Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Tuesday that Democrats’ playing politics with the coronavirus negotiations will continue to “sour on the American public.”
Braun spoke to Breitbart News as the Donald Trump administration, Republicans, and Democrats continue to negotiate over a potential coronavirus package that would provide aid to impacted Americans.
Republicans, such as Braun, remain concerned that the CARES Act’s generous $600 per week unemployment benefit, when combined with state and local unemployment benefits, makes it hard for Americans to go back work.
To alleviate that unintended consequence, Braun and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) introduced a bill that would provide Americans with either $200 per week in unemployment insurance or replace two-thirds of the unemployed American’s income.
As a Main Street entrepreneur, I know we need to support those who are still out of work due to the virus and the government response, but we can’t pay anyone more in unemployment than they made at their job. I support a temporary boost in unemployment benefits that fixes this problem without adding trillions in debt or funding D.C. pet projects.
