I guess if there's no Covid threat, no one needs Covid money

[quote]The U.S. has spent more than half of [b]$3 trillion[/b] in economic rescue funds passed by Congress -- with little of the oversight intended to ensure the money goes to the right places.

Three new oversight bodies are [b]barely functional[/b]: A special inspector general was only recently sworn in, a congressional panel still lacks a chairman and staff, and President Donald Trump quickly removed the official who was going to lead a separate accountability committee.

At the same time, about $2 trillion in stimulus money has already been distributed, according to an estimate from the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a nonpartisan group focused on fiscal policy.
Raise your hand if you saw this coming 馃檵
Looks like Trump is ripping off the taxpayer again. Who would have predicted that?

The key takeaway is "NO OVERSITE". I'm not a Trump guy but on a state level, where you and I should really be worried, the money is just walking out the door unchecked....we need to hold our local leaders accountable as well - maybe even moreso!

@Ynotisay I just dread when all this reaches some kind of zero hour - all the bills come due, the dollar crashes, etc. Again, I hate to be "the sky is falling" but it's just scary!
@luctoretemergo If nothing else has been learned from this I sure hope it's how precarious our economy and, moreover, our democracy really is.
