Planned Parenthood affiliates got $80M in coronavirus stimulus funds?

Post by Presto Kensho » Thu May 21, 2020 5:13 pm

It's more and more apparent that Planned Parenthood operates more as a racket for taxpayer money than as an advocate for women's health:
Thirty-seven Planned Parenthood affiliates applied for and received a total of $80 million in loans from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” has learned — and now the federal government wants the money back, saying the affiliates should have known they weren’t eligible for the coronavirus stimulus payouts.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) is reaching out to each involved Planned Parenthood affiliate explaining that affiliates of larger organizations with more than 500 employees aren’t eligible for PPP distributions, Fox News is told. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PFFA) alone has had more than 600 employees...

The largest single government loan was a $7.5 million allotment to the Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties in California. One Planned Parenthood affiliate received a loan but declined it...

This past January, Planned Parenthood reported a record-high number of abortions and government funding for 2018-2019. At the same time, Planned Parenthood claimed abortion constituted just a small percentage – 4 percent in 2018-2019 – of its services, and that federal funds didn’t go directly to abortions.

Some 98 percent of PPP loans have been less than $1 million; the program has provided an average loan of $118,000. Canceled or returned funds can be used during future PPP rounds.

What point is there to having a law on the books which bans taxpayer-funding for abortions when Planned Parenthood gets to collect $80 million intended for small business relief?

Yes, as well as trading in body parts, harvesting adrenochrome, using taxpayer money to fund the Democrats, promoting the killing of humans etc.

The Satanism/Maraism will not end until it is shut down.

The sickest thing about this is that Planned Parenthood didn't need the money in the first place, since abortion clinics weren't affected by the shelter in place order.

Agreed. The way that Democrats cynically smuggle shameful funding for themselves into omnibus bills, rescue bills and the like is a disgrace.

I suspect that this practice will be less viable once the swamp is further exposed. They will come to known by their deceit.

Republicans include lots of pork-barrel spending in their bills too. Also, while we should be concerned about Democrats wanting to fund Planned Parenthood, we should also be concerned about Republicans like Trump wanting to give unlimited money to defense contractors. Both abortion clinics and defense contractors profit from mass killing.

RINOs, neo-cons and cuckservatives, yes.
MAGA / America First, no.

Trump doesn't "want to give unlimited money", nor "profit from killing". That's nonsense. He does however want a strong military after Obama left it intentionally depleted

The Pentagon is notorious for wasting trillions of dollars. What has Trump done to stop this waste?

Greetings,

Spend money well in a targeted way rather than lining his back pocket with it?

:shrug:

Declaration of State of Emergencies to redirect budget funding from pork towards actual defense requirements (like the wall).

:shrug:

That's one of the advantages of having a successful businessman in the White House. He doesn't need the money, personally, and he's had decades of experience of making big decisions that affect his personal bank balance... so he's used to making major investments without being blasé about it.

Anyway, military and planned parenthood? I think you've wandered off your own topic.

Profiting off of killing is wrong, whether it's an abortion clinic or a defense contractor.

But preparing to defend yourself and your sovereignty is right and acknowledged by the Buddha.

There's a lot of space between the two that you're just not acknowledging in your off topic detour.
