  1. I see that the White House is going to charge the press money for their daily COVID test! Bwahaha. Why pay for it when Psaki only says, “I’ll circle back to you on that”?

  2. And you elected these morons?

    City of El Paso wants $8 million in tax money for NE vaccine clinic that isn’t vaccinating:

    Months after spending nearly $40 million in CARES Act money on COVID-19 vaccine clinics that still aren’t being used to give shots, the City of El Paso is planning another multi-million dollar investment into the project.

    City finance leaders tell KFOX14 the additional cost was part of their plan all along.

    Last week, the El Paso City Council took the first step in issuing debt to cover $141 million worth of city projects.

    City leaders said more than $98 million of the bond projects had already been approved as part of previous public safety bonds, but the rest were proposed certificates of obligation.

    These would be bonds the city could issue that they would commit to pay back using tax dollars.

    The more than $40 million in bonds would go to a range of projects, including $8 million to the city’s Northeast health clinic.

    The clinic was one of five buildings the city bought in November to give out coronavirus vaccines, spending $37.5 million in CARES Act money on the project.
