Will republicans use the Coronavirus in another of their socialism for the rich scams?

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

GOP Senators want to make sure you can't sue corporations for exposing workers or customers to Corona virus. And they know that many, and even most of their gullible ill informed cult members, will still vote for these guys even with this blatant middle finger to them. Hilarious.

That's all?

Big victory! If the ventilators actually work.

:D

That's just one supplier. There was "an estimated $3 billion in taxpayer dollars spent on ventilators from a number of suppliers". Lots more room for waste and fraud.

US jails man who bought Lamborghini with government loan

Instead of speeding off in a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus, a Texas man got a slower ride to jail Tuesday after US authorities arrested him for using $1.6 million in government pandemic aid to go on a spending spree.

Lee Price III, 29, was charged with fraud after he secured two government loans under the Paycheck Protection Program to pay employees he did not have, the Justice Department said in a statement.

Instead he spent the funds on lavish goods like a sports car and a Rolex watch, as well as real estate, an F-350 pickup truck, and thousands of dollars at Houston strip clubs, the statement said....
:clap: :---P

To be fair, though, the strippers are workers that got supported.

So - the "welfare Lambo" isn't a myth after all.
But isn't it strange that the same government that nit-picks (opps) and nickel/dimes every unemployment compensation payment has no problem with hastily creating a poorly planned, loosely administered money shoveling operation that throws billions at ineligible people?

Why do you think it's strange? It's a kleptocracy. Even worse deplorable people are getting the welfare:
