Call Your NC Senators. No State Bailouts – Ever!

 

 

The time has come to make your voice heard--oppose state bailouts!

Nancy Pelosi has released a new 1,815-page coronavirus “relief” bill that will cost American taxpayers $3 TRILLION and would provide close to $900 billion in bailouts for state and local governments. The House may vote as soon as this Friday!

State bailouts waste taxpayer money while rewarding mismanaged states at the expense of responsible ones.

If the bill proposed by Nancy Pelosi becomes law, it would:

  • Reward states who have mismanaged their finances for many years.
  • Unfairly make you pay for those mistakes!
  • And cripple our nation's economic recovery by incentivizing even longer shutdowns.

Although the bill is called the HEROES Act, it is truly a VILLAIN in disguise.

Here’s how you can stop this bill:

  1. Call your representative using this call script and talking points (use the link to also find your representative’s phone number.) Congress is checking their voicemails, so if they don’t pick up, leave a voicemail and tell them to “oppose state bailouts.”
  2. Tweet at your representative using the tweet at the bottom of this page (enter your zip code to auto-populate the tweet with your representative’s Twitter handle)
  3. Write a letter to the editor (LTE) using this tip sheet and talking points. If you need any assistance, or get published, reach out to your regional coordinator to let them know!
