MAKE HEALTH THE TOP PRIORITY, FOR ALL PEOPLE, NO EXCEPTIONS

All people should be able to seek testing and treatment without worrying about getting hit with massive bills. Providers need to get the funding and equipment they'll require to safely take care of sick people. And we all need to be protected from corporate price gouging and profiteering.

PROVIDE ECONOMIC RELIEF DIRECTLY TO THE PEOPLE

The economy is slowing down because of the outbreak. Families will need to have money in their pockets and protection from things like evictions or utility shutoffs during the downturn.

WHAT A TRUE people's bailout CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE LOOKS LIKE

RESCUE WORKERS AND COMMUNITIES, NOT CORPORATE EXECUTIVES

People have to come before corporate profits. Any money that goes to multi-billion dollar corporations has to come with strings attached so that those companies don't turn around and lay off workers while enriching their own executives, like they did in the last financial crisis.

MAKE A DOWN PAYMENT ON A REGENERATIVE ECONOMY, WHILE PREVENTING FUTURE CRISES

While we urgently need a large, short-term stimulus to protect the health and economic security of those on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, it is imperative that policymakers also plan for a large, medium-term stimulus to counteract the economic downturn and ensure a just recovery.

Congress has now passed three 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 likely have to pass at least one additional response package. We need to 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 both the outbreak and the likely recession that will accompany it make both less likely to happen in the future. Take action below to demand a People's Bailout.
