If you, or someone you know, is concerned about the fairness of student loan forgiveness, please go here and search your zip code. Then peruse the list of forgiven PPP loans until you find, say, a plastic surgeon with a $152K forgiven loan. Or a law firm with a $1.8 million forgiven loan. Hey, here’s a church with a $20K forgiven loan. Oh, here’s a pizza business that pretty much only does takeout – $180K. The list goes on and on.
My point, of course, isn’t that the PPP program was bad, or that these people are undeserving, but let’s get real about the target of “government handouts” in the last couple of years. Hint: it sure as hell wasn’t the poor or even the middle class.
