The bipartisan $900 billion coronavirus aid bill is just one giant F-you to American taxpayers.
“Family members of unauthorized immigrants are now eligible to get stimulus checks under the $900 billion deal reached last night,” the Wall Street Journal’s Michelle Hackman reported Monday. “That eligibility is retroactive, so adults excluded last time could get up to $1800 now.”

Mixed-status households, where some people are ineligible noncitizens, would get payments based on the number of eligible people in the households, as opposed to being shut out as they were in the first round,” the WSJ reported.

Israel is already slated to get $38 billion from the National Defense Authorization Act.
Sorry. No data so far.
If this is not pure, in your face, naked corruption, I don't know what is.
On what planet is Congress living.
While average Americans struggle, politicians in Congress have just voted to send another $4 billion to wealthy Israel.

Americans are lined up at food banks across the nation but Israel needs another $38 billion to add to their reserves!
Other nations are also receiving millions in foreign aid
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

There’s other piles of garbage included
While rejecting hazard pay for essential workers, refusing to assist desperate local governments and haggling down checks to ordinary Americans to $600, Congress more than doubled the budget for their own private boutique health care clinic. By @lhfang https://t.co/UpHcPY2ava

The PPP bailout money for small business originally covered payroll and rent — the new stimulus legislation now says PPP can cover "cloud computing" services, which potentially means the gov is now picking up the tab for automation. pic.twitter.com/nfvJCfRt6K

The cloud computing bit will no doubt be well received by Amazon, Microsoft and Google, who are the biggest providers of cloud services.
The bill also includes a bunch of giant handouts to Weinstein’s pals in Hollywood

Included in the pandemic relief bill currently circulating is another bill, the "Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act of 2020," which allows Big Media to pull individual citizens into an administrative "court" to be held liable for copyright infringement. pic.twitter.com/HDNl8SuS8z

The bill is some 5,600 pages and it’s pretty much guaranteed our corrupt congress will just shove it right through.
We can expect a vote on a 5,600 page bill this evening. Can anyone read 1,000 pages in an hour? Asking for a few friends on the Hill and the American people.

Our ruling class are traitors.
The interests of the American people no longer factor in to any of their decisions and they’ll hardly even pay us lip service!
[This article has been updated and expanded with additional goodies from the bill. The headline was changed to clarify the checks reportedly going as high as $1,800 will go to households with illegals, who were rightly shut out from the previous stimulus.]
