Tell the Senate: Put people before corporate interests!
The United States is on the verge of a depression. Leading economists are telling our leaders that the federal government must provide trillions of dollars in additional stimulus. Without it, we cannot address hardship and get the economy moving again. Together, let’s demand Mitch McConnell and the rest of the Senate address the severity of this crisis. Add your name.
“The House has passed the HEROES Act, which includes a wide range of essential provisions, including aid to our states with funds to prevent cuts to essential services like education, health care and public safety; funding for coronavirus medical treatment and testing; direct aid for struggling families; a boost to SNAP nutrition assistance; increases to housing support; extensions of jobless benefits and paid leave; the ability for people to vote by mail this November; and repeals $250 billion in tax handouts to millionaire business owners. Now, it’s up to the Senate to pass legislation that addresses those same priorities.”
Week after week, the toll of the pandemic grows, damaging the health and economic security of millions. Joblessness is skyrocketing; shocking numbers are running out of food, losing health insurance, and failing to pay rent. These are depression conditions, and Congress’ response must match the severity of the downturn to prevent another Great Depression. Each of these numbers point to solutions Congress must speedily enact.
