from Mitch McConnell. Have the House pass good bills that help families
and hold corporations accountable.
The text of the Senate bill just got released -- and it's a giant check to
the Trump re-election campaign.
It puts trillions in the pockets of his corporate donors, allows Trump to
repeat his 2016 fake populist rhetoric that will deceive Americans, and

Any money to corporations should come with airtight conditions like no
firing workers during this crisis, no stock buybacks ever, workers on
corporate boards, a $15 minimum wage, and Americans getting voting stakes
