Trillions after trillions

Recommended Posts

Didn't we just have two trillion dollar bills already this year?

Now the 3rd one coming.

When Bill Clinton requested a 20 Bn stimulus 20 years ago, he probably would have never thunk of the day when politicians easily talk about trillions and trillions.

I don't believe the infrastructure bill had a defense component to it. The main criticism I have heard is only one quarter is being spent on anything resembling infrastructure.  There are hundreds of billions earmarked to improve wages for health care workers, surely a worthy goal but in my mind mislabeled.  The money being spent on R&d is very questionable , in particular when I compare what spaceX has done vs the black hole that is NASA.  The thing that should probably concern us most is the buy America provisions.
