It's time to get back to work!
So many benefits that we worked so hard for, and for so many years, are in danger of being taken away or reduced that we must fight hard to restore them. Very wealthy and egotistical people are leading these attacks. We must now fight again to protect our earned rights, like Medicare, ACA, pensions, medical affordability and Social Security.
In the recent days of Gilroy, Dayton and El Paso have seen gun violence once again. The people in these cities have had enough of the gun violence. We all want this to stop. A bi-partisan bill to require background checks was passed by the house many months ago; Mitch McConnell will not let the bill go to the floor of the senate for vote.
It’s been 54 years since the Voting Rights Act was signed into law. We need to ensure equal access to the ballot box so that all citizens are able to vote. The United States Senate must understand that equal voting rights are for all citizens!
“Yes, we are being attacked again. So, we must go again to the barricades to protect these values. It’s time for all of us to get back to work!!"
We need to explain what kind of country we are. We started this union to protect our pensions. We believe in healthcare as a Human Right! We also demand clean air and clean water. We want every child to have a roof over their head, food, quality education, and the opportunity to have an equal chance for success in life.
The Social Security 2100 Act, if passed, would make the most significant update to Social Security since 1983. It would increase the benefit for millions of Americans. It would also ensure the Social Security Trust Fund for decades to come. It would protect low income workers by increasing the minimum monthly benefit. It helps Social Security retain value by adjusting benefits to current inflation levels. It also requires millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share. We must protect these benefits!!
Yes, we are being attacked again. So, we must go again to the barricades to protect these values. It’s time for all of us to get back to work!!
