Dear Congress, you had ONE JOB!

That one job was to pass a economic stimulus package to help businesses and workers who were going to be hit hard by the pandemic. That was the job they had. But, Congress, especially Democrats, stuffed as much crap into the bill as they could. In short, they cared more, far more, about handouts to their cronies than helping businesses and workers. Observe

Pelosi’s original bill called for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts to receive $35 million, and the organization ended up getting $25 million.

Nevertheless, the Washington, D.C. group laid off the entire National Symphony Orchestra on April 3. The organization sent musicians an email saying their April checks would be their last until the end of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Washington Free Beacon

“The Covid-19 Advisory Committee was broadsided today during our conversation with [Kennedy Center President] Deborah Rutter,” the email read. “Ms. Rutter abruptly informed us today that the last paycheck for all musicians and librarians will be April 3 and that we will not be paid again until the Center reopens.”

The bill also gave a combined $150 million in funding to the National Endowment of the Arts and National Endowment of the Humanities.

Critically, that $150 million comes in the form of grants with no expectation of being paid back. Meanwhile, much of the funding afforded to small businesses in the bill comes in the form of loans, which the companies will have to reimburse.

Go read it all folks, and yes, get angry.
