We have a deal on third coronavirus relief package—it prioritizes health care, workers, families, & small businesses. We have to realize that any choice between our lives and our livelihoods is a false choice, which is why this package supports both health care + the economy.
As details are finalized on the third coronavirus relief package, I'll be pushing out specifics online. This bill (while not perfect) includes a great number of provisions for workers, families, small businesses, nonprofits, and our health care system.
BREAKING NEWS: This is a key moment in our battle against virus/economic implosion. Senate just passed corona 3 aid package: $2 trillion to stabilize families, workers, businesses, housing, education, agriculture + health care. Here’s the 880 pg bill text:
This package is not perfect. But it DOES get much needed aid to the people who need it most. After House approval and Oval Office signature, next step is for the Trump Admin to implement it quickly and effectively. There’s no time to waste.
PLEASE RT: I’m getting a lot of questions from folks about direct payments: ❓Who is eligible? ❓How do I get it? ❓How much will I get? ❓Will I be taxed on it? I’ve compiled this information and more into a FAQ page:
Looking for details on how this week’s emergency aid package can help small businesses and 501(c)(3) nonprofits? I’ll have more information to share in the coming weeks, but here’s a quick overview of what we know so far:
I was barred entry. Asked repeatedly to speak to a supervisor—he finally came out and said he can’t tell us anything. Police were called on us. Children should never be ripped from their families & held in secretive detention centers. RT if you agree this is WRONG.
I asked the senior senator from Texas to come to the floor and explain his Wall Street Welfare amendment that lets giant hedge funds be taxed like small businesses. Still waiting. RT if you want him to come to the floor.
I just left the tent city at Tornillo. It is a child prison camp. They refused our request to speak with the children who are held there.
These are tweets that the new Admin has already deleted. RT if you believe in science and oppose Trump's gag order on climate facts!
I have 4 televisions on right now and not a single one of them is showing this footage from earlier today. Every station should be covering this Trump-created crisis and the mistreatment of children in our care. We are better than this.
Team Trump has proposed a new reg to allow family internment camps in America. Yes… internment camps! Is this what we've to come to? It was evil in WWII. And it is evil now. One day when your children ask you about what happened, what will you tell them? We are better than this.
