Today’s Action: Do not weaken the stimulus package – strengthen it!

President Biden has begun talks with a group of GOP Senators, who are hoping to reach a “bipartisan” agreement over the stimulus package. The problem is that their package is a third of the size of Biden’s ($618 billion vs $1.9 trillion) and woefully inadequate to address the real needs of the American people.

Thank goodness we’re on the offense now.

To overcome the Jim Crow filibuster, we need 10 Republicans to join Democrats in supporting a larger bill – but since that is unlikely to happen, Democrats have the option of sending the strongest package through budget reconciliation and bypassing the filibuster altogether.

What’s most important now is making our demands for this package crystal clear to both parties…and urging Democrats toward budget reconciliation if Republicans aren’t willing to play ball to save their own constituents’ lives.

Call or email your Members of Congress and tell them not to let Republicans weaken Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus package! We need:

  • Accelerated vaccine distribution in BIPOC communities, who have suffered the most but have received disproportionately low vaccinations
  • State and local funding: Biden’s plan commits $350 billion…that is the minimum!
  • Let everyone see a doctor: emergency health care coverage via a public plan
  • Direct payments: Biden’s plan includes one-time $1,400 checks. That’s a start — we want monthly recurring checks for those who need it most
  • Don’t forget immigrants: include everyone in direct payments and healthcare access
  • $600/week unemployment benefits: Biden’s plan proposes $400/week, which is better than the GOP’s $300/week…but we need higher!
  • Rent and student loan forgiveness…not just pushing crushing debt down the road
  • Small business support, especially in BIPOC communities hit hardest
  • A $15 minimum wage and additional support for essential workers
  • And more…tell them what you need most!

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they think BIG on this stimulus package. Pick the 3-4 items that will impact those hurt hardest in your community and share your personal story!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to demand Facebook ban Trump permanently, and get your copy of the delightful “I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening)” by Pantsuit Politics hosts, Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth A. Silvers, a fun read to help us cope with the aftermath of a post-Trump America.
