Of all the money in the COVID-19 relief package, only 9 percent of it actually goes to COVID.
According to Town Hall:
It didn’t take the swamp long to come back in full force after former President Trump left office, and there’s no better example of that than the COVID-19 relief bill, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said.
Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity, McCarthy said that “only 9 percent of it goes to COVID.”
“What they are doing is telling you the swamp is back. Everything you have warned your viewers about before the election is coming true in this bill,” he said.
“I’m going to point out something that is either so obvious it is idiotic or so obvious it is brilliant,” Gutfeld said on “The Five.” “The stimulus is a device for the government to give itself more money, think about it, we are watching an entity writing a check to itself, sure, we are getting some money out of it, which was oh, by the way, our money to begin with, but this is now a political version of money laundering.”
The Wall Street Journal pointed out that the bill is not COVID relief but a boon for progressive policies.
