By now, you have most likely heard that lawmakers are currently drawing up plans for the second round of coronavirus stimulus payments to help struggling Americans who have been affected by the virus, but what seems to be taking so long? Well, usually with these kinds of things, there are multiple reasons why something as complicated as this hasn't been finished yet, but with this legislation, in particular, there's only one reason, and that's - Unemployment aid.

Yes, that's correct, unemployment aid has caused Congress to literally be stuck for the past week, and the reason for that is that lawmakers on both sides of the fence cannot agree on a specific figure. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, and Senate Republicans have opposed the idea of re-upping the $600/week in extra unemployment benefits, which is ultimately causing the entire legislation to grind to a halt.
