Daily Kos: Trump administration gave private jet companies over half a billion in pandemic bailout funds
Hey, want to get upset over something other than, you know, 400,000 dead Americans due to staggering administration incompetence, or the whole “a significant percentage of the United States population supports a violent fascist coup” thing? Sure you do.
Accountable.US reports that private jet companies, as a group, made out pretty well when it came to handing out emergency pandemic funds. Private jet companies received over $643 million in federal aid, spread across three emergency programs. The majority, over half a billion dollars, came in grants from the Payroll Support Program.
“[A]t least 49 private jet companies have been given access to all three programs, taking up to $87.38 million in federal COVID stimulus funds between them,” notes the report.
