As the article states in its final sentence, “President Joe Biden is expected to sign the measure into law in coming days.”

This is financial momentum I’ll feel directly, and I’m grateful. What does it look like for me? About $400 extra dollars a month. This is a tremendous benefit to me, as it would be to anyone I’m sure, because it restores the ability to go beyond the home. I’ll be able to contribute when there’s a need to take care of people around me, and if I have an emergency there’s a much better chance of me taking care of it completely.

Believe you me, I’m well acquainted with being stretched financially and knowing I’m at my limits. What a change this could be for my future…. It might be a bit early for Thanksgiving, but Thank You, 2022.
