There are several issues that Obama couldn’t fix while he ruled as a president.
Luckily, we have Donald Trump who is already having so much success for such a little time.
Trump is working to fix the issue with the unemployment pay.
Many people took advantage out of this program. It is good for the hardworking Americans who are facing a hard time if somehow they are left jobless. However, there are those who abuse the program by using the unemployment pay for drugs and other illegal habits.
However, the Trump Administration is ready to fix this issue. They are coming up with a plan that would force these individuals to do a drug test before receiving the unemployment pay. This law was dismissed by Congress last year.
With the Congressional Review Act (CRA), Republicans brought the law once again and will give the opportunity for the states to conduct a drug test before they issue an unemployment pay.
According to the law from 1996, if a regulation is repealed under the law, “agencies are barred from re-issuing the same rule or a ‘substantially similar’ rule in the future without an act of Congress,” as The Hill reported.
President Trump is here to remove 15 regulations, including the one issued by Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which protected the consumers to “settle disputes with financial institutions in court.”
This will be a huge help to the economy especially because the individuals who abuse the law will be forced to work.
President of Strategic Services of Unemployment and Workers’ Compensation Doug Holmes claimed that individuals who expect to receive the unemployment pay need to prove that they are not using any drugs and are able to work. He said: “This is an insurance program, it’s not public assistance.”
“An individual has to be available and able to work. If they’re not available and able to work, week by week by week, then they don’t meet the requirements to be paid unemployment compensation benefits. If an individual has a significant problem that renders him or her unavailable to work, the appropriate response is to refer them to a place to get help. They should not be paid unemployment benefits,’ he added.
Once again, Trump has set the country on its right path. He has already strengthened the economy and this will be a huge bonus.
