The federal government of the United States of America refused to offer any further stimulus checks to the citizens. On the other hand, many US states came forward to provide financial support to their residents by giving additional stimulus checks and tax rebates. This measure is being taken owing to the inflation and crumbling economic structure post-Covid when people are struggling to purchase basic essentials like food, gas, and medicines.
This inflation is one of the most hard-hitting that urged governments to take appropriate action.
