Government’s small business loan program is out of money

Government's small business loan program is out of money 1


On Thursday morning, the $349 billion emergency small business lending program officially tapped out. The Small Business Association officially ran out of money for the Paycheck Protection Program, according to a message for lenders posted on the administration's website.

Negotiations on Capitol Hill have yet to generate a path forward to replenish the money, all as the US economy continues to stagger under the pressure of near-nationwide closures.

    • If you need to obtain a lost email? Got that spouse that you are suspicious of cheating on you? I completed my divorce with my ex husband after contacting or on WhatsApp +14347678160 for the best iPhone spy key-logger (I know its illegal but I could afford it). You won’t need victim’s phone to install and you have access to( In my case I didn’t need to gain access to my ex husband’s phone ):
      I had access to all Calls both incoming and outgoing, all text messages, WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Skype, Pictures and Videos, Emails, GPS Tracking.

    • Pelosi certainly doesn’t. This was supposed to be a very simple and quick decision. Top off the funds for small businesses. Nope. We need term limits now. These clowns in congress shouldn’t still be around after 30+ years.

    • The Democrats only care about their identity politics agenda.

  4. The giant corporations got theirs, I bet.

      @Blair Kullaj I was one of the first my 33 series confirmation was in the low 3k not 30k or 300k but 3k I should have been one of the first people funded if it was first come first served. Go to the small business reddit and see how many of us who filled in the first hours where passed over and then tell me they could only help so many. Obviously there was a pecking order and we small businesses who have every penny invested into our dream job where passed over to help bigger small businesses( with less than 500 employees because 499 employees means you are a SMALL business) .

      ​@Best True Crime Documentary Sorry to hear. The government fucked the people big time again. No surprise here. 350bill / $25000 dollar max a small biz could have gotten have gotten =14,000,000‬ people/businesses on first come first serve. Something fishy is going on here. I was in the 360K conf.

    • The form they fill out for bailout is literally one page whereas my unemployment was at least 5 or 6. Did you run a large scale corporation that jerks off politicians? Here take MORE money on TOP of the tax breaks we give you every year.

    Feel like a revolution is starting to brew

    • @ A J The Senate worked all weekend to hammer out a bill for small business relief. Then in comes Pelosi with a massive list of crap to add to the bill including election funds, and student debt relief. All of it was done just so the bill would be rejected and the Liberal media would report to morons like you that it’s Trumps Fault and you of course believe it.

      You’re a stupid tool A J

    • Don’t try to educate the liberals. They would rather side with a murderous dictatorship. Also wanted open borders and free healthcare for all. Weeeeeee fantasy land. Imagine how much more of an issue this would be with all the illegals we would be taking care of

    • @ Tanner Smith Here you go since you’re so fucking stupid you can’t look things up yourself. It doesn’t matter you’ll just ignore it and keep drinking the Kool AId because you’re a brainwashed tool. quit listening to the main stream media learn to think for yourself if you have enough intelligence.

  8. We applied as soon as it was possible and got an email 12 hours later that the money was already gone.

    • Lauri Rohr yeah, I heard he sent it to the Russians…..

      @Jacob Steenhuysen So did we. Full amount applied for.

    • @Lauri Rohr bs. Pelosi and the Dems keep trying to throw there stupid political agendas into the bill that have nothing to do with helping small business but progressive/ regressive ideas like the green new deal and etc. They should worry about doing that separately not for something like this.

    • That’s because all the money went to his rich friends first we just got the leftovers

      James Andrews Also, bail out for the American people? Wtf? You mean that $1.2k check given out? And 6 months of not needing to pay your college loans?

    • @James Andrews Trumps first budget if I remember was unanimously voted down? Wasn’t it a severely modified budget that got through his first year, just like obama’s. The plan was to eliminate debt in 10 years but essentially all the cuts that could do that were taken out, its a given that a lot of people opposed cutting government spending.
      Edit: once again on memory the above doesn’t include tax cuts which if implemented would have decreased the USA feds revenue so that it wouldn’t be debt free in 10 years. There were a lot of problems with it that weren’t fixed, and probably made worse, going through congress.

    • James Andrews | April 16, 2020 at 8:18 PM | Reply

      @Ball Python Yes his first budget was voted down by a republican house and Senate, but his first budget also had a deficit.

      His first budget transferred funds from entitlements to military but still had a deficit larger than inherited. We could back in forth over entitlements vs military but this is a budget discussion between the two of us.

      He increased the deficit in his proposed budget before it was shot down he is outspending Obama.

      He also sent more jobs to Mexico than Obama, all for an OPEC deal. Lol keep sucking the orange carrot I’ll stick to the Kool Aid

  10. Did people think any of that money was goin to small business 🤦🏻‍♂️

    “Money to pay their mortgage interest”?!

    Those, along side student loans, credit card debt and rent, should have been the first things canceled during this time.

    The banks are already getting backstopped by the Fed with unlimited credit.

    How about they bail us out for a change.

    Also, opening up in May risks all the progress we made so far.

    The thing about viral pandemics is that mitigation never ends until you have an effective vaccine that are widespread and readily available.

    Once we flatten that curve, we have to constantly work to keep it flat.

    If we had the testing and monitoring capabilties like South Korea, we could do a very coordinated, slow re-opening of certain areas.

    But we are still some months away from that.

      jakeizlove – We’re already there. Trump”s deficit is rising 3x faster than Obama’s did. I mean….we had to pay for those ultra wealthy tax cuts somehow. This is like adding another 10 gallons of water to the Titanic after it already hit the iceberg. The outcome will be the same….it’s just a matter of how quickly you get there.

    • @jakeizlove You moron they bail out banks and the rich every other day with TRILLIONS.

      Why are you so dumb? Why are you a slave to your owners?

    • It’s a breath of fresh air to hear someone actually using their brains for once. Thank you for existing.

    Funny how all the SBA money is gone, but we’re also at the highest level of unemployment since the Great Depression. That money was supposed to keep the companies running and paying employees. Huh. That sure is curious.

    • Actually a big reason we saw a major spike is due to the higher lvl business and the mom and pop shops. The large corporation cuts all the employees to keep the top satisfied since they waste their money on stock buybacks and the mom and pop shops cant get a single answer from the banks unless they employ 50 or more people and they cant keep people around if no one is working.

      The big biz ones are loans not free money same with the auto bailout it’s was repayed in full plus interest from Chrysler and GM

  19. Term limits for congress, people.

    Term limits.

    • If people really hated them so much, how are they still in office?

    • @Anonymous because people dont vote for who is the better candidate. They vote for a name that is familiar or for the letter next to their name (D/R)

    • Agreed people like Bernie, Pelosi, Steny Hoyer,
      Marcy Kaptur, Ron Auden, Chuck Schumer, Pat Roberts, Patrick Leahy, Ed Markey, and then pick your 9 from the republican side… all of them hundreds of years combined…AOC unfortunately will be on that list for the rest of her life … they don’t like term limits since they would lose all the benefits, six figures salaries, insurance hardly any work…
      To be exact: Congressional pay is $174,000 per year, which, at an 80% rate, equates to a lifelong pension benefit of $139,200. 5 All benefits are taxpayer-funded. Additionally, members of Congress enjoy the same Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) as all other federal employees, which is similar to a 401(k).Sep 23, 2019

      They should hold a job/career, allow for a minimum wage with no lifetime benefits or pension. It’s a racket and if they care for the people no matter what side of the isle this should t be a problem. They can save the foot print and do business virtually and meet when needed.
