At the end of the day, we all know Boeing and Raytheon aren't going to go belly up under any circumstances... so there will be a return to the tax payers on this money they benefit from. At least it isn't like the solar energy companies Obama underwrote loans for that promptly went bankrupt and left the tax payers on the hook for billions in the country's last exercise in bailouts and stimulus spending.


Airlines are in big trouble, everywhere, even here, suppliers to aircraft, Rockwell Collins are about to make significant reductions in worker talent, and they make the stuff that is inside of aircraft, that includes the R&D, and likely the customising of.
Thing is, much of that stuff in amalgams has been going on before any virus, and the goal was the most profitable high end business in aviation, and they were all at that, like it or not, and that is where all the quiet money was going, so what is the immediate future now? not many are flying, demand is not there, gilt edged futures are definitely ungilded, and there's no light at the end of the tunnel as yet, and there is this American president yamming on that, "Nobody likes me"
That's what you have got.
A cold, light of the day perspective is dreadfully needed, in the absence of proper leadership.


You're choosing to focus on a single comment he made in a sea of other, more pertinent daily messages he has presented. This is like the Right deciding to focus solely on Obama's daily whining about being picked on by Conservative media outlets FOX. It was ridiculous then, it's ridiculous now.

It's better than free healthcare and free tuition "slipping" in. On the money scale, 30 billion is crumbs compared to what the other cost would have been.

The GOP also wants $1.7 Billion for a new FBI building right across the street from Trump's DC Hotel.



That means more jobs. You should be happy.

Is this a jobs bill? No, it isn't. It's an emergency relief bill, that addresses the fallout of the financial crisis facing millions of Americans and businesses due to the national health emergency that President Trump declared. It would take years for the $1.7 billion allocated for a new FBI building to actually trickle down to the workers and their families in need of a job yesterday.
