I'm shocked! Someone should alert the media!

So, the premise about corruption is obvious and has been a problem for a very long time and cannot be denied, and should be fixed. However, as it relates to covid, so what? The premise of the article doesn't help the problem we are fighting. If the funding would have gone to all businesses outside of the ones involved in the corruption, the economic numbers would still be the same. It would just mean other people got to keep their jobs while the ones who have been able to keep them today would not. The problem that covid is impacting our economy would still remain and be almost exactly the same. Moving money around doesn't change the impact. To put it more simply, if Jack and Sally both could lose their jobs, and Jack gets government money, he keeps his and Sally doesn't. If, instead, Sally gets the money then Jack loses his job.

1. "If the funding would have gone to all businesses outside of the ones involved in the corruption, the economic numbers would still be the same."
We would have saved a lot more businesses. Go tell your BS about how Mega Churches and Kanye West deserves millions in loans to the mom and pop shops that got a dollar from the rescue. We won't be sending flowers to you during your hospital stay.

2. "It would just mean other people got to keep their jobs while the ones who have been able to keep them today would not."
No, dummy. Because the money went to businesses that didn't need it to keep employees on the payroll instead of companies that did. How god damn brain dead do you have to be not to understand that?

3. "Moving money around doesn't change the impact."
Moving money to the right places keeps people in jobs or at least in their homes. Instead we have your ---- up President in office shoveling it to his rich friends who don't need it.

4. "To put it more simply, if Jack and Sally both could lose their jobs, and Jack gets government money, he keeps his and Sally doesn't. If, instead, Sally gets the money then Jack loses his job."
We didn't give the money to Jack and Sally's employer. We gave it to Trump's rich friends to pocket.

Honestly, you are a complete waste of space in this country. You don't know anything. You don't care. You just continue to take from the government and whine because you aren't smart enough to understand any of the problems or issues.

Frankly, it's people like you who put us here.
