Senate: Families Are Counting On You to Pass the Build Back Better Act Now
The US Senate is on the verge of passing a historic bill that could transform the lives of families all over the country.
As Democrats in the Senate negotiate over what will be included in the Build Back Better Act, some politicians are trying to cut critical items for children and families. Tell your Senators that families across the country are counting on them to pass an economic package right away that includes:
An extension of the expanded child tax credit so monthly checks keep coming until children turn 18.
Universal preschool for all 3 and 4 year olds so children can get a great start and parents can work.
Paid family and medical leave for ALL workers.
Direct support to families to cut child care costs and a fair wage for child and eldercare workers; direct home and community based support for seniors and the disabled community and pay a fair wage for home care workers so families can stay together.
Lower prescription drug and health insurance costs, and fill the Medicaid gap to cover health care for low income families.
A pathway to citizenship for DREAMers and essential workers.
Forcing big corporations and billionaires to finally pay their fair share in taxes to make all this possible!
This bill could be a GAMECHANGER for our children and families. Already we’re seeing the expanded Child Tax Credit lift millions of children out of poverty -- this would go even further.
But we need to make sure our Senators know that families are counting on them to pass this bill NOW. Sign and send the petition to your Senators telling them to take care of families and pass the Build Back Better Act.
