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.
