Since this doesn’t stand a chance of becoming law, we won’t bother with the details. But for a moment, just consider how breathtakingly reckless and stupid it is to pass a bill that spends THREE TRILLION DOLLARS just days after introducing it and with scant debate. That is how little they care for the taxpayers – our children and their children – who would pay for it.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats powered a massive $3 trillion coronavirus relief bill through the House on Friday, an election-year measure designed to brace a U.S. economy in free fall and a health care system struggling to contain a pandemic still pummeling the country.
The 208-199 vote, with all but one Republican opposed, advances what boils down to a campaign-season display of Democratic economic and health-care priorities. It has no chance of becoming law as written, but will likely spark difficult negotiations with the White House and Senate Republicans. Any product would probably be the last major COVID-19 response bill before November’s presidential and congressional elections.
