0Ammon Bundy, like his father before him, hates the Fed except when taking money from the Fed.. Surprise, surprise, surprise! Ammon Bundy, a man best known for his eloquence and being white enough to not get in trouble for breaking the law, has an awkward history with the federal government his railed against all afternoon today at a press conference. If you haven’t heard, Bundy, his other brother Bundy, and a bunch of other “patriots”, stormed an empty area and have occupied a Federal building in Oregon, shutting down area schools, and threatening to hunker down for a long time. They’re doing this because the United States federal government is a tyranny! The U.S. is tyrannical! Don’t tread on me! Leave me alone! Give me money! Wait, what? Ammon Bundy runs a Phoenix-based company called Valet Fleet Services LLC, which specializes in repairing and maintaining fleets of semitrucks throughout Arizona. On April 15, 2010—Tax Day, as it happens—Bundy's business borrowed $530,000 through a Small Business Administration loan guarantee program. The available public record does not indicate what the loan was used for or whether it was repaid. The SBA website notes that this loan guarantee was issued under a program "to aid small businesses which are unable to obtain financing in the private credit marketplace." The government estimated that this subsidy could cost taxpayers $22,419. Bundy did not respond to an email request for comment about the SBA loan.
