So who the heck is Brian Kemp to decide to scrap the FEDERAL PUA Cares Act passed by Congress?
From the Georgia Department of Labor website:
May 26, 2021
Federal UI Program Update
In accordance with Governor Brian Kemp and Commissioner Mark Butler’s plan for reemployment and economic recovery, effective June 27, 2021, Georgia will no longer participate in the federal unemployment programs enacted through the CARES Act and the American Rescue Plan Act. These programs include Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC), Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC), and Mixed Earner Unemployment Compensation (MEUC). The last payable week for these programs will be week ending June 26, 2021. All eligible payments under any of these federal programs for week ending dates on or before June 26, 2021 will continue to be processed and issued to qualified individuals.
Talk about corruption, and what is really sad is that he did it to kiss Trump’s rear, yet got booed at the Georgia Republican Convention:
Why is any governor allowed to override the legislation passed by Congress?! And isn’t it rich that a man who gets paid from our taxes has the nerve to say we don’t want to work? Pathetic.
