On Monday, the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) completed and published its report to Congress on the initial government response to the COVID pandemic. The report reviews in detail the four coronavirus relief bills that have been enacted to the tune of $2.6 trillion at this point and delineates the specific obligations of the government in six specific relief areas, one of which is Business Loan Programs. Diving a bit deeper in this category, the GAO highlights the possibility of fraud within some of the government programs and describes the process by which the government will identify and stop such fraud within the Payroll Protection Program. They advise that federal government contractors will utilize an automated review tool to identify questionable PPP loans over $2 million. As those loans are identified, they will be investigated manually and subjected to a further quality assurance review. In a separate report issued by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) we see the true cost to our economy of the coronavirus relief bills passed thus far. Federal debt in 2020 will equal 98% of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and in Fiscal Year 2021, which begins October 1, 2020, the debt is projected to exceed GDP then rising to 107% in 2023!
