More Spending Bill Hell: Waiver for Biden’s Defense Secretary Pick Hidden in the Mix
The DC swamp has passed a “relief package” for themselves to make up for all of the lost prizes and goodies they wanted for themselves and their foreign associates, that they feel they lost under President Donald J.

They tell us they are, in fact, “rescuing us” while giving us back a tiny allowance out of what they took from us.
