Americans have gone too long without a new COVID-19 relief package. The pandemic is spiking again and millions of working families are without jobs through no fault of their own. Our government must pass a new relief package to help bridge the gap between now and when our economy is able to stand on its own once again.
We ask Congress: please help people now. They cannot afford to wait any longer.
