And then they blame Trump for wanting to get the economy going by Easter and saying that the cure cannot be worse than illness.

Poor Americans should be helped in other ways and not by putting people’s lives in danger.

Like which…giving 35 million for the Kennedy Center?

$75 million to NEA (160 employees)
$75 million to NEH (160 employees)

I bet $150 million could have helped a few people. Those little agencies already have pretty big budgets and are basically non-essential at a time of crisis.

They contribute $704.2 billion to the US economy, among other things.

Did you even read what you posted?? Who gives a rat’s ass about the museums at this point or marginal artists who aren’t good enough to afford a living at their craft. They can get a job doing something else or go back to school and get a marketable degree. Reading programs? How is any of this relevant to the virus crisis??? Clueless.

NEA and NEH are actually indispensable. They are the only ones who can help us raise new generations of voters, with broad humanist outlook and ability to think critically. These voters will not vote for someone like Trump. That is the reason why Trump is against them-they are the stronghold of his fierce critics.

Oh yeah, lame retort. $150 million could have helped a lot of people without jobs and small companies trying to stay alive and their people employed. Or maybe it could have been sent to the hospitals or first responders or anywhere related to help for the virus. Are you even serious with that post or was it a joke? I can’t even tell anymore.

The impact of this pandemic is potentially brutal on a health and financial level and the poorer sections of the public will be hit hard. Local business and communities have to do their bit to alleviate some of the hardship…hopefully the downturn of COVID-19 will come sooner rather than later.
