has been made.
As a centrist Democrat, Senator Joe Manchin said that Medicare had to be stable before it could be expanded. However, Progressive Party members disagreed.
“The expansion of Medicare to cover dental, hearing, and vision is one of the most popular and important provisions in the entire reconciliation bill. It’s what the American people want. It’s not coming out.” Bernie Sanders tweeted.
Progressive Caucus Chair, Pramila Jayapal, tweeted that it was time for “FULL coverage.”
Senate Budget Committee Chair, Bernie Sanders disagreed with the Chair’s statement. In his words, the policies Americans want are “not coming out.”
“The expansion of Medicare to cover dental, hearing, and vision is supported by 84% of the public and is one of the most important provisions in Build Back Better. It’s what the American people want and, after waiting over 50 years, what they are going to get,” Bernie Sanders said via Twitter.
Regardless of the controversies, people still hope it will be allowed by officials.
As a matter of fact, the expansion of Medicare is a key aspect of Build Back Better.
