Kennedy Center gets their bailout and then lays off entire orchestra.

So he lied when he said he was a big fan of the arts? It was all because he was forced to accept the deal?


Posted 10:51 am, 03/30/2020

OMG, ARE YOU BRAIN DEAD. Why don't you pay attention.


Posted 10:48 am, 03/30/2020

Then why did Drumpf say he approved it?

Eh. You guys make it sound like he's tougher than that. Guess not.

The reason the bill was passed was because Pelosi held a gun to the heads of the Republicans and Trump. They fought it as long as they could. They could have stood their ground over Nancy's pork and let this argument go on for another month or two.

Can you imagine what $25 million would do to help more small businesses.

Of course we all know that the orchestra is the Center's only cost.
And we all know that crowds will be flocking in to see the orchestra play!

Are you holding Drumpf accountable, too? Does the buck stop with him?


Posted 9:26 pm, 03/29/2020

How will this measure up to the leftists' "accountability and oversight" demands?


Posted 9:08 pm, 03/29/2020

Pork its what makes DC go round

Another septic thread bites the dust.

Here you go alt-righties, whine about Trump approving the money.

"I approved that," Mr. Trump said without missing a beat, saying he's a fan of the arts. "The Kennedy Center has suffered greatly, because nobody can go there - it's essentially closed."

It was not Pelosi's fault the Kennedy Center took the money and ran. BUT is was her fault to hold up the vote on the Coronavirus bill until she squeezed out at least 25 million dollars to give them It had absolutely nothing to do with the bill, it was a pet project. For that she is definitely at fault.

I had never even heard of this place before this" virus"


Posted 6:12 pm, 03/29/2020

Uh, huh.

And exactly how is this Pelosi's fault again?


Posted 4:38 pm, 03/29/2020

Pelosi insisted on putting non sense like the Kennedy center bailout in the China Flu relief package. I heard about the place in Austin. I don't see how they can legally not pay an employee for work performed. I would be reporting them if I worked there.

You see now who the Socialists help. How much did they give to the Grand Ole Oprey or festivals like Merlefest.


Posted 3:53 pm, 03/29/2020

Wait...how is this Nancy Pelosi's fault? Let me sit down first, becasue I'm sure this is going to be good.

How many businesses have you run successfully?


Posted 1:07 pm, 03/29/2020

I'd say they won't be the only one that pulls something like that. Did you see the company in Texas that is wanting to cut employee pay since everyone is getting $1200?

Corporations and large scale setups like the Kennedy are greedy ****.

That's $25,000,000 right down the drain. Thank Nancy Pelosi for that one.
