Stimulus package

The president is jumping into a legislative debate that ended with the bill's passage yesterday.
The Treasury Department was planning to sit on $679 million in emergency aid that was due to go to tribal governments months ago.
The move will prevent oversight of 4.5 million businesses that took a government Paycheck Protection Program loan. One critic called it "unconscionable, jaw-dropping corruption."
Pensioners, small businesses, sole traders, students and carers are amongst the groups of people who will benefit from the recent stimulus announcements.
