It went to the already obscenely rich, then who knows where. But not into the economy.
We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…
Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.

OTOH, this means the 1% won’t get any new legislation for a couple of weeks.
They are called 'human' rights not "if politicians do not feel threatened" rights. Many politicians see national sovereignty/security as more important because they protect their power and wealth. Human rights often do just the opposite.
National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not resolved with more national sovereignty.

start to give WE THE PEOPLE lip service AFTER they have flopped all over themselves to subserviantly bow before their corporate masters? They’ve done EVERYTHING the PIGLYCONS WANTED! AND NOW! NOW they’ll throw us the scrap of pretending to fight for us.
If they made any LESS effort to solve our very real, insanely important problems, they would simply stop breathing!
