It's only socialism when the government check has someone else's name on it, not yours.

Actually IIRC if the funds were applied for properly, and spent properly for payroll only, a large portion of the loan was forgiven.


So basially half a loan, half a bail out/hand out from tax payers.

PPP loans are forgivable if they follow the guidelines.

Once more the stupid can’t seem to grasp the difference between socialism and shoring up the economy because THE GOVERNMENT shut it down...

No love for for Rand here, the money went to payroll not bonuses so I’m not overly worried about it. The problem is the Gov isn’t allocating/ enforcing enough.

You should probably learn what socialism is before trying to use it in a sentence.
