Today’s Action: Progressive. Pandemic. Relief. NOW.

The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) – btw, are your Members of Congress part of it? make THAT phone call! – has come out in full force to push the impending pandemic relief bill as far as it can go for working families. They (and we along with them) are demanding the bill includes a direct cash payment of $2000 and improved unemployment insurance for six months, or they’ll block the vote.

This is the kind of strong progressive action we’ve been begging Democrats to take during four years of Trump, and what we’ll continue to ask for under the Biden/Harris administration. Add your voice to support the progressives willing to take a stand for what Americans really need right now.

Call or email your Members of Congress and demand 1. direct cash payments to families, 2. extended unemployment insurance, 3. boosted state/local aid, and 4. NO corporate liability protections in the upcoming pandemic relief bill. And if your Democratic reps aren’t members of the CPC, ask them to join!

So, why advocate for direct cash payments and improved unemployment? Two reasons:

    1. They work for those in need. During our last round of cash payments, 29 cents on the dollar were spent during the first 10 days of receipt, and on basic necessities like food, rent and bills. Families desperately need the extra boost.
    2. They work for the economy. Within CARES Act unemployment payments this year, 73 cents on the dollar paid out were put straight back into the economy. That is a huge rate of turnaround to boost local industries!


The vote on pandemic relief could happen today or tomorrow – make the call this morning to support the CPC’s demands!

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and tell them you support Congressional progressives. Insist on direct cash payments, boosted unemployment and state/local aid in the pandemic relief bill…and tell them to reject Mitch McConnell’s corporate liability protections.
