The U.S. Senate has passed what they call the CARES Act, and it comes with a nearly $2 trillion price tag:
A) The Senate has approved the sixth major coronavirus relief package.
The vote was 50-49
It was a party line vote.
Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK) was absent due to the death of his father-in-law.

The bill will now go back to the House for reconciliation, where no doubt some Reps will try to stir a little more pork into the mix.
