UPDATE: Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and Congress look to increase the PPP program by $200B, reports The Washington Post.
"Congress needs to act with speed and total focus to provide more money for this uncontroversial bipartisan program. I will work with Secretary Mnuchin and Leader Schumer and hope to approve further funding for the Paycheck Protection Program by unanimous consent or voice vote during the next scheduled Senate session on Thursday," McConnell said in a statement.
At CDMedia, we have the luxury of having thousands of people contact us daily from around the country regarding their current state of mind, financial situation, and the status of their small business.
No, Mr. President, it is not going well.
We also have the luxury of working from our computers, but many owners do not.
We are in touch with hundreds of Americans that run their own business; no one has received any funds that we know of. The infamous 'Up to $10k advance' ain't happening. There is no information. Nothing. It is false hope. The SBA is AWOL.
No money. No information. No hope.
The Paycheck Protection Program that you keep hyping every day hasn't happened. Maybe for a select few, but again, among those we know, no one has been approved, much less received any money.
You forced them to shut down. Through no fault of your own, you destroyed their business, their livelihood. Now they feel the government is destroying their families, their lives.
The stress for some is unimaginable, a lifetime's work gone in a few short days. There will be suicides.
Meanwhile, your Dr. Fauci gets on television and talks about your business being shut down is just an inconvenience?
Obviously he has not just laid off scores of employees and watched the human carnage.
Can you feel the rage I'm passing on from our readers?
This is the stuff that loses elections, not a virus.
Meanwhile the big banks are taking advantage of the situation, helping their big clients, if they are helping at all. We've written about the behavior of Bank of America. As you can see above, Citibank has done nothing. NO information. NO emails. NOTHING.
Are the Deep State bureaucrats intentionally trying to destroy small business? Are the big banks in cahoot? Bringing on the globalist oligarchy?
We realize you have a lot on your plate Mr. President. We realize it's not your fault. We realize you have people working for you on the problem. But frankly, after the last few years, how can you trust them?
This is all beginning to stink of Russia Hoax, impeachment, phase three.
This problem needs to be rectified Mr. President, or there won't be a second term. That you can count on.
These are the people that voted for you. Small business is what got you elected, and they're dying.
