Shame on the Senate

 

September 16, 2020

 

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the HEROES Act on May 15. That was 124 days ago. Since then, we have lost 111,000 people to COVID-19, and the numbers just keep going up.

Again, that is 111,000 American deaths. And Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell still refuses to act.

The Senate’s inaction also means millions of families will go hungry and face homelessness. Inaction threatens our public services and means our public schools can’t operate safely.

It’s time to pass the HEROES Act, and it’s time to provide relief and help to America’s people. We can’t wait another minute.

 

Tell your senators to pass the HEROES Act now.

 

Thank you for all you do.

 

 

In Solidarity,
