Two days after Christmas, Unemployment Benefits have officially expired for 2020 due to Donald Trump delaying to sign the new COVID-19 Pandemic Relief Stimulus Bill. ABC NEWS reports, for almost 10 million Americans who were relying on unemployment benefits as a means of financial support, those benefits have officially come to an end.
Trump refused to sign an end-of-year COVID-19 relief and spending bill that had been considered good-to-go before his sudden objections. Objections such as the stimulus checks being raised from $600 to $2000 for individuals and $4,000 for families. Without the widespread funding provided by the stimulus package, a government shutdown would occur when money runs out at 12:01 a.m. December 29th.
