Editor’s Note: Here is an interview of Matt Taibbi on the recent US stimulus/bailout. Matt likens this stimulus to the bailout in 2008. While almost all of us are hit by the social/health and financial effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the vast amount of stimulus money that the US Congress recently passed (with only one objection — by AOC) goes to big Corporations, rather than to those who really need it such as the hospitals, the working class and small business not to speak of the homeless. Matt Taibi is cohost on Rolling Stone‘s weekly Useful Idiots (https://www.rollingstone.com/results/#?q=useful%20idiots) plus his own site taibbi.substack.com.
