Lawmakers Pass Pandemic Stimulus Bill and Debate Another

"A four hundred eighty four billion dollar stimulus. Bill is now on the way to the president with a signature expected today. The bill includes more money for small business relief and aid for hospitals and Testing House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi today was historic day for us to once again path are now fourth bipartisan legislation to address Corona virus crisis. We're very pleased with the vote. Three eighty eight to five the owner of Ruth's Chris. Steak houses says it is refunding twenty million dollars in money from a previous pandemic stimulus package. The Treasury Department has asked publicly traded companies to return funding from the program following criticism from small independent businesses. That they missed out on the last round of aid. The new money isn't even out the door and lawmakers are already debating what's needed next among Democrats Republicans and the trump administration. There are sharp differences. Over what should be in the package and whether another package is even needed are Jalen spoke to journal Congressional reporter Natalie Andrews. Democrats wanted to get more money for states and local municipalities that have been affected by the pandemic into the bill that passed on Thursday. They were unsuccessful in negotiating that. And we'll definitely be pushing for it in this in any sort of future legislation. That is a sticking point Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader has said that he would support changes in federal law to allow states to file for bankruptcy instead of necessarily giving more money adding more money to the deficit. The governors have loudly disagreed with that Maryland. Governor Larry Hogan who is a Republican and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo a Democrat have said that they believe that there needs to be five hundred billion dollars to cover. The costs for states states are really facing just enormous cost. They're responding to the pandemic while also looking at unemployment in their states and so they're losing the tax revenue that they usually depend on to provide for services such as first responders Many states have pension systems that they need to fund. Those are all suffering right now with the next potential stimulus. Bill include more payments to tax payers. Nancy Pelosi win. I spoke to her on Wednesday said that she does see a need for more direct payments to individuals some other lawmakers have also called for that as well and there's also some perhaps more creative proposals out there than just a straight check. Some people are calling for some sort of paycheck guarantee in order to allow people to continue receiving the money that they have been making so I would imagine that if the next bill heats up and if economy is still in the same place that will definitely be part of this conversation and you know a fourth phase of stimulus would create an interesting scenario where the White House is at odds with Senate Republicans true. The White House has put out a list of things they're looking for. The president sent a tweet a few days ago. That had a whole list of things including infrastructure We interviewed House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday. She said she thought infrastructure was for down the road that right now. The legislation needed to focus on mitigation. But she did say that. There are certain things infrastructure wise that the pendulum is highlighting such as the need to expand broadband access in rural areas with so many people working from home and kids trying to do school at home. It really shows that there are limitations to access and broadband. She also talked about the need for clean water so there could be some consensus between the president and Speaker Pelosi and not necessarily Senate Republicans who are not wanting to spend more money that was Natalie Andrews speaking with chair Waylon new reporting

