President Biden’s ‘Build Back Better Act’ would have reversed 40 years of trickle-down tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations, provided funds for healthcare, eased financial barriers to childcare and early education, invested in wildfire prevention and drought relief efforts, and more. The House passed the BBB plan, but the Senate did not. It is shameful that our country will suffer as a result of Congress’s moral failure to support people and care for our planet.
Tell the Senate to Make the Ultra-Wealthy Pay Their Fair Share!
The trillion-dollar investment and tax plan Democrats have been working on for a year will no longer include tax revisions to close loopholes and require wealthy people to pay their fair share. It’s time Congress raises the revenue needed to support working families, not just the wealthy special interests who don’t pay a fair amount of taxes. Call 888-436-6478 to let your Senator know how upset you are that this tax fairness measure will no longer be included in our budget reconciliation package. Call twice to reach both of your Senators!
Pregnant workers are routinely denied basic, temporary accommodations to ensure a healthy pregnancy. These accommodations are often as simple as a stool to sit on, a break from lifting heavy boxes, schedule changes, and protection from dangerous conditions. In this 117th Congress, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is closer than ever to becoming law. We can’t let this moment slip away — urge the Senate to pass Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (S.1486) today!
Over 2 million low-income adults living near the poverty line in 12 states don’t have health insurance. They earn less than $12,880 per year – too much to qualify for traditional Medicaid, but not enough for Affordable Care Act subsidies. Congress needs to finish the ACA and close the Medicaid Coverage gap in budget reconciliation so that people with limited financial resources can live healthier lives.
