Paging Rick Scott

[link:https://www.cbsnews.com/news/senate-coronavirus-economic-stimulus-package-bill-2020-03-25/|]

The bill increases the maximum unemployment insurance payment by $600 per week and extends the period for which workers are eligible to four months. Four Republican senators Senators Tim Scott, Rick Scott, Ben Sasse and Lindsey Graham raised concerns about what they called a "drafting error" in the bill, arguing that the expansion could incentivize workers to lose their jobs if the totality of state and federal unemployment benefits exceeds their current income.

Once again, progress grinds to halt while some shitheads discuss the possibility that some people might actually get a few more bucks than they "deserve" or be "incentivized to lose their jobs." GOOD GOD!!!

How much money are we talking about here, versus the corporate bailouts they don't think twice about signing off on?
