Stimulus 2 Checks Will Begin Arriving ‘Tonight’!

The long-awaited Stimulus 2 Checks are finally being distributed as long as you have an automatic deposit. Read on for details… report that the IRS and US Treasury is ready to send out the second stimulus checks starting tonight.

It’s a shock that Trump has been advocating for a larger check, but it’s the least he could do on his way out of the presidency.

CNBC reports, it’s been a lot of back and forth no thanks to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday blocked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s attempt to unanimously pass a bill to increase direct payments in the year-end coronavirus relief package to $2,000.

Through the bill, Republicans would both avoid the act of actually passing $2,000 payments but allow GOP senators running for reelection in Georgia’s Jan. 5 runoffs to express support for Trump’s priorities.

In a statement Tuesday, Schumer said if McConnell “tries loading up” the bill “with unrelated, partisan provisions that will do absolutely nothing to help struggling families across the country,” larger direct payments would not become law.

“Any move like this by Sen. McConnell would be a blatant attempt to deprive Americans of a $2,000 survival check,” he said.

Here is what we’ve learned from CNET:

Starting tonight, those who have direct deposit set up with the IRS can start looking for their second stimulus payments, said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. “These payments may begin to arrive in some accounts by direct deposit as early as tonight and will continue into next week,” Mnuchin tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

Mnuchin said checks going out through the mail will start to go out on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump signed the new COVID-19 relief bill that includes a second stimulus check for up to $600 per person on Sunday, and the IRS is on a tight schedule to send out this new round of direct payments, following rules that may result in some people having to wait weeks or even months to get paid.
