This is my surprised face - unemployment payments

Say it isn't so...  From Zero Hedge:

20% Of Pandemic Unemployment Payments Were Improper: GAO
About one in five unemployment insurance dollars paid out during the Covid-19 pandemic went to people who didn't qualify for the benefits, according to a report issued this week by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO).

At the same time it spotlighted the fiscal disaster, the congressional watchdog added the country's unemployment insurance (UI) system to its list of federal programs at "high risk" for waste, fraud, abuse and mismanagement.

To underscore the severity of the situation, the high-risk label was added outside the agency's regular biennial schedule for making such designations. “The widespread problems plaguing the unemployment insurance system are extremely troubling,” said GAO head Gene L. Dodaro.

My guess?  40% if not over 50% fraud. No consequences for the people who approved the bennies. Handing out the free government cheese. Fire them all. Make sure that the top 10% fraudsters get to spend at least a year in jail - "to encourage the others"
