It's been four months since most of the federal government's $1,200 stimulus checks went out. The $600 a week federal boost to unemployment benefits expired three weeks ago, along with a moratorium on evictions. Many small businesses have already spent the money from their federal emergency loans. While President Donald Trump has attempted to fill in some of the gap via executive action, discussions in Congress over reinstating any of those programs or creating new ones have stalled, with no progress expected until September at the earliest -- even as the economy continues to stagger.