Small Business Rescue Earned Banks $10 Billion In Fees

Small Business Rescue Earned Banks $10 Billion In Fees

"Right now small businesses are desperate for loans. Congress allocated three hundred and forty nine billion dollars for small businesses. That money was gone in less than two weeks but not all of it went to small businesses around. Ten billion dollars went to banks to cover processing fees. Npr's Laura Sullivan has been looking into financial records. Good Morning Laura. Good morning at ten billion dollars is a lot of money. What are banks doing to to earn that money? So banks like J. P. Morgan Chase Bank of America. Pnc and dozens of others are processing the loans. They're essentially the middlemen. They take the applications from their small business clients and they funnel those requests up to the Small Business Administration which approves the loan and what's important to note here. Is that the money the banks are getting for? Their clients isn't their money. I mean this isn't bank money. This is taxpayer money. Taxpayers are funding loans for small businesses to cover things like payroll rent and utilities during the crisis. Okay something for taxpayers to think about. Let me ask you. What's the incentives for the banks to process all these small business loans so fees? We took a deep dive into the public financial records of companies and banks and we found the banks are making billions of dollars in fees. According to the programs rules banks can take anywhere from one to five percent of the entire loan and keep it as a fee depending on how much the loan is worth so any loan up to three hundred fifty thousand dollars. The banks get five percent of that money alone between two million ten million dollars. The banks get one percent of that money so for example the parent company of. Ruth's Chris Steak House. Got A ten million dollar loan from the program J. P. Morgan Chase which according to financial records process that loan thought one hundred thousand dollar fee for this one time transaction and remember these loans. Carry no risk for J. P. Morgan or the other banks. It's taxpayer. Money guaranteed by the small business administration and the loans require less work. The government is required unless vetting compared to WANNA bank lending its own money now banks do normally get fees for processing. Sba loans but not in this volume with these dollar amounts were over a two week period. And you've been looking into it in the dollar amount that you've found as I said is a ten billion dollars have gone to bank so far. Yes bring you break down. The value of the loans and use the formula government established is adds up to more than ten billion dollars in fees that went to the banks just in the past two weeks. So what are the banks saying banks saying? Well look. We're doing our job. We're supposed to get paid. So we reached out to some of the biggest banks involved in the program including PNC JP P. Morgan Bank of America. Some said they have to pay for thousands of employees that are working twelve eighteen hour days to get the loans push through and are now preparing or hoping for Congress to authorize another round. They said while betting might not be as thorough as it would be a regular bank loan. There is still significant document take like document. Collection Review Wells. Fargo says it's going to donate its money to charity but it was required to do that. As part of a government agreement falling problems bank had in two thousand eighteen. None of the other banks have said they intend to follow suit. So there's a really interesting question here. Which is that you know. Thousands of small businesses said. They were shut out. They couldn't get loans. Is there a reason to think that they didn't get loans? Because the banks knew they could make more in fees if they just worked with clients with really really large loans there are currently five class action lawsuits in California and New York alleging. Just that and the data does suggest more large loans were process before smaller loans but bank say that is simply not true. J. P. Morgan for one says they had different offices handling different loan sizes and there were simply fewer large loans so they were able to get through more them.

Angry small businesses: Shake Shack gets money but we don't?

"We'll be asking about companies alike shake shack and Ruth Chris steak house that were approved so quickly for some loans when these loans are actually meant for small businesses now as we reported yesterday shake shack gave back the money that they receive for from the P. P. R. P. program but other large chain restaurants have not and so what you explain to our audience why that may have happened I know that shake shack in a statement said that the rules regarding who's eligible for this money and who is not it was very confusing that they ended up going by the number of people they have in their physical locations which ended up being lower than the number of of employees the government said you needed to have to be eligible for the program right so the program was he's a small business relief act to keep people employed and it was directed towards companies with five hundred employees or less but I think part of the number of exceptions in the rules specifically by industry and one of the biggest exceptions was part of the role was for hotels and restaurants and they said as long as you own five hundred people at any one location you can apply for the loans and they still supposedly Max the winding out at ten billion but Bruce Chris ended up applying twice and getting twenty billion so there were the biggest exception because of course here is restaurants but there are other companies that you wouldn't think of as small businesses seventy publicly traded companies including one publicly traded company that is in the cruise line business so it's definitely going to be hit well I got a loan from Citi bank and it has a hundred million dollars in cash in the bank besides outside of the PPP morning before applied a hundred billion dollars in in in in the back and so you wouldn't think of that as a small business for a company that should be tapping of fun that's meant for mom and pop businesses local restaurants that don't have access to large capital

