Congress passed a $2.3 trillion spending package on Tuesday, which included a $900 billion COVID-19 relief bill that presented $600 stimulus checks to Americans. The problem with the stimulus checks is that it maxes out at $600, which is half as much as the previous coronavirus stimulus check from the $2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that was passed in March. The other problem with the $600 checks is that Congress allotted billions of taxpayer money to pet projects, special interests, and foreign governments this week, including $10 million for “gender programs” in Pakistan and the creation of a commission to warn “consumers about the dangers associated with using or storing portable fuel containers for flammable liquids near an open flame.”

The stimulus package, which has more pork than a slaughterhouse in Iowa, was presented in a 5,593-page document on Monday and gave Congressmembers only hours to read the entire document and vote by the midnight government funding deadline.

The package was lampooned by President Donald Trump, who rejected the package and instructed Congress to pay $2,000 for each American, and to increase the amount of financial aid to small businesses, especially restaurants. President Trump wasn’t the only one to ridicule the measly $600 stimulus check, the internet reacted with fire memes.

There were even movie-themed memes, including the timely Christmas Vacation, making a reference to the United States sending $700 million to Sudan.

There were many food-related memes.

There were numerous memes pointing out how Americans were being treated like children.

Some people tore apart the authors of the bill Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), including Representative Thomas Massie of Kentucky, who voted against the exorbitant package.

Some noted that $600 after months of government-imposed lockdowns was way too little and way too late, and was like politicians spitting in their face.

Don’t be this person.

People theorized how the government will screw over Americans in the bill. Please don’t give them any ideas, they’ll actually do it.
