40% (100's of BILLIONS) of small business PPP loans were snapped up by the giant corps, much of it

fraudulently, under the Trump administration.

1. F

I really mean F.

If they lied / committed fraud (and I am sure many did not) they should be indicted.

Trump's gang wouldn't let anyone do oversight. Remember?

2. What about franchise owners?

Not just fast food franchises like McD's, BK, etc, but ones like Mr Rooter, Stanley Steemer, etc. They might get their standardization from the company, but otherwise, they are small businesses.

4. Oh, for sure, but the US is hellbent (or was, under Rump) on pulling itself

even further away from what many other advanced nations' models are/where. Pretty much across the board. Hopefully Biden not only turns the supertanker around but moves it a wee bit (not expecting all that much given our ultra slim 'Manchin as kingmaker' margins.) towards a Nordic model. Pretty hard to do that with the filibuster still in play and the opposing party determined to drive the nation off a cliff with its death cult of stupidity, hate, and white power madness.
