Over the weekend President Donald Trump signed executive orders for the following: adding $400 to federal unemployment extension (which replaces the $600 unemployment funds that expired last month), a payroll tax holiday, and eviction protections.
Of the $400 for unemployment, $300 will be paid by the federal government and the additional $100 is to be paid by the state.
On Monday, California Governor Gavin Newsom declared that they do not have the money to pay the $100 unemployment benefit to citizens that aren't working. said Monday that the state could not afford to pay its share of President Donald Trump’s new expansion of unemployment benefits because it did not have the money.
The state “cannot shoulder this burden without cutting important services,” the governor said.
Newsom said that providing $100 per week would cost the state $700 million per week, rising to nearly $3 billion if the federal portion of the benefits were to run out of money. He said that the coronavirus aid that had already been given to the state had already been allocated to other spending priorities, and that the state did not have the money to make up the difference.
Moreover, he said, paying an additional $100 weekly benefit through the state’s beleaguered unemployment system would also result in “time delays” and “enormous consternation” for people applying for benefits.
Newsom says unemployed Citizens in California are not his priority, other programs are. Meanwhile Newsom is keeping people unemployed, indefinitely! Ruiz has done and said nothing to open our District and state, save small biz, and livelihood

It was not clear whether Newsom had shut the door entirely on the expanded unemployment benefits. President Trump said on Sunday that the federal government might be able to fund the entire program.
Additionally, Newsom also said that existing state moratoria on evictions had been extended, and that the state had extended the authority of local governments to enact their own moratoria.
Sounds to me like he needs to reopen the state so that businesses can get back to normal and people can work. If they are working, they will not need to be on unemployment and there will be nothing for him to be concerned about.
These Democrat governors and mayors need to understand that they can't have their cake and eat it too.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot: 'We Need Gun Control, Not Federal Troops'
Chicago, ran by Democrats and infested with crime, has only seen an increase in looting and violence over the past several weeks. However, instead of accepting calls for federal HOPE response, Mayor Lori Lightfoot declared that they do not need federal help, and began to push for more gun control.
She obviously does not understand that criminals do not care about gun control. Criminals break the law, so what makes her think that taking guns from the good people will keep them from the hands of the bad people? All it does is leave good people defenseless.
