‘I DON’T WANT TO BE ROBBED BLIND’: Maher Blasts Dems, GOP for Inaction on COVID Relief Fraud

During a recent episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, the comedian and late-night host blasted both Democrats and Republicans, saying the nation was “robbed blind” by coronavirus relief fraud. Maher says neither party did anything about it.

“Maher noted that President Joe Biden would be extending the statute of limitations for investigating COVID-19 fraud. The government relied on the honor system during the pandemic to give out Paycheck Protection Program loans, which resulted in as much as $100 billion in fraud, The New York Times reported. The programs were largely abused by individuals who used fake names, listed fake businesses and provided false information in order to obtain the grants,” The Daily Caller reports.

“It doesn’t really make me a conservative, does it, that I don’t want to be absolutely robbed blind? Is there some number at which I go, ‘you are just taking my money and wasting it and letting people steal it.’”

“Nobody does any of their part!” Maher exclaimed.

“It makes me a little less excited about the money they’re planning to spend,” Maher said, in reference to the Inflation Reduction Act.
