I participated in a protest on Saturday that demanded that Congress pass recurring cash payments for the people. Their failure to provide financial support that is adequate for all of its people has caused so much unnecessary financial stress, death, and risk of life. I will not accept Congress fighting each month whether the people deserve to have financial stability through this. I am still waiting for unemployment, people have still not received any financial support. The reason we are seeing this panic and demand to re-open prematurely across the country is because people don't have financial security and are losing everything they've worked for. Living through a pandemic is stressful enough worrying that you or your loved ones could die...having to also worry about making ends meet is just cruel when they have thrown billions of dollars to big national industries.
