On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck highlighted some of the bill’s details.
For starters, the amount of spending that directly combats the virus — such as vaccines, vaccine distribution, and other public health measures — is less than 9 percent. Additionally, $350 billion dollars will go to bailing out state and local governments, $270 million to the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts, $200 million to the Institute of Museum and Library Services, $50 million for environmental issues in minority and low-income neighborhoods, and $50 million for family planning, some of which could go to Planned Parenthood, according to Politifact.
While many Americans will receive $1,400 checks, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere argue that the bill will likely do little to cure the economic crisis our nation faces today.
