Huh. I wonder if they teach THIS in 6th-grade civics. Along with systems to track what got folded into the consolidated bill.

Alexandra Erin the Meadow We Can Build a Snowman (@AlexandraErin) Tweeted: If you’re lost as to why the stimulus bill has a passage dealing with this, that, or the other thing, or why it’s thousands of pages long if it was just written at the last minute: it’s not a stimulus bill. It’s an a must-pass spending bill the stimulus was folded into.

Alexandra Erin the Meadow We Can Build a Snowman (@AlexandraErin) Tweeted: I just saw somebody asking how they call it a “consolidated” bill when it’s so long and this is the answer: it’s long *because* it’s consolidated. They consolidated a bunch of funding and other priorities into one giant bill.
