Washington, D.C. — Today, Reps. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) and Ted Budd (R-N.C.) introduced the Getting Americans Back to Work Act. This bill fixes glaring errors in the CARES Act that incentivize millions of unemployed Americans to stay out of work because they receive more income through unemployment benefits than through their previous jobs. The bill caps the amount an individual can receive from unemployment insurance at 100 percent of their previous wages.
