Rev. Sirico: The dangers of accepting government money, even in a crisis

Rev. Robert Sirico, president and co-founder of the Acton Institute, reflects on the ways government programs and government money can be corrupting, even when those programs may seem necessary during a crisis. Rev. Sirico shares why the Acton Institute will not be applying for the Paycheck Protection Program and how other businesses and non-profits should weigh the benefits and risks of government relief programs like this.
