President Trump Signs The COVID Relief Package
President Trump signed the COVID Relief package over the weekend to avoid a government shutdown, but also with demands. He said on Sunday that he wants the wasteful items in the bill removed and the amount American's receive increased from $600 per person to $2000 for adults and $600 per child. He has sent the bill back to Congress stating that he is enacting the 1974 Impoundment Control Act. Basically, this act allows the President to impound, or hold, the money in the bill that doesn't need to be spent. Will Congress make any changes? Who knows. But, it at least has given the President the platform to showcase what Congress is really wanting to spend money on. Unnecessary programs that have nothing to do with COVID relief.
