Trump signs executive orders on payroll tax, evictions, and unemployment bonus

U.S. President Donald Trump signed several executive orders on Saturday after talks on the latest coronavirus stimulus bill failed.

The orders included extending the unemployment bonus at US$400 a week, down from the original US$600 that Americans have been receiving, though he did not say where the money would come from.

Another order would result in a payroll tax “holiday” for those making less than US$100,000 a year and would be in effect from Aug. 1 until the end of 2020. Trump said he would extend the holiday and terminate the tax if re-elected in November.

Trump’s third order would suspend student loan payments through the end of the year and maintain the zero per cent interest period for federal loans, saying the suspension will likely extend into 2021.
The president also extended the federal eviction moratorium, which expired last week, though he did not specify how long the moratorium would last. He said it would apply to renters and homeowners.

    Step one in eliminating the social safety net, eliminate the tax that pays for it: "What is payroll tax vs income tax?

    Payroll tax consists of Social Security and Medicare taxes, otherwise known as Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) tax. FICA tax is an employer-employee tax, meaning both you and your employees will contribute to it. Income tax is made up of federal, state, and local income taxes.Sep 6, 2017" That's from google search. Well, or maybe he's going to eliminate basic income tax under 100G income. Which i'd approve of.

    All nonsense. Has zero right to do any of it. Congress controls the money. Lawsuits coming
    "States cannot pay unemployment insurance benefits in a way that has not been authorized by Congress through enactment of legislation," said Michele Evermore, an unemployment insurance expert at the National Employment Law Project. "By definition, states' administration of unemployment insurance must conform to federal law — and there is no federal law on the books allowing for an additional sum,"

    President is right. $400 is good. We can’t give incentive to people not to work. It’s a good package signed. Thank you, President.
