Money allocation is slow from government to businesses. I work for a health center and my CEO informed me she received a call from feds asking if we suffered any loses from Hurricane Sandy so we can be reimbursed........

A lot of the time, the people voting on it don't.

They definitely don't read the bills...cliff notes from a staffer at best I'd say!  Figure I'll use mine for new trolling reels...anyone that needs the money it's not enough to last long I wouldn't think.  I'll put it right back in the economy...last time I bought a Winchester model 70!  Still smile every time I use it!

Page 134, $25,000,000 for salaries and expenses for Congressional members......you get $1200 (maybe), they get $46,000 +.

Hard not to believe that in 1400 pages there isn't a few things that aren't geared towards the avg person...I wouldn't want to be the person who forced Congress to return to Washington...once you are on Trumps bad side it doesn't end well!!

This bill is stuffed with pork but is an example of the bloat in the federal government by both parties over the years.   Change will never come because it is difficult to remove an incumbent because the cost for someone to run is in the millions.  Incumbents continually are campaigning.  In this bill is like $50 million for the Kennedy Center(they honor four or five artists each year among other things) some built in extra dollars for congressional costs.  They wanted to tag the Green New Deal stuff with it, fortunately not much got in it.

 

Many Americans don't vote at all, or cannot name their representatives from President on down.  Don't believe me, ask some of your friends to recite the names or your kids and see what you get.  

 

It is sad and the sadder part is that there should be an incentive for buying things later this year, companies buying equipment, trucks etc to get the economy moving and I doubt that will happen.  Took us years to recover from the Great Depression in 1929, the recession of 1982(interest rates at 20%)  or the Great Recession of 2008.  This is not like a TV episode that gets wrapped up in 60 minutes.  

 

3.3 million jobs lost last week alone!

In my opinion,bills like this are 1400 pages cause no one reads every page and somewhere between page 856 and 1139 is the page that has two or three lines where special perks are given to a select few.

It is just absolutely disgusting that they put a pay raise in for themselves $25 million(democrats).  All of them need to be voted out of office the next time they run! They have done nothing for the taxpayer for the last three years.  What a bunch of blood sucking leeches!

Imagine if you and your coworkers could set your own pay raises...I'd bet you would see the same...does anyone really think that $25000000 is the worst part of the bill?  Its  .001% of the total expense...yes it's absolutely criminal in these times, but I think there are much bigger problems with other portions of the pork that we will be paying for...everybody seems to want a hand out that in the grand scheme of things isn't gonna help.

I differ take into account the loss in Mutual and Stocks. Some of us have to draw on them to supplement income. So yes a $1200 or whatever the incentive plan eventually does matter and is critical to many.
