House passes a spending bill to avoid government shutdown during pandemic

The House voted 359-57 on Tuesday evening to approve a temporary government-wide funding bill to keep the government open through December 11. Rep. Justin Amash and 56 Republicans voted against it, while Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez voted present. The final agreement gives the administration continued immediate authority to give out Agriculture Department subsidies in the run-up to Election Day.

Oh! Okay, so they forced shut downs of a ton of different industries and small businesses, forcing millions of people out of a job at no fault of their own, but the legislature passed a bill that guarantees the elected officials that are responsible for this shutdown their full fxn paychecks through December? Is anyone else ready to burn the entire thing to the ground and start over with a tiny bit of government-as it was always meant to be-or is that just me?
