Today’s Action: Tell the House to pass the HEROES Act

The House is expected to vote TODAY on the HEROES Act, an 1800-page piece of legislation that would put a whopping $3 trillion into personal financial support, voting protections, free testing and treatment for all, and economic stimulation.

The Democrats’ plan would provide $1 trillion in funding for state and local governments, a second stimulus check for households (including immigrants), funding for the United States Postal Service, moratoriums on evictions, and $200 billion in hazard pay for essential workers. It also includes $3.6 billion to fund a national option to vote-by-mail and boosted in-person safety measures for this November’s election.

We need Democrats to stand firm and pass the bill as-is, and fight off attacks from Republicans to water down these much-needed efforts.

The vote is expected TODAY! Call or email your Representative and tell them to pass the HEROES Act as-is and reject all Republican amendments and motions to recommit. 

This is not a perfect act. For example, we’re still fighting for expansions in Medicare (and Medicare-for-All) vs a dependence on employer-based COBRA insurance, and it falls short in what we’ve asked in student loan forgiveness. And, a one-time stimulus payment is not as supportive as monthly ongoing payments through the crisis.

HOWEVER: it includes so much of what we’ve been asking for and it’s vitally important that it passes tomorrow without being watered down by Republicans more intent on helping corporate buddies and Trump’s reelection efforts than supporting their own voters. This bill must be as strong as possible going into negotiations with the Republican-led Senate.

Tell your Representative to pass the HEROES Act as-is because our Americans — and America — need these actions to survive this crisis. Do it today!
