Coronavirus aid: Is there any amount of money that is too much to spend

Byron York, Washington Examiner

There is virtually unanimous, agreement in Congress that the government had to throw vast sums of money at the coronavirus crisis. The number of people left suddenly unemployed is staggering. But after a small assistance bill (about $100 billion), Congress has now passed a $2.2 trillion bill and a $484 billion bill. There's talk of more. Joe Biden says he wants a stimulus "a hell of a lot bigger" than $2 trillion. So the question: Is there any amount of money that is too much to spend? Is it time to tap the brakes? After all, people in Washington used to get the vapors about a $1 trillion deficit. Is double or triple that -- or even worse -- OK?
