UBI would help with eldercare by both helping people pay for it and also supporting unpaid carers. UBI would help people afford housing via both rent and home ownership. UBI would help people afford electric vehicles. UBI could also be paired with increased taxes on corporations. https://t.co/YSbtUuRETP

29 states still do not have laws shielding our LGBTQ+ friends from discrimination. This month, and every month, it’s vital that we afford the same legal protections that the rest of us receive.

We cannot afford a third term of politics as usual. If we keep electing people from the same bureaucracies that have failed us over and over, nothing will change.

2 in 3 people on Medicare don’t have dental coverage. It’s cruel that when seniors need hearing, dental, and vision care most, millions can’t afford it.

Despite record heat and power outages across the city, NYC’s cooling center locator is down. This is particularly harmful for our seniors and low income families who rely upon this free city service to stay cool.
We cannot afford four more years of broken systems.

If Jeff Bezos, the richest man alive worth $ 188 billion, can afford an $ 8.4 billion acquisition of MGM and a $ 500 million 417-foot yacht with a helipad, you know what? He does not need $ 10 billion in corporate welfare to fund his space hobby. Yes. We will end the Bezos bailout. pic.twitter.com/QKdPw7WNxp

The corporate oligarchy has brainwashed this country into thinking we cannot afford a living wage for workers, or a Green New Deal, or expanded unemployment benefits, or guaranteed health care.
They’re wrong. What we cannot afford is inaction.
