Bill Gates Attacks U.S., Praises China: ‘China Did A Lot Of Things Right At The Beginning’ (VIDEO) – Left-wing billionaire Bill Gates attacked the United States during a CNN interview on Sunday while praising communist China, claiming that China “did a lot of things right at the beginning” of the coronavirus outbreak that originated in Wuhan.

Yes, Hospitals Get Paid More For Coronavirus-Coded Patients, Even If They Haven’t Been Tested – Hospitals get paid more money if a patient is coded for the novel coronavirus, even if they haven’t been tested in some states, multiple fact-checking sites have confirmed, including USA Today, Politifact, and Snopes. Hospitals get a 20% add-on for COVID-19-coded patients and roughly three times as much if such patients are placed on a ventilator.

In the beginning of April, physician and State Sen. Scott Jensen (R-MN) notified the public of the policy and later emphasized on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” that “anytime health care intersects with dollars, it gets awkward.” – READ MORE

Trump Asks Why American Taxpayers Should Bail Out “Poorly Run, Democrat” States – Pouring gasoline on a fire started by Mitch McConnell last week, when the Senate Majority leader said there would be no taxpayer bailout for US states and that he is open to allowing states to declare bankruptcy – rather than sending governors more federal money to deal with their own ballooning deficits, moments ago President Trump tweeted a “question” that is sure to incite the states’ – and media’s – ire, namely why should taxpayers be bailout out mostly “poorly run, in all cases Democrat run” states.
