Governor Holcomb shuts down the entire economy, then blasts his fellow Hoosiers who are still unemployed

A Marion County Superior Court Judge said that the State of Indiana must reinstate expanded federal unemployment benefits until a ruling is made in a case filed by a group of unemployed people. Judge Hanley found that by rejecting federal benefits, Governor Holcomb had violated Indiana law, adding that the plaintiffs had shown a “reasonable likelihood of success.”

Indiana law provides the Hoosier State accept the responsibility of securing “all rights and benefits” conferred under certain federal statutes, including those that “deal with the establishment and funding of federal and state unemployment benefits schemes,” Hanley said, and the benefits under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act are funded by those statutes, it was pointed out too.

“Indiana law recognizes the importance of these benefits. Indiana law requires the State to accept these benefits,” Hanley said. So, at least for now, the federal benefits will continue, despite a Governor who thinks shutting down the economy one month and starting it another makes everyone fully-employed again.

Stay tuned for further developments in this case.

  1. If your unemployed still it’s by choice. There’s TON’S of jobs out there.

  2. Agree with Andrew. This is just more lazy liberals wanting something for nothing. They just don’t understand that if the government gives you (unemployed person) money, its because they took it from someone else (employed people). Shame on the Lintonian fir posting a biased article like this.

    1. There is no shame! You are currently living thru American eg crazy inflation. Ironically, Biden’s son got $50K per month from a board in the Ukraine. hmmm…. doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure tha