Under Fire, Shake Shack Returns $10 Million in Small Business Funds

"Big news yesterday. Burger chains shake shack is returning. It's ten million dollars. Pp loan that people of course is short for the payment protection program. That's part of the Federal Government's cares act. It was touted as a bailout for small business. The low interest loans forgivable if at least three quarters of the money is used to keep workers on payroll but a number of large publicly traded companies including certain shake shack managed to get multimillion dollar loans before the program ran out of funds last Thursday that angered millions of owners of considerably smaller businesses. Who were locked out of the program? Here's what happened. The PPI was intended for businesses with fewer than five hundred employees. The Small Business Administration's definition of small business but it included a clause that allowed companies with multiple locations to apply as long as there were fewer than five hundred workers at each location shake. Shack is public company. Employing eight thousand people across close to two hundred stores in the US. It's valued at one point. Seven billion dollars according to Forbes but fewer than forty five people make burgers and fries at any single shake shack store that's far below the PP's single location cab. When the program was announced the company had already furloughed or laid off about one thousand workers so shake shack applied for the P and it turns out. They weren't the only multimillion dollar company to do so other applicants included. Ruth's Chris Steak House. Three hundred million dollar cruise line and four hundred million dollar data storage company and that's created a big problem for small businesses. According to Bloomberg two percent of the firms approved for loans got thirty percent of the total funds Solo preneurs and small businesses faced with the prospect of going out of business permanently. Were furious to learn that more than a dozen public companies with revenues greater than one hundred million dollars had received portions of the funds leaving little for them according to Bloomberg four inches. Ruth's Chris employs almost six thousand people. It's sales topped half a billion dollars. Last year. It received twenty million dollars in P. Money. Four hundred million dollar pot belly corporation chain of sandwich shops also employs six thousand people. It received million dollars in the low interest funds. Bloomberg's Ed but shake shack has since apologized for applying for the loan in an open letter. Sunday. Owner Danny Meyer and CEO Randy. Rudy said the. Pp's initial guidance was confusing. They wrote quoting here. The best chance of keeping our teams working off the unemployment line and hiring back are furloughed laid off employees would be to apply now in hoped things would be clarified in time close quote. They were losing more than a million dollars a week. At that time last week the company was able to sell equity on the public market and raise one hundred fifty million dollars as a result Meyer. Garate decided to return their peop- funds quoting again so that those restaurants who need it most can get it now. They said in a statement. They acknowledged their good fortune and having access to other funds and said until every restaurant that needs it has had the same opportunity to receive assistance. We're returning hours. Well responses ran the gamut from laudatory to highly critical some observers praised owner Danny Meyer is noble and pledged to be lifelong customers others were livid saying restaurant. Chains should never have applied in the first place. It'll take time to see whether public opinion will tilt toward shake shack or against it. However the company's actions received a hearty congratulations in one place by Monday. Evening it stock was up seven percent. In contrast. Ruth's Chris fell seven percent. Potbellies was also down by yesterday afternoon. No other major restaurant chains or public companies had stepped forward to follow shake shacks lead

