COVID-19 relief bill was packed full of pork

| April 6, 2021 1:00 AM

I’m muddling through the $1.9 trillion "Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021," as Congress calls the current COVID-19 relief bill. This 3,600-page monstrosity is full, and I mean full, of pork that goes to everything but COVID relief. The vermin we elect/reelect are dumping most of this $1.9T into the pork swamp.

Can’t wrap your brain around 1.9 trillion? Well, 60,248 years contains 1.9 trillion seconds. Hard to believe, no? $1.9 trillion is real money, huh?

God bless America, and God bless our military.
