When the politicians on taxpayer funded salaries sit around and discuss which businesses to keep open and which businesses to shut down, they never consider limiting their salaries or cutting their funding. They simply force people out of business and offer nothing in return. In states that do offer some relief to shuttered businesses, the programs fall far short of the mark for small business owners, enrich already large corporations, or, like we reported out of California, puts millions in the pockets of murders, rapists, and child traffickers — some of whom are on death row. In the meantime, millions are facing unprecedented food shortages.
According to an analysis from Feeding America, food insecurity will hit 60 million people due to COVID-19 in the United States, which is an increase of 17 million people from pre-pandemic times. Supply line disruptions, lower levels of donations, and millions of unemployed people who’ve lost their jobs due to government-imposed lockdowns have created a massive strain on America’s food supply and more and more family’s are being pushed into a situation of food insecurity.
In the meantime, government leaders seemingly couldn’t care less about the plight of the people and continue to force business to close while offering zero support. Their callous attitudes and flouting of their own lockdown rules are almost palpable due to their brazen nature.thefreethoughtproject Food Lines Grow Miles Long as Politicians Break Rules to Dine at Fancy Restaurants, Take Vacations
