There were 19,000 new COVID-19 cases on the day the CARES Act was signed into law. The number of new cases on August 1 was more than 3X that.
This pandemic hasn't stopped. The relief necessary to withstand it shouldn't stop either. https://t.co/WFzhIynl2R
Sending love to El Paso one year after a terrorist fueled by xenophobia committed the deadliest attack on Latinos in modern history. I stand with El Paso as this strong and beautiful community powerfully leads the way in disarming hate, ending gun violence, and defeating racism. https://t.co/2VGhayyDGE
New positive cases: ⬆
Deaths from COVID-19: ⬆
Small businesses closing: ⬆
Unemployment claims: ⬆
We should be increasing (not cutting!) relief. We need to get more help to more people as this crisis continues. https://t.co/dV0oZdi7py
There's a clear discrepancy in how Bill Barr treats Black Lives Matter protests and how he treats armed extremists as they storm a state Capitol with Confederate flags to carry out Trump's right-wing agenda. That's not equal justice under law. It's racism. https://t.co/RE10GMVZQO
If Republicans somehow managed to find the money to give a $2 trillion tax cut to corporations and the ultra-wealthy, they can find the money to extend $600 a week in unemployment benefits to help people withstand this crisis.
An already dire situation just got even worse for millions of people across America. We must act NOW to get more relief to more people so they can stay in their homes, put food on the table, pay their bills, and withstand this crisis.
This can't wait. https://t.co/bEeyoOxFxz
It's not too late to participate in the 2020 Census! You can also fill it out online at https://t.co/7rCG42pGAY. We need an accurate count so our region has its fair share of federal funds for the next decade.
Republicans passed a $740 billion Pentagon budget last week but they won't extend $600 a week in unemployment benefits to help people withstand this crisis.
Instead of investing in going to war all around the world, we should be investing in people all around this country.
More than 27 million people have lost health care during this pandemic. While we continue the fight for Medicare for All, @RepJoeKennedy and I are leading our colleagues in urging Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer to include our Medicare Crisis Program Act in the relief package. https://t.co/eOaeapz8jI
“If we hadn’t had that $600, we’d be homeless. Everything that I did with it was pay bills. I was behind on my power bill; I was behind on my water bill.”
Sara’s story is one of countless that shows why we MUST extend the $600/week in expanded assistance.
Rep. Jayapal on Republicans’ refusal to extend coronavirus relief benefits: “They never seemed to have a problem with whether or not we had money available when they passed a $2 trillion tax cut.”
We need Medicare For All and an end to employer-based health care.
And we need to match the urgency of this moment by passing the Medicare Crisis Program Act that I introduced with @RepJayapal to guarantee coverage to 50 million unemployed workers.
One year ago today, the El Paso shooting was not only an attack on the Latino community, but an assault on our entire American family.
We must honor the 23 people killed and 22 wounded by reaffirming our efforts to disarm hate and heal our nation with love. #ElPasoStronghttps://t.co/4UbvKuFMbB
One year ago, El Paso and the nation were shocked and heartbroken by the horrific act of domestic terrorism fueled by racism and xenophobia that killed 23 beautiful souls, injured 22, and devasted all of us. https://t.co/AkM3MefPKQ

.@RepJayapal is calling out the govt’s response to #BlackLivesMatter protests ... and lack of response to armed protesters rallying against Michigan’s stay-at-home orders.
"You are supposed to uphold democracy and secure equal justice under the law ..." https://t.co/6q81B4HBOA
"1.4 million NEW people filed for unemployment last week. That makes 19 weeks straight in which more than 1 million new people filed for benefits. People need more relief as this crisis continues."

Trump said that vote-by-mail is "inaccurate and fraudulent." He's lying—per usual.
Over the past two decades, more than 250 million ballots have been cast by mail. Take a guess as to what the fraud rate has been.
Rent is due at the end of the week and struggling families are counting on the Senate to quickly pass another relief bill. But we can’t just let Trump and his buddies use this bill to scoop up big chunks of relief funding and pad their pockets. #StopCOVIDCorruption
