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

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.

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.
