We've Got You.
.@Senator_____ We need extended PUA, PEUC, and FPUC as well as healthcare and rent relief and we need it NOW. #ReliefNow
.@Senator_____ The FPUC expired in July, leaving 26 million people stranded without it. Now at the end of Dec 12 million of those people lose all support as the PUA and PEUC expire. Extend all 3 programs now. #ReliefNow @ExtendPUA
.@Senator____ I am your constituent and I need you to urge Mitch McConnell to work with Democratic leadership to negotiate bipartisan relief that includes FPUC/PUA/PEUC extensions NOW. @ExtendPUA
.@Senator ____ We need to see you support the $600 in full and demand negotiations continue with urgency until a comprehensive pandemic relief bill with a focus on The People is passed. Your constituents’ lives depend on it. #ReliefNow @ExtendPUA ExtendPUA.org
.@Sen _____ This is urgent. This is not politics, it is our lives. Millions of people are suffering. I am one of them. We need your help and we need it to be loud and to provide real solutions. @ExtendPUA #ReliefNow #SaveThe600 ExtendPUA.org
We need relief for all now. #DoNotAbandonUS #ReliefNow
.@Senator____, 72% of voters support a $2 trillion COVID relief package. 74% of voters think a relief bill is more important than SCOTUS. Get it done. @ExtendPUA #ExtendFPUC #SaveThe600 #ReliefNow
.@Senator_____, Publicly support the negotiated bill between Pelosi/Mnuchin. Demand it be brought to the Senate floor. Say you will vote yes. Help your constituents. @ExtendPUA #ReliefNow #DoNotAbandonUS
.@Senator ____, Publicly support HEROES 2.0. Demand it be brought to the Senate floor. Say you will vote yes. Help your constituents. @ExtendPUA #ReliefNow #DoNotAbandonUS
.@Senator____, We need a comprehensive pandemic relief deal NOW. Millions of Americans are facing hunger, lack of health care, and eviction. We are out of time & the pandemic is not over. #ReliefNow #DoNotAbandonUS @ExtendPUA
.@SenateGOP Stop playing with our lives. We need healthcare, housing, & food relief, state services, & extended FPUC/PUA/PEUC. Get us thru the pandemic. Pass real comprehensive pandemic relief now. #ReliefNow #DoNotAbandonUS @ExtendPUA
The FPUC has been allowed to expire due to inaction on the part of the people we elected. Over 25 million people are panicking. What are you doing to help, @Senator____? @ExtendPUA #ExtendFPUC #SaveThe600 ExtendPUA.org
@Sen _____ The full $600 is the need. Extend FPUC and Expand PUA. Pandemic assistance should continue until the pandemic is over, not end as it’s getting worse. @ExtendPUA #ExtendFPUC #SaveThe600 ExtendPUA.org
.@Senator _____ Extend the $600 in full until the pandemic is over, expand the PUA to those excluded, support state agencies to pay out backlogged claims, & provide hazard pay/protections, healthcare relief, rent relief, & SBA. @ExtendPUA #ReliefNow #SaveThe600 ExtendPUA.org
@ _______ Our lives depend on this. We’re making our voices heard. Are you? @ExtendPUA #ExtendFPUC #SaveThe600 #ReliefNow #DoNotAbandonUS ExtendPUA.org
America's "For The People" government is looking an awful lot like it doesn't care very much about the People. We need to see that you do. Now. @ExtendPUA #ReliefNow #SaveThe600 ExtendPUA.org
Short nuggets pulled from our talking points
Parents are not able to return to work when their children are not in school and without safe and affordable child care options. Forcing children back into dangerous conditions at school so their parents can work isn't the solution either. (Support: New York Times)
Billionaires and corporations have actually increased their wealth considerably during the pandemic and we’re debating whether we should give struggling individuals $600 per week. (Support: Our "Billionaires" talking point and this incredibly frustrating-to-see graphic).
Hundreds of billions of dollars have distributed by the federal government to giant corporations with zero oversight. Individuals getting $600/wk to survive are not the problem.
Some Senators think $600/week is too much. They make $3,346/week (and that’s just what they get from taxpayers).
75% of voters believe we should maintain or increase the current unemployment insurance. (Source: Morning Consult)