Small business loan funds are tapped out

Small business loan funds are tapped out

"Marriage. It's complicated to be amazing. The the upshot is it is complicated and some unknown percentage of Americans wound up getting stimulus checks this week at the same time as some unknown percentage of small business owners wound up getting the PC checks this week. Paycheck protection plan Not all of them have gone out yet. But I'm I'm assuming that within the week nearly all of that initial three hundred and forty nine billion will go out to small business owners. It is clearly not enough and while the people who didn't get stimulus checks on mostly super annoyed about I've seen some people saying like I got some weird windfall income in twenty. At and then. That means I'm not eligible but I should be eligible any any money like there are definitely people who should be getting stimulus checks in on the real anger. I'm seeing is from small business owners who just didn't have the right banking relationships and didn't manage to get their PCP applications in and they are just furious that money has run out and they aware they can end up with nothing. Fox is that thirteen point seven percent of the P P P loans went to the construction industry versus nine point one percent of the P P P loans which one small business owner told. My colleague stands for WHO Poop Poop then to the restaurant industry? Now the construction industry so far in March Last twenty nine thousand jobs and the restaurant industry march las four hundred seventeen thousand jobs yet. The construction industry was the F. top industry beneficiary ficiary of the PP loans. Which kind of I think is a very telling way of talking about how the program was poorly structured and like Felix was saying benefited those who had the good relationships with their banks over those who probably needed the money even more. But just don't have that kind of relationship aren't as savvy about applying through the money like there are some law firms that were out there. Like drumming up interest in getting these loans and Like a franchise restaurants like. Ruth's Chris. Steak House got Twenty million dollars. Pp loans also. It's just I think was a poorly show was definitely this weird carve out so to to be eligible for the people you need to be a small businesses with fewer than five hundred employees asterisk. And then this Astra's all you can be a restaurant with any number of employees so we screw steakhouse as five thousand employees and they managed to muscle up to different subsidiaries which they decided eligible for Ppo so they got twice the maximum and people are looking at them going look. You're a publicly traded company. This money was not designed for you and that twenty million dollars could have gone to a genuine small business which really needed the cash right now. But I think that there's a little bit of a false scarcity issue is not real scarcity issue. No it's a real scarcity that's been created but doesn't need to be. I don't think the issue here is companies getting too much money. I think the issue here is that it was too small to begin with. It shouldn't have been designed in such a way to go through the banking system. It should have. I think a lot of just been very similar to how we did the personal payments. I realize it's going to be harder if it was simply done. From the IRS sending out based on like corporate taxes but at the end of the day we need firms to get money. We can allocate so much more money to this than we already are so I think arguing between firms is less the issue the issue that we just need more money to go out and I think if they haven't at three hundred forty nine billion a lot of the anger an avatar would not be that like they're talking about another two hundred and fifty which I suspect also won't be enough but I also suspect that if they add another three hundred fifty or so then it probably will be enough so I don't understand why they're trying to sort of minimize the amount of money that they're spending on this when it's obvious that it's the outcome right now is deeply unfair and you need to allow the small businesses who didn't have the right kind of banking relationships to be able to compete on an equal playing field with the ones who did. And so why a eking out these trenches why they think well we'll give you three fifty and then if that turns out to be not enough we'll give you another two fifty and if that turns out to be not enough maybe we'll give you a little bit more just allocate like a trillion dollars or something and then any money left over you can back and use for something else. I mean it seems like there's a real prejudice against there's no other way to look at it and say oh the the federal government sees small businesses completely differently than the large businesses. That are able to tap into this all this this river of bed money and be okay and then making these small businesses kind of lake. Go begging for money. The there is a big family. Which is the big river of fed money for big businesses which is a big river of money and is actually working pretty well is loans all of it needs to be paid back every penny. The small businesses are not lunged at basically grunts dressed up as loans. And for that reason. You need to. You need to raise the money from Congress. You can just magic the money out of thin from the FAD and so congress is going to be sitting there going. Who Second Nettie is going. Oh this is you know fiscal blah blah blah. And so it becomes harder. One of the things I wrote about in my news out of this week was the way that the Federal Reserve and the Treasury been working together to really maximize the amount of money that is going into the economy but the P. Program is somewhere that really the Federal Reserve. Come help much. They they have said they're going to start buying up these. Pp Lennon's banks like Wells Fargo. Who really need to get mafia balance-sheets but that super marginal really you need Congress to allocate capital in Congress is about as functional as you'd expect it to be right now. Yeah so now. We're what's emerging is really this like to tear response to this crisis where small businesses and individuals are kind of left twiddling their thumbs. Not they're not getting the money they need right away. Small businesses are GONNA go under and businesses. Thanks to the Fed even notes loans are GonNa probably be okay are going to swoop in and take over there. They're going to be the ones popping up in where the small businesses kind of failed and at the end of the day. If we ever get out of this we're just GONNA see more inequality in the US. I mean the one thing I will say though is that like this has been there is so much more aid and so much more aid more quickly this time around than we've ever seen before in it is far from perfect. And I think we're all in agreement that this should have been structured differently in should've been structured better but I like I guess I would say that. Yes you know. It is probably likely that a lot of small businesses are going to fail and that is horrible. That shouldn't be happening. And that is going to be a fault of poor response a response but like I the one thing I will say. Is You know we are just really starting to see this money coming out now so we still don't totally know what the effect is going to be one thing. The one thing that we do know is the. I've been hearing from small business on this. Who Literally said I needed that? Pp money in the first trunch. If I didn't infest ranch I have to shut down. This is the big businesses in the S. and P. Five hundred. The biggest businesses in America is basically what the S. and P. Five hundred bouncing back up thanks to all of the liquidity that the Fed is providing. I think emily is absolutely right. That it is. This is one of those periods where inequality between businesses has been massively exacerbated in the big your balance sheet the more access to capital markets and generally the Ludger. You are the better off. You are with very few exceptions and there's no question that's going to be bad for everyone right. You have more of these big businesses taking over. It means more monopolies cornering different industries. It means lower pay for people at Wieden pay disparity. I mean it's really although if you look at men here like that the companies the I mean I look. I don't disagree with you in the sense that like. I don't think it's a good thing. If we have a bunch of small businesses going under I don't think it's a good thing if we have like greater monopoly power. I completely agree with you on that. Although the one thing I will say. Is that working for a larger company. You tend to be paid better that so the idea that if you tend to be the worst if it working for smaller companies and you have a large companies. This is one of the long term trends which is absolutely clear. Is that the total employment in the S&P. Five hundred has been trending downwards for decades. And you have you know. Large company says suddenly the trillion dollar companies out. There like Microsoft have a lot of employees. But they don't have nearly as many employees as like you know. Hundred Billion dollar companies did twenty years ago. And so. Yeah if you're lucky enough to work for Microsoft that's great but that's not the source of employment.
