The Kennedy Center
The $2 trillion economic stimulus to aid people out of work and businesses in trouble was passed with $25,000,000 earmarked for the Kennedy Center. I guess that the people there needed to be stimulated.
Let’s review how that organization is supposed to be funded. It was authorized by the 1958 National Cultural Center Act of Congress, which required that its programming be sustained through private funds. You can read the act for yourself, but trust me, that’s what it says. Its activities include educational and outreach initiatives, that are funded through ticket sales and gifts from individuals, corporations, and private foundations.
To boil it down, it’s a place for elites to congratulate themselves for being born better than you are. And they’re supposed to pay for the privilege of congratulating themselves. But the skinflint elites would like to be subsidized. Thus the $25M in tax funds.
It would be easy to blame Nancy Pelosi and her flying monkeys, but the Republicans are just as elite, just as special, and are also better than you are. So they gave the nod to the expenditure.
