Round 2

A massive spending proposal has passed the House of Representatives.  Intended to provide further financial assistance to individuals and businesses reeling  from COVID-19 restrictions and losses, the bill still has to pass the Senate and there is considerable uncertainty whether that can, will, or should happen.  The price tag is roughly $3 trillion dollars ($3,000,000,000,000,000) on top of our current national debt which is over $25 trillion dollars.  So this package would bump up our national debt by approximately 12%.

The legislation is over 1800 pages in length.  If you have the stomach and time for it, you can read through it here.
