Good news everyone, the Senate's bill still has $25 million for the Kennedy Center. What a relief to the small businesses going under because of #COVID19.


Looks like the Planned Parenthood issue is addressed by an affiliation clause which will bar Planned Parenthood clinics from receiving SBA loans (since PP is over 500 employees). Great work by @marcorubio and @SteveDaines.

If you're a small business, you have to take out a loan. But if you're a National Endowment for the Arts recipient, you get $75 million worth of GRANTS.

What a relief, the National Endowment for the Humanities also gets $75 million in grants.

These are the same agencies who get yearly appropriations money, btw. They've already been paid this year. This is extra.

Corporation for Public Broadcasting also gets $75 million. For #COVID19.

Let's not forget about Office of Museum and Library Services. They've already been funded this year. But why not throw them an extra $50 mill.

And because, why not pay yourselves. This is a public health crisis. Never let it go to waste, as they say.
