(RightWing.org) – Another 3.8 million Americans filed for unemployment in the week ending April 25, making a total of over 30 million people out of work. That’s not including people who have fallen through the cracks. About 3 out of 10 people who tried to apply for benefits couldn’t make it through the system, and 2 out of 10 gave up because it was too difficult.
President Trump warned Congress this was going to be an issue.
Blame the Democrats for any “lateness” in your Enhanced Unemployment Insurance. I wanted the money to be paid directly, they insisted it be paid by states for distribution. I told them this would happen, especially with many states which have old computers.

Why are unemployment numbers continuing to come in droves? Because Democrats stalled the latest stimulus bill that would replenish Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding for two weeks, that’s why. While the bill eventually passed, the delay has already done more damage to the US economy.
Trump tried to prevent this from happening, but the Left folded their arms and pouted because they didn’t get everything on their policy wish list. Instead of focusing on the essentials and prioritizing a proper government response, Democrats want everything under the sun, and they want it right now. Sadly, the American people are the ones suffering while Democrats gridlock Congress to push their agenda.
