In the latest version of the $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill, less than half of those allotted taxpayer dollars seem intended to actually go towards COVID-19 related provisions, which prompts the question: What else has the swamp stuck in the stimulus?

Politicians are making sure they’re not letting coronavirus crisis go to waste by ballooning the cost of the current round of COVID-19 stimulus. Under the bill’s current form, which is 591 pages long, half of the coronavirus stimulus package will go towards government programs and projects that are tangentially related to the COVID-19 pandemic, if at all, according to the Wall Street Journal editorial board. Some of the provisions to fight the virus’ impact on public health and the economy have even been found to serve the long-term detriment of the taxpayer, but the Democrat-controlled government seems set on pushing forward.
