The Day Of The Longest Bill

WE have a new bill for stim to relieve the problems that the pandemic have caused…..and believe it or not this bill has 5,593 pages….money for the Air Force and Navy….money for the government to prevent a shutdown just before Christmas break…..oh yeah crumbs for us peons.

Congress passed a $900 billion pandemic relief package that would finally deliver long-sought cash to businesses and individuals and resources to vaccinate a nation confronting a frightening surge in COVID-19 cases and deaths. Lawmakers tacked on a $1.4 trillion catchall spending bill and thousands of pages of other end-of-session business in a massive bundle of bipartisan legislation as Capitol Hill prepared to close the books on the year. The bill approved Monday night went to President Trump for his signature, which was expected in the coming days, the AP reports. The relief package, unveiled Monday afternoon, sped through the House and Senate in a matter of hours. The Senate cleared the massive package by a 92-6 vote after the House approved the COVID-19 package by another lopsided vote, 359-53.

The bill combines coronavirus-fighting funds with financial relief for individuals and businesses. It would establish a temporary $300 per week supplemental jobless benefit and a $600 direct stimulus payment to most Americans, along with a new round of subsidies for hard-hit businesses, restaurants, and theaters and money for schools, health care providers and renters facing eviction. The 5,593-page legislation—by far the longest bill ever—came together Sunday after months of battling, posturing and postelection negotiating that reined in a number of Democratic demands as the end of the congressional session approached. Congress also approved a one-week stopgap spending bill to avert a partial government shutdown at midnight and give Trump time to sign the sweeping legislation.

In case you do not have the time to read the Russian novel that is the Covid relief bill let me break it down for you…..

the new COVID relief bill includes: – $4’000’000’000 for navy weapons – $2’000’000’000 for air force missiles – $500’000’000 for israel – tax breaks if you own a race horse – $600 for you

Glad to see that Israel gets their pound of American flesh……and that the war machine will not suffer….god forbid that the cash be spent where it is needed….on the American people.

Be Smart!

  1. Whay are they giving so much money to Israel in the midst of a serious health crisis in America?
    Oh, don’t answer that, I remember the answer…
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Be glad that you get this so great in the USA. Today I had heard that you have a minimum annual income of 75,000 dollars. This is what you can dream of in Germany. In addition, you can quickly send a cheque to every person in need without a registration register. Small businesses have not received any money from us since November. This should now last until March 2021, because the software is not fully programmed. 😉 Dont worry! Michael

      1. I am hearing about, Chuq! Itsnt he a crazy one? Lol Here they are airing like he would work against the people, but he only will make em a wonderful Christmas gift. In the UN Security Council German got slapped by Russia an China too. 😉 Sorry, but sometimes our German officials are forgetting their own past, and the past of this country too. We are not, and we never would go back to world ruling thoughts. Merry Christmas to you too, Chuq! Enjoy some days of silence. The trouble will be back soon enough.
