Sen. Ted Cruz Is Right: Congress Labeled End-Of-Year Spending Bill "COVID Relief" to Cover the Pork

 
As we’ve covered thoroughly at RedState, Congress passed a pork-filled monstrosity Monday and called it COVID relief, believing that a $600 check would satiate most Americans and keep them from looking deeper into the bill’s contents.
 
In most years that might be true, but during a year in which a good part of the country has been locked down for nine months, in which millions have lost their jobs (and more), and in which the hypocrisy and corruption of our elected “leaders” has been fully revealed, well, good luck with that.
 
It took months for Congress to act on pandemic relief back in the spring, and they tried to attach a bunch of pork then, too. The first bill bought them a few months – months which brought the problems with the bill into full view – but still, House Democrats didn’t seriously push for any type of targeted bill because they knew it would give Donald Trump a PR victory.
 
So now that coronavirus cases are spiking across the country, and especially in very blue states like California and New York, and since draconian shutdown orders are forcing millions of Americans toward the brink of bankruptcy – oh, and because Joe Biden allegedly won the election – Nancy Pelosi and crew are suddenly willing to work on passing some kind of relief bill.
