33. Uh, no

Everything in that bill is decidedly NOT good.

Only 550 billion, less than half, is new spending, making the 1.2 trillion claim a bit of a stretch.

There are oil and gas tax breaks, public private partnerships (aka corporate giveaways of public infrastructure), etc., and no new revenue from tax changes to the rich or corporations to pay for it.

I get the pom pom waving, but let's not oversell a heavily compromised bit of legislation.
