The Small Business Administration is saying that the money allocated for a first round of grants/loans to keep businesses afloat until the COVID-19 crisis is over has almost been exhausted:
NEW: SBA expects to run out of money for emergency coronavirus loans for small businesses imminently—*this afternoon,* sources tell me. The $349 billion in the PPP program is meant to help cover payroll.

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi is back at home in San Francisco bragging about Democrats blocking another round of funding:
Pelosi pausing late night interviews about ice cream in her freezer to congratulate Democrats for blocking small business paychecks the night before funding runs out.

Nancy's got more flavors of ice cream than Baskin-Robbins, and that's in just one of the freezers. pic.twitter.com/S9KPNyn19S

See! Quarantining yourself at home is as easy and delicious as blocking relief bills.
Watch the speaker of the working class party Nancy Pelosi showing the poors how to cope in the new depression. It’s easy! You just get your massive commercial-grade freezers “re-stocked” with luxury ice cream in every flavor. https://t.co/dAZXABQGvn

She’s so relatable…
I honestly can't believe she is *this* tone deaf. FFS, there are a lot of people in my area who are visiting the food banks each week hoping to get enough to feed their families, and she's showing off her two spendy-ass fridges full of mail-order ice cream.

Wait. I just looked it up.
That shit is $12 a PINT.
$48 for a gallon of ice cream? AYFKM? https://t.co/Cvat8KVdby

We noticed that not many late-night hosts and journalists aren’t asking Pelosi about that. Gee, wonder why!
