I never expected the first one and certainly don't expect a second. I'll gladly take it though.
With these covid spikes - which will probably continue - and some trepidation on the part of a lot of people about going out and spending (though a lot are also going wild living their "normal" lives), and expiration of a lot of the stimulus package programs in the next few months, I really wonder if they'll do another stimulus check.
I can see it happening nor not happening.

Trump isn't going to sign a second round of checks.
He thought the first round would buy him votes and support, but his poll numbers are lower than ever.
That money didn't pay off for him, so he's not going to sign off on a second round of stimulus. And since Bitch McConnell does whatever Trump tells him to do, that means the Senate won't sign off on it either.

If they're gonna give unemployed the extra $600 stimulus, then they need to give people who still have their jobs but make under 50k a bump too. I alone knew three unemployed people who were getting more than my take home pay. And they were smug about it too. No desire to look for a job.

The lazy people getting stim money and not looking for a job is the number one reason to not vote liberal. Fiscally they are a sinking ship. Thankfully socially the Gorsuch Supreme Court provides us social protections. Not worth much if the country is in a economic depression with people refusing to work and be supported by those who do. End the stimulus for these people, help create jobs and get people working, money well spent.

It angers me when some people say that unemployed people don’t want to find a job and just want to go their government with their hand out. Yes there might be a few, there always are but not the majority so should the majority suffer(which happens way too often in general) for the mistakes of the few? Plus try find a job when so many businesses go bankrupt because of COVID. Tax is not paid by the rich, it’s paid by all of us. There’s nothing wrong with helping people getting through a temporary tough time.

R14 here - a grocery store worker. I actually work for an outside company and merchandise/service certain brands at multiple stores in Virginia. I am generally in 3-4 grocery stores and 3-4 gas stations/minimarts every day bringing product from the back storage area to the shelves/coolers (ensuring proper rotation, label pointed out, etc).
There is VERY uneven mask usage in my area. The best is Whole Foods, which is usually 100% masked. Then would come Aldi/Wegmans, Kroger, Walmart with Food Lion the worst. Gas stations are also very poorly masked.
On Sunday I saw the following in one of my Food Lions: 20-something white guy wearing camo shorts, Confederate t-shirt, NRA ballcap, and with a semi-automatic rifle slung across his shoulder. No mask of course. Who needs to open carry at the grocery store around noon on a Sunday? He was there to pick up beer, of course. I did not engage with him but make sure I did not ram him with my boat.

R67 Fuck you! A lot of these people who are unemployed are deliberately not trying to find work because their unemployment checks have not only gone up $600, but is being extended while the rest of us work our ass off; many who still have to work jobs where we have to interact with the public which means we put our health at risk.
So either everyone gets a check or they can cancel it completely.

"As long as it goes to people who are OUT OF WORK. I don't understand how fully employed people should get a bonus for themselves and kids when they haven't been economically disadvantaged for it. "
Out of work is what state unemployment benefits and the expanded federal unemployment benefits are for.
The checks weren't unemployment checks - they were "stimulus" checks. The ideas was keep people spending to avoid even more business and job loss - and that applies to those out of work and to people who still work but might be tightening their belts.

And the Republicans who control the Senate are hell-bent, as they are every year, to be out of DC by the first of August. Nothing will get done unless they see themselves losing their majority, an increasingly likely possibility, so who knows? Still, not exactly a lot of time to work out a way to benefit the most people in need in the most important ways.
If as expected the peaks aren't coming down in the South and West until mid-to-late July, that means another two months after that to clean up the mess and get the Ro (rate of reproduction) down below 1 after another two months without a functioning economy in big, hot parts of the country in the summertime.
The summer and fall in a lot of the US is going to look like winter and spring did in NYC and the Northeast. And while people in the NE will be getting back on their feet, their bills won't somehow magically get paid, either. Unless the Republicans do something big, something Trump doesn't want, and soon, it'll come too late for people who need help.
