$1.9 trillion in tax cuts for the rich: “good for the economy”— Dan Price (@DanPriceSeattle) December 22, 2020
$750 billion a year for defense: “for people’s safety”
$3 trillion to prop up the stock market: “can’t let companies go bankrupt”
People struggling through brutal economy, death and bankruptcy: “here’s $600”
This is a big part of why people are so frustrated, alienated and angry.— Heraclitean Fire (@heraclitean11) December 22, 2020

Tulsi Gabbard: This bill was supposed to provide direct COVID relief to the American people. Instead, it gave hundreds of billions to corporate interests, the military-industrial-complex & foreign countries, while leaving struggling Americans with crumbs. pic.twitter.com/HpVZNKWq66— Sarah Abdallah (@sahouraxo) December 22, 2020

The coffers are bare. We have no rainy day fund. We have no savings account. Congress has spent all of the money. Congress spent all of the money a long time ago.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) December 21, 2020
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.— Leader McConnell (@senatemajldr) December 22, 2020
I know a lot of you guys are upset that you're only getting $600 but doesn't it make you feel a little bit better knowing that Israel is getting $3.3 Billion?— Dave Smith (@ComicDaveSmith) December 22, 2020
Stimulus package passed fuck yea pic.twitter.com/Xd2MqA04Hh— david drake (@somanyshrimp) December 21, 2020
We can expect more of this with the “deficit hawks” in charge of the Senate. Massive tax cuts for the wealthy, investors and corporations. Hundreds of billions of dollars spent on Israel and the military. Nothing for people who actually needed help during the pandemic.
