Several million Americans, who’ve lost jobs because of the pandemic, are about to be evicted from their apartments and homes. The House voted $50 Billion to hold these evictions off.
However, the present administration will not OK this benefit to renters, mortgage holders, and landlords. Mr. Trump allocates billions to a new Space warfare program, while the defense department loses hundreds of billions annually to cost over-runs.
It is so easy to spend billions more on our military, which is already more expensive than the next eight nations of the world. It was easy to spend a few millions blocking Central American refugees with our military. It was so easy to cut short aid to Puerto Rico Americans, who have yet to recover.
Our ages-old homeless problem is about to multiply exponentially. Families will be cast into the streets literally by several million. And now, the pandemic is increasing, rather than decreasing.
Nothing destroys a nation’s spirit like corruption of the people’s values by those entrusted with their leadership.
