Companies got their PPP loans canceled and stopped student loan relief

Desert Star, which has a listed Grapevine address in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, currently sits at 1.1 stars with 137 reviews and rising as of this writing. Myra Brown, listed as president of the company, also operated High Value Signs & Studio, according to a LinkedIn profile.

High Value Signs & Studio, which is listed as bankrupt on Google, was not affected by the review brigadier, but shares the same listed phone number with a voicemail service.

MySA attempted to reach Brown through the service and was told they were unavailable. This story will be updated if a response is received.

All but $4 of Desert Star’s $48,000 PPP commercial loans have been forgiven. Payday loans were reportedly used for four positions.

Brown was one of two plaintiffs in the case against Biden’s program, the other being Alexander Taylor. Because it did not include a public comment period, the lawsuit alleged that the program violated the Administrative Procedure Act, while asserting that the Secretary of Education had no authority to enact such a program.

The lawsuit was filed by the Job Creators Network Foundation on their behalf in October. While the foundation says it’s nonpartisan, it includes statements such as “American employees, especially nonunion employees, are an untapped reservoir of support for free enterprise,” and touts its Great Opportunity Project, or GOP, while “connecting the dots between conservative policies and prosperity.”

According The interceptionthe JCNF is funded by the conservative Mercer Family Foundation and was founded by the CEO of Home Depot.

Brown private loans not covered by Biden’s student loan forgiveness planwhile Taylor’s loan forgiveness was limited to $10,000 because he had not received a Pell Grant, the Texas Tribune reported. Recipients of the Pell Grants, which are intended for low-income students, are eligible for loan forgiveness of up to $20,000 under the program.

Recent comments range from the mild – “This business is owned by a crook” – to more vitriolic expressions.

One comment read: “Good job taking government PPP loan grants while denying the poor the help they need‘, while another said: ‘I can’t imagine being given $40,000 and then turning around and crying that it’s unfair that others are being offered much less to recoup. Since you think the handouts are so unfair, give back the 40,000.”
