I'm wondering if you really read my letter and the youtube letter I sent you? Please take the time to look both of them over again. A one-time payment is not enough. Waiting until August to maybe receive another 1-time payment is not enough. I need you to understand most Americans are hurting. Businesses and the rich are getting richer with this pandemic, they are giving all sorts of financial help by our government yet we were asked to stay home and follow guidelines received only a 1-time check to do so. The unemployed get an extra $600 weekly, this is so unfair. I'm on SSI, retired, and live on a fixed income yet my bills are on the rise, food is at an all-time high. Property taxes are due and they have been raised to an all-time high. I can't even insure my home for what the town states it is worth. When you finally vote in August and only pass another 1-time stimulus payment to the American people it will be a frustrating and disappointing day, to say the least. The unemployed made out great and might get their unemployment longer with the $600 weekly? This is crazy and unfair to people that are retired, on SSIS and SSI. We have suffered and it seems we will keep suffering. If you were to go on youtube and watched Meet Kevin or Charles Gardener you would read and see how most Americans are feeling. You would get a full understanding of what we need and hope our government will give us this August. We need help now and a 1-time payment is of little help. Canada is helping its people monthly have been since the beginning of Covid-19. I will be more than upset if Congress votes to forget the people again. A 1-time payment again will be a slap in our faces. We need all months from the start of Covid-19 to be retroactive to the American people and we are asking for monthly checks until this is over or a vaccine found. President Trump is wrong this virus is not going away. It doesn't have legs. It needs a host to live. Go on youtube and you and do some research. We feel abandoned by our whole government. It doesn't please me that businesses have and will get help from our government and we will get just another $1200? How can the normal person spend money when we don't have it to spend? I'm not able to get loans and free money. Please tell me how you think the average American is doing. and feeling? I don't feel safe and I feel like I'm alone in this. I'm don't receive unemployment, I don't get an extra $600 a weekly. So only the unemployed or working matter only they help our economy? Yet I will suffer because our government is waiting to see how many go back to work? This is not right. More than 90% of Americans are unhappy. You have a vote please make it count for the people this time. I have to say at this point Canada and Australia people are taken better care of by their government than we are. How sad is this? Our government and Trump have not helped the American people as they should. This is inexcusable and needs to be addressed. The monies and help from our government should go to the American people first this time. Then you can address what big companies need and want. Americans want and need to get their fair share this time and desperately need help, we need to see monthly stimulus payments. Please put us first this time. Thank you

We ( the group on SSA and SSI and all the essential workers are the ones that have been labeled by the government into a group that isn't included or important enough to receive the extra $600 weekly stimulus) The government abandoned the group that wasn't collecting unemployment. We are told we are not hurting because we get paid every month. Yet we are hurting, the cost of living has gone way up. For us rather it is our age or disability we just can't go out and easily get a job. Our income is fixed and it is a big slap in the face watching the unemployed group matter more than us. I wonder if the shoe were on the other foot would they have stayed so quiet and let it be allowed as we did for them? I have collected unemployment in some of my working years and no one thought to give me an extra $600 weekly. I will not be made to feel ashamed or keep quiet because I rightfully collect my SSA. We watched while the unemployed received an extra $600 weekly yes weekly, and also received the one-time stimulus. How is that fair as they were collecting their regular unemployment? The unemployed are getting their weekly stimulus yet, people on SSA and SSI and the essential workers are so wrongly overlooked, how is that fair? It blows my mind this overlooked group didn't demand once to the government, that we too deserve a weekly stimulus of $600 as well. Our group contributes just as much to the economy as the unemployed, we are not second class citizens. The essential workers are the workers who have worked through this COVID-19 virus and should be getting that extra $600 weekly stimulus without question. Canada and Australia have given ALL their citizens monthly stimulus since the beginning and Canada has recently extended it. Our government should have given a monthly stimulus to ALL it's citizens and not single out any one group to be left out as All LIVES matter. It is hurtful and humiliating that our government has not done right by all of us. It is my hope that all SSA and SSI and especially the essential worker demand our right to stimulus and not be single out that a certain group is more important. This time I have written letters to our government and have voiced my concerns. We need to demand the extra $600 weekly stimulus be now paid to the group above who did not receive it, and that the stimulus is to be given to our group retroactively. Please write to our government and demand to be treated fairly. Please don't sit by and watch this time, speak up make your voice heard. Kevin is making it clear with today's post that our group is once again to be left out of receiving the extended stimulus. That our government is thinking of only giving the stimulus to only the unemployed group. Please don't let this injustice happen to us this time around. Please voice your concerns, don't let this bill be extended without all groups being rightfully included this time around. The government is sitting on their hands waiting until July 31st to vote on extending the unemployed weekly $600 stimulus that will run out July 31st. They are waiting to see how many of them are going back to work. Again, our group suffers while our government looks at the unemployed being the only group that matters to the economy. Remember to Vote and Vote out all those in our government who thought and still thinks our group doesn't matter.
