Take that, Congress.
Even with the $2 trillion stimulus package passed by the Senate on Wednesday, millions of Americans are expected to file for unemployment next week as the cascading economic damage wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic continues to devastate the economy. It might be weeks before the $1,200 government checks arrive in mailboxes and even then they're not likely to ease the pressure for long for those out of work indefinitely.
Taylor Swift has a plan for that. The singer is reaching out with her own Swiftie Stimulus checks to some of her long-time fans, and they are in awe of her generous gesture. Billboard can confirm that there were at least 10 such payments made by Swift on Wednesday (March 25).
"OHHHHH MY F--KINGGGGFFF SHUT HP SHUT UPS BUT IP SHUT UP THIS CANT BE HAPPENING I CANT STOP SHAKONT I CANT STOP CRUING WHAT THE FUCK TULORLRL," wrote Samantha Jacobson, who posted a message she got from Swift in which the singer wrote, "Samantha, I saw your tweet about being stressed about bills piling up and I want to help."
