No, it isn't moron.What "aid?"
Oh, you mean FEMA funds? That's like insurance, they paid in, they are entitled to get what they paid for.
NOTHING like the Trump regime.NOW if the GOP comes up with a $100 bill with $50 billion going to the National Rifle Association, $30b to the National Right to Life fund, $15b to MyPillow, THEN you would have something like the Sandy Bill - which funded every Nazi group but did nothing for the Sandy victims.

Building ramparts of secrecy around a $600 billion-plus coronavirus aid program for small businesses, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has moved from delay to denial in refusing outright to disclose the recipients of taxpayer-funded loans.
Mnuchin told Congress at a hearing this week that the names of loan recipients and the amounts are “proprietary information.” While he claimed the information is confidential, ethics advocates and some lawmakers see the move as an attempt to dodge accountability for how the money is spent.
But Mnuchin ditched that ambiguous position this week, making it clear at a Senate hearing that the administration does not plan to disclose the recipient names and amounts. While the SBA administers the program, Mnuchin’s Treasury Department has ultimate control over it.
“We believe that that’s proprietary information, and in many cases, for sole proprietors and small businesses, is confidential information,” Mnuchin said during the hearing by the Senate Small Business Committee.
