An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Support a $2,000 a month UBI and a workers bill of rights

54 so far! Let’s get to 100 signers!

I urge you to support Sens. Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Ed Markey bill to give Americans $2,000 a month until the COVID-19 pandemic is over, and Congress person Ro Khanna's bill to establish an essential workers bill of rights. I am well aware that this may add to the deficit, but do you know what would off-set that? Not giving corporations and the elite tax breaks and stimulus dollars. They got their share, now we NEED OURS. When Jeff Bezos is able to net $28-billion in the first quarter, yet unemployment reaches its highest level since the Great Depression, a question of morality becomes glaringly obvious. A simple fact stands: a payroll tax holiday would only benefit those earning an income, not the +30-million people who recently filed for unemployment. If every American was to get a $2,000 a month check, that money would instantly be pumped back into the economy every time we purchase groceries and other necessities. The benefits out weigh the costs. We cannot afford the immorality of another stimulus package that benefits the top 10%, while +30-million people (a number that will surely increase in the following weeks and months) are forced to figure out how to put food on their tables.
