Here's how much of Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill actually combats the virus — and what the rest is for

The Glenn Beck Program

The bill has passed in the Senate, but what's actually in it?

President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill has passed in the Senate, but what's actually in it?

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck highlighted some of the bill's details.

For starters, the amount of spending that directly combats the virus — such as vaccines, vaccine distribution, and other public health measures — is less than 9 percent. Additionally, $350 billion dollars will go to bailing out state and local governments, $270 million to the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts, $200 million to the Institute of Museum and Library Services, $50 million for environmental issues in minority and low-income neighborhoods, and $50 million for family planning, some of which could go to Planned Parenthood, according to Politifact.

While many Americans will receive $1,400 checks, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere argue that the bill will likely do little to cure the economic crisis our nation faces today.
