To: Members of Congress

We need a Bold Recovery Now: Pass the American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan!

Congress must stop playing political games. Millions of people are still suffering due to COVID-related challenges, and need support immediately. We can’t just go back to the way things were before the pandemic. Both the Senate and House must move to immediately pass the American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan, which together would revitalize our economy and provide much-needed relief to Americans.

Why is this important?

The American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan will transform the lives of millions of people across the country. They contain provisions to deliver millions of good jobs, massive investments in our crumbling infrastructure, free community college education, universal preschool, permanent child tax credits for low- and middle-income families—not to mention that this legislation will increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans and corporations, so that they’re finally paying more of their fair share.

But the GOP, led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, is bent on obstructing President Biden's agenda and stopping Democrats from delivering for the people. Other Republicans in the Senate have wasted precious weeks by putting forward laughably inadequate counter-proposals to President Biden's plans. With the Senate planning a month-long recess in August, we need to demand that Congress pass the AJP and AFP without delay.

We need to keep up the pressure on our members of Congress in order to make this a reality. Sign the petition, and demand that our government provide much-needed and long-overdue relief to the American people.


Reasons for signing

  • We need to tax the wealthy and not just care about the 1%, but also middle class and poor Americans.
  • This is important!
  • I can’t go back to work without putting my kids in daycare which I can’t do because I have no income and no savings. I need this bill to pass to help my family.
