Demand A People’s Bailout That Puts People Over Profits In Response To The COVID-19 Crisis!
Issue: From Indivisible National:
•Congress has passed four coronavirus-related response bills. While these bills have temporarily filled in important gaps in our paid sick leave, unemployment insurance, and health care systems, they are grossly insufficient given the magnitude of the current crisis.
•What’s worse, in return for helping people who are desperately in need of support, Trump and his Republican allies demanded hundreds of billions of dollars in unaccountable corporate bailouts.
•This crisis isn’t over and soon Congress will have to pass at least one additional response package.
•We must continue demanding that any coronavirus response legislation puts people’s needs ahead of corporate profits — in other words, we need a People’s Bailout.
•Congress must fix the gaps in the previous bills, and make sure that the response to the outbreak and the recession that will accompany it make it less likely for both to happen in the future.
•Indivisible National has laid out a five-point plan, with scripts that you can use to demand that your Members of Congress make sure any future legislation:
- Protects Democratic processes while protecting each other.
- Makes health the top priority for all people, no exceptions.
- Provides economic relief directly to the people.
- Rescues workers and communities, not corporate executives.
- Makes a down payment on a regenerative economy, while preventing future crises.
