ENSURE THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM CAN MEET THE SCOPE OF THIS CRISIS

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.

SUPPORT FAMILIES

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-first CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE LOOKS LIKE

SUPPORT WORKERS AND 
SMALL BUSINESSES

This is going to be a hard time for many small businesses and the people they employ. We need to support workers with universal paid sick leave and expanded unemployment insurance, and make sure small businesses can rebound once the crisis is over.

PREVENT UNACCOUNTABLE CORPORATE BAILOUTS

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.

ENSURE POLICIES SUPPORT MARGINALIZED COMMUNITIES

The outbreak affects everyone, regardless of race, immigration status, disability, or any other identity. The response to this disease must be comprehensive, and ensure that all people get the protections for their health and economic security that they need.

As of the morning of March 25, Republicans and Democrats in the Senate have reached a tentative agreement on a third COVID-19 response package. The final package is a dramatic improvement from the original Republican bill, which was essentially a giant no-strings-attached corporate giveaway without any real support to workers and families affected by this crisis.

Senate Democrats deserve a lot of credit for sticking together to make improvements to the bill, such as dramatically expanding unemployment insurance, and providing money to support our already-strained health care system. However, the bill still falls short of what people need in this moment of crisis, and the House should fight to improve it. Your representative needs to hear from you so that they work to improve the third coronavirus response bill before voting on it.
