I have two questions relating to the sentence I wrote in bold.
In 1990, the federal government eliminated its share of contributions to the UI program. And since then, UI has been entirely funded by contributions from workers and employers.
Question 1: This link and this too, says that adverbs such as completely/entirely should be placed between the auxiliary verb and the main verb. So I placed "entirely" in between has been and funded. But when I googled "has been entirely funded" it returned 6,200 results, compared to 23,000 for "has been funded entirely". What is the correct position for "entirely"?
Question 2: For some reason, I am having difficulty parsing "And since then, UI has been entirely funded". I feel the use of "since then" and "has been" with "funded" is not grammatical. What is the correct tense for this?
