This is insane.

Democrats' new spending bill that is currently at a stalemate in congress is set to give Americans four weeks of federal paid medical and family leave if they are unemployed. This means unemployed individuals that were caused by the pandemic may be receiving a big payday.

This news comes as a shock to many individuals. The Democrats plan comes as part of their build back better program set to help fund schools and other government programs.

Those who have been unemployed since the pandemic are eligible for this payment if the bill passes.
