“Are there any countries that tax their citizens and send some of it to Americans?”

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 originally planned for only $600 of relief to Americans, who had been suffering all year from the 2020 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. However, the bill provided for billions of dollars to foreign countries.

“Just sitting here thinking....how many other countries tax their citizens, and then send the money to the US of A? Did I miss something?” was posted on Twitter by Trent Brooks on December 28, 2020. “Are there any Countries that tax their citizens and send some of it to Americans.?” was posted on Twitter by Rooster on December 28, 2020. “Are there any countries that tax their citizens and send some of it to Americans?” was posted on Twitter by Richard Grenell later on December 28, 2020.

“ARE THERE ANY COUNTRIES THAT TAX THEIR CITIZENS AND SEND SOME OF IT TO AMERICANS?” (shown on a meme) was posted on Twitter by Sal the Agorist on January 2, 2021.

“Don’t forget to pay your taxes this year. Other countries are depending on you” is a related saying.


Wikipedia: Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021
The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (H.R. 133) is a $2.3 trillion spending bill that combines $900 billion in stimulus relief for the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States with a $1.4 trillion omnibus spending bill for the 2021 federal fiscal year (combining 12 separate annual appropriations bills) and prevents a government shutdown. The bill is one of the largest spending measures ever enacted, surpassing the $2.2 trillion CARES Act, enacted in March 2020. The legislation is the first bill to address the pandemic since April 2020. According to the Senate Historical Office, at 5,593 pages, the legislation is the longest bill ever passed by Congress.
