Erickson: You should take that money back

Posted

This is regarding U.S. Rep. Debbie Lesko introducing a bill to allow the federal government to take back the money it gave to any Planned Parenthood clinics that received the federal Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program monies.

That is ridiculous!

Hey Ms. Lesko, how about doing your job and not allowing the Navajo Nation casinos to receive possibly between $4.7 million and $11 million from the same loan program?

They should receive no monies under this PPP Act as they do not pay a penny in federal taxes — so why do they receive any monies in return?

Get with the program and do your homework, Ms. Lesko.

The casinos take and take some more but never give any money to the federal government. You do not have my vote on this.

At least Planned Parenthood helps those in need, whereas the casinos do nothing to help their community or the nation.

Alas, they do not seem to be able to help their own people.
Some don’t even have water or bathrooms in their home.

Are they fattening up their own individual bank accounts?
