BREAKING: Senate Rams Through Massive $1.9 Trillion COVID Relief Bill

The U.S. Senate has passed the massive $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill. The final vote tally was 50-49.

“In a 50-49 vote, the Senate passed a massive Covid relief bill that includes weekly $300 unemployment checks, $1,400 stimulus checks and no change to the federal minimum wage,” CBS reported.

Louisiana Senator John Kennedy recently blasted the bill as an “orgy of pork.”

“The only way I know how to improve it is with a shredder,” Kennedy said in an interview with Fox News. “It’s not even a coronavirus bill. Calling this a coronavirus bill is like calling Harvey Weinstein a feminist. It’s chock-full of spending porn.”

Sen. Ron Johnson had attempted to slow the bill down by making the Senate clerk read the entire 500-plus-page bill, which took over 10 hours.

The COVID relief bill just passed by the Senate will cost Americans over $3 billion per page.
