As per the Nancy Pelosi Modus Operandi for gigantic bills being passed in the House of Representatives, the 2020 “COVID RELIEF STIMULUS” or whatever it’s real name is, was passed in a quick hurry right before the Christmas holiday. Given the track record involved, it is assumed by many that it had to be passed before the people voting on the darn thing could actually read what was in it.
The bill itself is over 5,500 pages long, and as the monstrosity was being shepherded through the Capitol building at breakneck speed, We the People out on the fruited plain actually read what we are/were being saddled with this time.
It did not take long for the inhabitants of Twitter and other social media platforms to pick out some of the pork stuffed into this fatty sausage of a “stimulus” bill that supposedly is meant to help the American people get back on their feet financially after a year of lockdowns which has forced roughly a third of small business to close permanently.
And just exactly what was in that bill?
Swamp sticks climate language and cash in COVID relief bill.
Bill will pointlessly raise the price of air conditioning and shovel $35 billion in taxpayer subsidies at wind/solar fraudsters.

The lists above the American people total to over $6 Billion of the $2.3 Trillion dollar package, where We the People who are footing the bill get $600 a person which may or may not cover the past due credit card balance racked up because Americans had to find a way to eat. And that’s just a portion of the bombshells.
In addition, HB1 visas will be extended.
And then this list from Ryan Fournier via Twitter:
- Funds to investigate the “1908 Springfield Race Riots”
- Regulation of performance-enhancing drugs in racehorses
- Funds to address gender inequality among statues.
- $193M for HIV/AIDS Federal Workers stationed abroad to buy new cars.
One thing Nancy Pelosi and her mob didn’t count on with this particular Porkulus offering: thanks to those draconian restrictions and lockdowns, the American people have plenty of time to explore what is in this bill.
92-6 final Senate vote post clerk clarification.
The 6 no votes:
That’s your list of patriots y’all; in it’s entirety.
