The PUA program, now paying benefits to the self employed, is using FEMA statutes as it’s legal foundation. Fema statutes require a person to be ineligible for any other benefits in order to qualify for Disaster Unemployment (or PUA). I’d be curious how an executive order can legally get around that.

The other concern I have is that it sets a precedent for the next liberal president to go wild with executive orders.

Re:: be ineligible for any other benefits

That’s very squishy language - and who knows, maybe some other directive allows that part to be modified. This only has to last about 10 weeks and then there’s an election.

and remember, Justice Roberts just said, once a program is started via EO (DACA), even if it’s illegal, it has to go thru a legal process (lasting months) before it can be ended.

We already crossed the Rubicon - in a normal world, Congress would agree to fund a disaster, but toxic politics is preventing that.
