President Donald Trump is attempting to bypass congressional gridlock by enacting coronavirus relief through four executive orders, he announced Saturday.
H/T: Daily Caller
Trump’s first order seeks to establish a payroll tax cut holiday from August 1, 2020 through the end of the year. The second directs the Department of Housing and Urban Development and other federal agencies to prohibit evictions. The third order establishes a $400-per-week addition to the paycheck protection program for workers. The fourth will provide relief for Americans’ student loans.
Pres says he's ordering a payroll tax holiday for those making less than $100K/year. Would be in effect from August 1 to the end of 2020. Says if he's re-elected he'll extend the holiday and terminate the tax.— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) August 8, 2020
President Trump's executive order on a payroll tax holiday will put cash the wallets of American consumers, and cash flow in the finances of American business. The combination will boost the economy. @NoahWWallhttps://t.co/vhB14fyaLX— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) August 8, 2020

John Roberts said so last month, right?

Barack Obama can give away taxpayer dollars to illegal aliens via executive order
But Trump can't revitalize the middle class through executive order
See how it works?
