You can’t possibly understand what it’s like to live on the verge of homelessness and hunger during a pandemic or what it’s like living in a homeless shelter that doesn’t have enough beds for our families, but it’s what we’ve been experiencing for the last 9 months.
Millions of us have waited in long lines at the food bank or waiting weeks for the mail to arrive for a SNAP card to feed our kids. Negotiating with utility companies to keep the lights, heat, and water on for our children. You don’t know what it’s like to look for jobs when there isn’t any.
We pay you $3,300/week to represent us, instead you do nothing but give grandstanding speeches about life and liberty as people are struggling and dying during a pandemic. You are supposed to be in the Senate and voting to pass economic relief for Texas constituencies.
$2000 checks is a matter of life and death for millions of Americans. Do not stand in the way of economic relief for struggling Texas families and people who lost their small business due to the government mishandling the COVID19 pandemic.
Listen to Texas families, not Wall Street. Show up and vote for a $2,000 survival checks.
