Now you will find out why Republicans are blocking this 2 trillion dollar congressional bill!

Hard to believe but look it up on the Congressional website for HR 748 from 116th Congress.

American population: 330,483,530

Stimulus bill: $2,000,000,000,000 ($2 Trillion)

Dividing the cost by every in America is $6,051.74

The government could have given every person over $6,000, but instead will give $1,200 to each adult under a certain income.

Wanna know where the missing 96% of your tax dollars went?

As you read through this REMEMBER, its supposedly a Bill to help us get through the Virus

Here you go. . .

$300,000,000 ($300m) for Migrant and Refugee Assistance pg 147

$10,000 per person for their student loan bailout

$100,000,000 to Nasa, because, who knows why.

$20,000,000 to the USPS, because why the hell not

$300,000,000 ($300m) to the Endowment for the Arts - how is the Virus affecting them

$300,000,000 ($300m) for the Endowment for the Humanities/ because no one even
knew that was a thing exactly what do they do ??

$15,000,000 for Veterans Employment Training / for when the GI Bill isn't enough

$435,000,000 for mental health support

$30,000,000,000 for the Department of Education stabilization fund/ because that will keep people employed (all those zeros can be confusing, thats $30 BILLION) is the DOE going to distribute those funds across all schools in the US. ?? or is ti just to keep the Federal program afloat and over-bloated with employees

$200,000,000 to Safe Schools Emergency Response to Violence Program

$300,000,000 to Public Broadcasting / NPR seriously? $300M to public radio? I guess they are a vital part of the fight against the Virus ???

$500,000,000 to Museums and Libraries / ($500M) to the museums and libraries that have been CLOSED
Who the hell knows how we are going to use it

$720,000,000 to Social Security Admin / but get this only 200,000,000 is to help people. The rest is for admin costs

$25,000,000 for Cleaning supplies for the Capitol Building / I kid you not it's on page 136

$7,500,000 to the Smithsonian for additional salaries

$35,000,000 to the JFK Center for Performing Arts - also closed during the pandemic so why do they get $35M?

$25,000,000 for additional salary for House of Representatives - because they work so hard for us !

$3,000,000,000 upgrade to the IT department at the VA again, upgrading the VA systems may be needed but $3B for IT systems?

$315,000,000 for State Department Diplomatic Programs are these the guys that will hold China responsible?

$95,000,000 for the Agency of International Development or maybe its these guys ?

$300,000,000 for International Disaster Assistance - the Virus isnt causing any hurricanes or tornadoes is it?

$90,000,000 for the Peace Corp pg 148 - why

$13,000,000 to Howard University pg 121 why does 1 black college in all of the US get any money?

$ 9,000,000! Misc. Senate Expenses pg 134 -

$100,000,000 to Essential Air carriers pg 162. This of note because the Airlines are going to need billions in loans to keep them afloat. $100M is chump change

$40,000,000,000 ($40B) goes to the Take Responsibility to Workers and Families Act This sounds like it's direct payments for workers, but what workers ?? Pg 164

$1,000,000,000 Airlines Recycle and Save Program pg 163 $1B for recycling program ?

$25,000,000 to the FAA for administrative costs pg 165

$492,000,000 to National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak) pg 167 ($492m) are we using rail cars as ERs now?

$526,000,000 Grants to Amtrak to remain available if needed through 2021 pg 168 (what are the odds that doesn't go unused) ($526m) additional, just in case funding Hidden on page 174 the Secretary has 7 days to allocate the funds & notify Congress. Whos going to keep track of this money?

$25,000,000,000 for Transit Infrastructure pg 169

$3,000,000 Maritime Administration pg 172

$5,000,000 Salaries and Expensive Office of the Inspector General pg 172

$2,500,000 Public and Indian Housing pg 175 this should be one of the high numbers

$5,000,000 Community Planning and Development pg 175 Community planners get $5m and what have they accomplished in the last decade ??

$2,500,000 Office of Housing ??? whose housing?

What DOES ALL of this have to do with the Virus?

Are you angry yet?
