The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts informed members of the National Symphony Orchestra that they would no longer be paid just hours after President Trump signed a $25 million taxpayer bailout for the cultural center, according to an email obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Nearly 100 musicians will no longer receive paychecks after April 3, according to an email from the orchestra's Covid-19 Advisory Committee.



A veteran member of the orchestra, who requested anonymity for fear of reprisal, told the Washington Free Beacon that the decision "blindsided" musicians. The member welcomed the bailout package as necessary funding for the arts, but was stunned that it would not be used to cover payment for the artists. "It's very disappointing [that] they're going to get that money and then drop us afterward," the musician said. "The Kennedy Center blindsided us."

And Pelosi screamed that Trump shafted the little people in the coronavirus relief bill.

Why did she hold the bill hostage for the JFK Center for the Performing Arts? To make Hollywood happy. Hollywood, her DNC big donors and pretenders to care about everyday hard working US citizens. While they sit in their multi-million dollar mansions crying about how hard they have it during the stay at home recommendation. How many mansions does Pelosi have while screaming about how $3000 per family is not enough to help but the government MUST give Hollywood it's $25million or she won't give a dime to the families who are unemployed. Now we really know what the elitists and Hollywood types REALLY think about the "little people".

If anything should have been done with the 25 million that Pelosi demanded
Trump put in the bill or else she would make sure the bill would not pass,
it should have been to help the employees -
not a multi million dollar facility that only the richest of the rich elite can afford tickets to.

I don't care if the musicians are out of work, I could never afford to go there. Some Taxpayer money goes to a place where the majority of those who pay lots of taxes cannot afford to go.

I read that Valerie Jarrett and another well-known Obama crony have been the chairpersons of the JFK Center. So some others and myself suspected yet another in a long series of taxpayer $$$ handoffs to already-filthy-rich political insiders.

But in the last 36 hrs, I read that President Trump gave them both the Boot, and appointed new chairpersons - one of them Jon Voight.


Can anyone verify some or all of that info?

And how many small businesses could have been saved with 25 million ?
Performing Arts = folk (you know what folk I am talking about) that can't make it in the real world .
That money , at least for the most part , will end up in DNC campaign funds.

As of 2017, this is where the center stood:
projects.propublica.org...

Total revenue: $239,993,763
Net assets: $410,347,327
Salaries and wages: $73,993,421

I am guessing in the last couple of years those assets and revenue went up with the good economy.



Authorized by the 1958 National Cultural Center Act of Congress,[1] which requires that its programming be sustained through private funds, the center represents a public–private partnership. Its activities include educational and outreach initiatives, almost entirely funded through ticket sales and gifts from individuals, corporations, and private foundations...
It receives annual federal funding to pay for its maintenance and operation.

en.wikipedia.org...

If this is all an accurate reflection, that $25 million is supposed to go to the building upkeep itself. There is no freekin' way during all the CV stuff, the building needs emergency upkeep. Not buying it.

Eff Pelosi, eff the left. Their flagrance and disconnect is unnerving.

So tired of their BS and the clueless brain dead idiots that constantly defend and support the A-holes. The left does not GAF about anyone but themselves and their cronies. JFK center among a few other items had NO business being on that bill.

Would it be unreasonable if we used this money for something other than their social clubs? You know the ones....where you and I are not invited.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called out President Trump on Sunday over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, saying that his denial of the seriousness of the pathogen and his delay in ramping up the federal government’s response to it has proved “deadly” for Americans

......all while putting items like JFK in bill which slowed response to helping Americans. The hypocrisy is pathetic. How can people support this party of lies and deceit?

Re - mobile.twitter.com...

Pelosi is attempting to set up another impeachment trial.

Joe Biden is triggering an all-hands-on-deck panic.

I am not into US politics much...also not in my own country but if I look over the big drink and see what kind of people are representing the land of the free and brave I am very disappointed. It is as if their job is to get rich quick. Many years ago it took investigative journalist to reveal government corruption but now they do their shady business for everybody to see...if you give it a good look. Its almost a grab for all... If you are not willing to play that game there is no future for you as a politician.

my guess is that Only the 'Performing Artists' who were hired under a Contract agreement will be getting Paid out of that $25 million

the others who are hired-employees are SOOL (sadly-out-of-luck) an orchestra is how many specialists...? 150-ish?
