After a month of laying around the house and schmoozing with high dollar donors the Congress has come back to DC to work on yet another bill that would help during this pandemic crisis we are having.
For the sake of “compromise” the work being done does little to help the jobless keep their homes or feed their children…..and the Dems will do little to help…..
As the Senate returned from its nearly month-long recess on Tuesday, there was little prospect that Congress would provide any significant relief for the tens of millions of workers who lost their $600 weekly federal jobless benefit when it was allowed to expire on July 31.
The ending of that lifeline plunged millions of working class families into desperate financial straights. The economy is still short 11 million jobs from the level of employment in February, and more than 30 million unemployed workers continue to receive government aid.
As of this week, only 19 states will be providing the temporary $300-per-week benefit authorized by President Trump in an executive order last month. The program is financed by Federal Emergency Relief Agency funds that are expected to run out in about five weeks.
The Aspen Institute reported last month that 30-40 million people in the US were at risk of being evicted in the coming months. The Hamilton Project reported even before the cutoff of jobless aid that more than 20 percent of all US households and over 40 percent of mothers with children under the age of 13 were experiencing food insecurity.
Please pay attention!
This illustrates that the Congress, both Repubs and Dems, care little about the plight of the people of this nation…..keep that in mind when you go to cast a vote.
Vote for candidates that actually have a plan to help the people with the problems this pandemic has created……Party means NOTHING! They are the same!
