Maybe because there is a huge gap between the $1.9 trillion total and the $350 billion directly paid to individuals? Maybe we need to cut off Washington’s addiction to debt? Maybe the bill went way past the parameters of Covid-19 relief? Maybe it is all our representative’s duty to ensure that we are represented? Some of us believe in fiscal responsibility, whether it is our children’s birthday party or our national debt. Why continue to cut-n-paste this one-sided, emotional propaganda without any consideration for the facts?
For example, to name a few details off the top of my head:
American Rescue Plan $1.9 Trillion
Direct Payments to Individuals $300 Billion
Difference $1.6 Trillion
Oh! Here’s a portion of it:
State and Local Gov’t Bailouts $350 Billion
Obamacare Expansion $ 45 Billion
Amtrak $ 2 Billion
15 weeks Leave for Federal employees $570 Million
National Endow for Arts/Humanities $470 Million
PBS $175 Million
Were you aware of this, and do you agree with this type of spending for “Covid-19 Relief”?
