        was required by the CARES Act.
            (2) The CARES Act and Paycheck Protection Program and 
        Health Care Enhancement Act were the largest outlay of taxpayer 
        money in the history of the United States.
            (3) The American people demand and deserve responsible 
        stewardship.
