The news is out: [U.S. states are increasingly running out of extra unemployment benefits mandated by a presidential memorandum, and chances are fading that over 29 million jobless Americans will receive more as negotiations in Washington D.C. go nowhere.
Five states — Arizona, Missouri, Montana, Tennessee, and Texas — have officially exhausted six weeks-worth of extra $300 weekly unemployment benefits under the Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) program. Another 19 states will likely distribute their last payments in the coming days, and the rest will pay the benefits retroactively in lump sums. (States were given the option to increase the extra weekly amount to $400 by adding $100 themselves).]
I have never seen delay or inaction from congress when it comes to giving themselves raises or accepting bribes.
