Congress is about to pass a $2 trillion spending package to address the coronavirus pandemic and its economic fallout.
Where the money goes will depend on whether we speak up now.
CALL CONGRESS AT (202) 224-3121: Tell your U.S. Senators and Representative to work for a Bernie-style plan that follows the 5 Principles for Just COVID-19 Relief and Stimulus:
(1) Health is the top priority, for all people, with no exceptions
(2) Provide economic relief directly to the people
(3) Rescue workers and communities, not corporate executives
(4) Make a down payment on a regenerative economy, while preventing future crises
(5) Protect our democratic process while protecting each other
No one doubts the necessity of spending trillions of dollars to address this crisis.
On Sunday, Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard warned the U.S. could face a 30% unemployment rate and an unprecedented 50% drop in gross domestic product.
But, there is a huge disagreement about where the money should go.
Trump wants a $500 billion slush fund to bail out his favorite corporations—including his own—that would be doled out in secret.
We can’t let Trump get away with stealing from the poor and giving to the rich—especially in this time of need! Our health, our welfare, our communities, our economy and our democracy are worth fighting for! Bernie Sanders has the best plan to address the coronavirus crisis and prepare us for whatever happens next.
