Here’s a radical idea: majority rule. Not a single Republican voted to provide a $ 1,400 direct payment to the working class or a $ 3,000 Child Tax Credit. The Senate passed this important legislation with 51 votes. We must do the same with the American Jobs and Family plans.

Please urge your rep to join these 28 in calling for recurring monthly recovery checks. We aren’t through this disaster yet and one $ 1400 check was never going to get us all through to the other side in one piece.
Bills are monthly. Checks should be too.

“47% of respondents said the $ 1,400 stimulus check amount should have been more, 15% said less, and 38% said just right.”
One more check was never going to be enough. We have bills each and every month. Stimulus checks should be monthly until our economy has fully recovered. https://t.co/jQll2DzeXc

Oh boo-hoo: “I can’t find waiters to work for $ 2.13/hr because they might get more on UI”
Oh boo-hoo: “I can’t find people to work part-time for $ 8/hr because they got a $ 1,400 stimulus check”
Cry me a river. Start paying your workers enough to live or close your damn business.

Another $ 1400 stimulus check would bring 7.2 million more Americans out of poverty. If two more stimulus checks were approved, more than 12 million more Americans would be lifted from poverty. Why stop lowering poverty? Let’s just make the checks monthly!https://t.co/6OMK9c94eY
