President Donald Trump's obsession with the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus may have started in part because of a self-described philosopher in China who is a fan of white nationalists, tweets anti-Semitic rhetoric and calls chloroquine "a Nazi drug that is here to teach a lesson to leftists about bias."

Oooh, we got us some Paycheck Protection Program frauders! (Forbes)
Adam Schiff's signed on as a cosponsor of Pramila Jayapal's Paycheck Guarantee Act, which they op-ed here. I think I prefer Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders's $2000 monthly UBI, because Jayapal's gets complicated.
After employers file a sworn statement with the IRS on the amount of revenue lost due to covid-19, the IRS would use 2019 tax filings to calculate a grant that totals the percentage of revenue loss multiplied by payroll and benefits for workers up to a salary cap of $90,000. Businesses would also receive an additional 25 percent to cover operating costs, such as rent, so they don't close permanently.
How do you determine how much you've lost? That's my only question, and okay it is not like I would say NO DON'T PASS JAYAPAL'S. Okay, and what about the already unemployed (or at least the ones in red states who are getting le dicked)? So I have two questions. (Washington Post)
