Today’s Action: Big push for a stimulus package!

We will hopefully see a vaccine arriving for broad distribution by April 2021, which is still five months and a long winter season away. Meanwhile, we are quickly approaching 250,000 American fatalities. States across the country have begun shutting down in the face of escalating cases, including those who have disdained restrictions until now, and hospital beds in the Midwest are filling up or already at capacity.

But while Democrats know pandemic support must be broad and far reaching to assist struggling communities, Mitch McConnell is still insisting on a narrow package that doesn’t even scratch the surface of what this country needs. But he has released a must-pass spending bill proposal, which includes more funding for the border wall and detention center beds…

Call or email your Senators and demand comprehensive pandemic relief in the upcoming spending bill. We need: stimulus checks for families, extra unemployment benefits, eviction protections and rent relief, student loan relief, funding for vaccine distribution, and more.

Most of the remaining (albeit mediocre) protections we still have are set to expire December 31st. For millions of families who are barely scraping by, this crisis is about to look even worse unless Senate Republicans acknowledge how dire the situation is.

The Senate must face up to the hard truth that a lot more Americans are about to die or find themselves homeless as winter sets in, and the losses and pain are on Republican shoulders. We need real relief in the upcoming spending bill.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand robust pandemic funding in the upcoming spending bill. Be specific – share what you personally need or read from the list above.
