Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is living in an alternate reality. There’s no question about it. He just tweeted out about passing the pork-filled COVID Relief Bill like it’s some great accomplishment. It’s a disaster and should be vetoed by President Trump. The responses on Twitter are brutal to McConnell…99.9% are against the entire mess.
McConnell said, “help is on the way,” but the help went mostly to foreign countries (see below), and the American people got a paltry $600! This is an outrage!
“BREAKING: The Senate just passed another major bipartisan, COVID-19 relief package. The American people can rest assured that more help is on the way, immediately.”

The American people are furious that they get nothing while foreign countries get millions and billions:
-Gee, thanks. Question: can you survive on $1,800 over 9 months? Asking for a friend. Well, 350 million friends, actually.
-Literally, thanks for nothing!
-These other counties will love the new relief package… thanks for giving the American people basically nothing
DETAILS BELOW FROM PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE BILL:
It’s like Deja Vu all over again with the multi-trillion-dollar stimulus bill that Congress just put together. It’s the exact same amount that was in the last Stimulus bill under Obama. Both of these bills are similar in that they have billions in giveaways to redistribute to foreign countries. This has angered Americans looking at the details below, and they cannot believe Americans get a paltry $600. It should be called the ‘Americans Last’ Bill. Nancy Pelosi called the lame $600 check for Americans “significant.”
For the record, President Trump put Americans first with his proposal back in October:
Let the record show that this was President @realDonaldTrump's offer back on October 6th, 2020.
Sir, you should call an emergency press conference to veto this WASTEFUL & INSULTING monstrosity. Repeat your offer. Dare them to override the veto in front of every single American. https://t.co/Cx8Dw0xa2E

According to The Conservative Treehouse, the COVIDE Relief Bill is a 30/70 split with 30% going to Americans and businesses in need. The BIG problem is that 70% goes to “political donors, special interests, environmental lobbyists, K-Street groups who wrote the bill, foreign interests, Wall Street and corporate beneficiaries.”
The bill is $2.5 TRILLION COVID/Omnibus spending bill that totals over 5,600 pages. [LINK TO BILL]
The Stimulus Bill:
The gov’t closes the economy. You lose your job. You face eviction.
$600 for all your troubles.
Meanwhile, they send:
$135 million to Burma
$85.5 million to Cambodia
$1.4 billion for “Asia Reassurance Initiative Act.”
$130 million to Nepal
They hate you.

Can’t forget the 453,000,000 for Ukraine.
This is exactly what’s wrong with DC. Both Parties are NOT putting the American people first!
