U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik says she supports President Donald Trump’s executive orders signed over the weekend to provide COVID-19 relief. The orders bypass congress… which many said was simply sitting on its hands and playing politics. They allow unemployed workers to receive an additional $400 weekly supplemental unemployment benefit, and they call for a deferral of the payroll tax and federal student loan payments and a continuation of a freeze on some evictions. Stefanik said she supported the president’s orders, and she is disappointed that Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Charles Schumer “walked away” from a legislative coronavirus relief package.
