Recently, Congress passed an historic $2 Trillion stimulus bill in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Before it passed, Democrats had to fight tooth and nail to make sure that most of the money went to the people, small businesses, and healthcare workers, and small businesses–and to make sure that the money that did go to large corporations had stringent oversight requirements.
