Fourth $2,000 Stimulus Check Payments Never Emerged
Hopeful residents in Pennsylvania thought they could receive up to $2,000 in a state stimulus check, but payments never emerged. Governor Tom Wolf has revealed why he was unable to deliver on the plan as he wraps up his tenure.
According to a published post by International Business Times, Wolf, a Democrat who has served two terms and held the job as Governor during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, admitted he wasn’t sure why the checks weren’t able to be approved.
Fourth Stimulus Check Updates: Why $2,000 Payments Never Emerged
He said that the $2000 would be a really nice help as families in the state struggled with higher prices due to inflation. He followed that he did not know why he couldn’t get that done.
The plan known as the PA Opportunity Plan initially received pushback because of fears it was set to come from federal funds, but he had been hopeful that a surplus in state budget money would have allowed him to help families in need.
He then stated that the money would’ve come from federal funds as it was free money just waiting to be sent out. He also said that after the budget passed and we had all this money it was another opportunity to use the state money instead of using federal money. The state had plenty and would not even cause to raise anybody’s taxes.
