SIGN THE PETITION: Tell Congress to put people first – not corporations.

When I was growing up, my dad worked in the mills. Getting things right by patience and precision was as much a watchword as anything in our family.

Measure twice. Cut once.

Which is why, when it comes to this pandemic, we need a carefully-considered response. We must get this right if we're all going to get through this.

Any money that we spend needs to go where it will do the most good — to support unemployed workers, small businesses struggling to stay afloat, cash-strapped state and local governments, medical research, and hospitals and first-responders that need PPE.

But no more big corporate bailouts. No more Team Trump slush fund. Sign my petition and add your voice to this movement.

This is tough. Everyday families are struggling. We must fast-track economic relief to working families—and shut down the gravy train of Wall Street giveaways.

I need you to speak out loudly — to make sure Congress can hear you say: No more bailouts for Wall Street while Main Street can barely keep the lights on.
