No mention of 35 million for Kennedy Center, for solar energy, windshields…
Truth_hurts is shocked.
It is absolutely in there. As well as millions for NPR and other pork BS. Nice post lol
Now I get it…Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. Melania:
President Trump on Wednesday defended the inclusion of $25 million in funding for the Kennedy Center as part of the massive economic relief bill aimed at boosting small businesses and workers harmed by the fallout of the coronavirus. The Kennedy Center has a bipartisan board of trustees, which includes first lady Melania Trump.
Except for the fact Trump doesn’t write the bills and it was the Dems that added that. He did say that it didn’t bother him but it was a stupid addition by the Dems among the other crap they shoved in it. Trump admitted, “You have to give them things.” Shame on anybody for stuffing pork into this bill.
So what? There were 5.1 million jobs associated with arts and culture in 2017. https://www.bea.gov/news/2020/arts-and-cultural-production-satellite-account-us-and-states-2017
These people do not deserve help?
Melania is an “Honorary” member just as is Michelle Obama. They include them ( and I suspect every First Lady out of tradition) just because of who they are and you can be certain they have nothing to do with it other than attending performances. Since the Democrats are the ones that that threw that in there I would say, under your logic, the only thing rotten in Denmark is Michelle.
First of all we were talking about the Kennedy Center, but since you want to contribute, perhaps you should understand what the NEA is. It’s an organization. It is not everyone involved with the “arts.” In 2015, it employed 157 employees with total pay over 16 million dollars. It received 75 million in stimulus. I doubt the employee numbers have changed much. Sound worthy to you while this virus continues?
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) also received 75 million dollars in stimulus. Their mission statement: “The National Endowment for the Humanities supports research, education, preservation, and public programs in the humanities.”
They also employ about 150-200 people (159 in 2010)
Does this sound worthy to you as well during this crisis?
