And THAT is why the President needs line item veto power.
The ability to "just say no" to these wastes of money and only pay for what we put him in office to do.
If the President line item veto's a critically needed item, the house and senate can over ride him with a super majority vote.
So if it is a really critical item, we would still get it approved as long as it is really critical and necessary to the majority of people.
the republicans screwed up...all they had to do was add on line buried somewhere within the 1000 pages.....everything not directly pertaining to the corona virus pandemic is null and void.
The dems would never have found it.
