The President of the United States has taken immediate action to ensure economic help to millions of Americans affected by the corona pandemic. When asked, he said that he was forced to take a firm decision after Congress broke down discussions.
The overall directives include supporting the unemployed class in the United States, extend the students’ loan duration and suspend payroll tax as of now.
Out of all of them, a few are likely to encounter a legal obstacle illustrating that Congress looks after the federal spendings and not the President.
