The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget wrote in an analysis Monday that the Democrats’ coronavirus bill contains at least $312 billion in policies unrelated to the coronavirus.
The Committee released an analysis of the House coronavirus bill, stating that it:
…is much larger than the needs of the economy, much of its spending is poorly targeted, it includes a number of measures unrelated to the COVID pandemic and economic crisis, and it would abruptly cut off aid to unemployed workers at the end of August.

The dollars obviously denote this bill is about everything but covid or stimulus for the people.
I didn’t see it in this story, but one of the these covid bills has something that goes after cigarette shipments. Including vaping items.
If anyone knows someone who vapes, might want to tell them to stock up.
They’re desperate to get people back into smoking so they can get their precious revenue.
have the parker bros print up some moar monopoly money. mo money
My state, Illinois, previously requested $10B to “stabilize” its corrupt retirement system. It was rejected. Maybe this time they will get it. Then Illinois can kick the can down the road. Pensions eat about 25% of the state budget. Normal states use about 5% for retirement payments.
Ma good chunk of the money will go to foreign NGO’s and financial orgs, then get funneled (laundered) back Democrat and UNIPARTY pets.
And there’s a trillion from the last bill that is still UNSPENT.
Cuomo is getting a $50 billion bailout....nothing to do with Covid...just to help out with his NY give away policies.
Pretty soon we’ll be talking about some real money...
Hard working taxpayer’s money is not spent wisely. Our children and their children will inherit a different country.
Maybe we can get our rough, tough GOP Senators to do something about that.
