Corruption during Covid-19

 

The population in the US as of now is supposedly around 331 million people. Though the stimulus checks are not for the entire population, even if we were to consider the entire population, the total amount spent comes to around $463 billion dollars assuming $1400 per person. Then, we need to ask the question, where is the remaining money, more than $1.4T, going? How about the previous two stimulus checks? 

Going by the peanuts, cashews, pistachios and nut cracks trickle down economics, we need to be certain that this is not one of those nut cracks.
