Biden's COVID-19 relief bill can already claim credit for saving 27,000 airline jobs

The airline industry has been hit especially hard during the COVID-19 pandemic because, for some reason, lots of us don’t want to hop into a crowded metal cylinder that, even in a non-COVID world, was roughly the hygienic equivalent of licking the bald heads of random Anytime Fitness customers during flu season.

I felt bad for the industry and its employees, but what can you do when the government is run by a coterie of clueless cretins who think the way to save a drowning man is to immediately add “lifeguard duties” to Jared Kushner’s portfolio?

In case you haven’t heard, we now have a real president who actually, you know, cares about people. So government works again, because it’s being allowed to work again.

And boom: Right out of the gate, President Biden has saved a shite-ton of jobs—airline jobs.
