Bailout of Cruise Lines?


Obviously, cruise lines are being crushed by the pandemic. Someone on the interwebs noted that many companies base in tax-friendly countries in order to avoid paying U.S. taxes. Would the U.S. consider giving taxpayer money to such companies? In principle that sounds like a bad idea but maybe there are so many jobs in the U.S. dependent on those companies is makes pragmatic sense? Especially since bailouts would have to be paid back.
