Conservative blasts funding in stimulus to Boeing

Rachel Bovard, senior policy director at the Conservative Partnership Institute, slammed Congress for including billions of funding for Boeing in its $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package.

The bill, that is expected to be signed by President TrumpDonald John TrumpTwitter CEO: 'Not true' that removing Trump campaign video was illegal, as president has claimed Biden formally clinches Democratic presidential nomination Barr says he didn't give 'tactical' command to clear Lafayette protesters MORE Friday afternoon, includes $17 billion dollars for the manufacturing giant.

"There's always a big regret at the end of these giant bills, and this is probably one of them," Bovard told Hill.TV Friday. "The $17 billion for Boeing is unconscionable. I don't know how you can justify it, I haven't seen any politician try."

The bill also gives significant aid to industries like airlines that have been hit hard by the pandemic as well as to small businesses.
