The excavating business was hired by SpaceX to clear storm drains at a facility near Brownsville, the south Texas city where much of the company's development has taken place. Until about two weeks after Hydroz filed a lien last June " months after it had performed the work -- SpaceX didn't pay its $19,214 bill.

"We're not some hundred-million-dollar company," Rozelle said. "It was hard on us."

SpaceX didn't respond to requests from Reuters for comment on the liens and complaints from subcontractors and suppliers. ...

"Slow to Pay Its Bills"

Elmo is learning a lot from Donald.

Listening to the testimony from Cohen yesterday the fat loser had every intention to slow walk the payment to Daniels in the hopes of weaseling out of it and she grabbed him by the pu**y threatening to release it to another outlet. Such a fkg loser.

I'm sure fElon will call this aggravated assault on his character and whine about his being a victim.

The first rule of GOP is they are ALWAYS a victim.

Maybe, just maybe, that is why they love Capitalism.

They can make others make up for the bills to vendors they do not pay.

The GOP does seem t be aware of that concept.

Back in the 90's when Republicans were all in favor of the healthcare mandate, one of the reasons given was that they were tired of higher medical bills because of those who could not pay their medical bills.

Hence the GOP-initiated healthcare mandate.
