It’s important for Republicans to recognize that the states that should see the biggest economic growth bumps as a result of the monthly CTC are: Mississippi, Arkansas, Idaho, Montana, Kentucky, Oklahoma, West Virginia, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Alabama.https://t.co/EDBq6ZavEu pic.twitter.com/IOeWt425Kh

The CDC’s eviction moratorium expires today. More than 10 million tenants report being behind on their rent, and emergency rental assistance has barely gotten off the ground.
Yet again, we’re barreling towards an economic and public health disaster that was entirely preventable.

We have an economic imperative and moral obligation to stop creating poverty through our laws that impose poverty. We have enough basics for everyone. We just don’t allow people to have what they need unless…
The “unless” part is morally reprehensible.https://t.co/gXmTmrV0wZ

America is on the move again, and today’s new GDP numbers put our economy back at pre-pandemic levels.
Make no mistake: this growth is no accident, it’s a direct result of our efforts to deliver economic relief to families, small businesses, and communities across the country.

We could replace the $ 300/week UI boost with a combo of $ 150/week UI boost plus $ 600 monthly stimulus checks that both switch off automatically when certain economic conditions are reached.

Too often, economic growth means jobs, wages, and innovation in only a few specific parts of our country.
We aren’t going to leave the rest of America behind. My Endless Frontier Act would make sure innovation fuels growth in rural America, too.

Maybe there’s a problem with an economic system which sees a handful of billionaires grow their wealth massively during a pandemic, and zoom around space in rocket ships, while millions of people struggle to keep a roof over their heads in the richest country on Earth.
