Become a Cosponsor of the COVID-19 Commission Act

April 20, 2020

Presently, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are over 2,261,000 across the world and over 706,000 in the United States. While we do not yet know the full impact COVID-19 will have on the nation, already more Americans have been killed by the virus than
died in the September 11, 2001 attacks.  After those attacks, the 9/11 Commission was established to provide a full accounting of the circumstances surrounding the attacks and the Commission’s recommendations drove massive reforms to how we share intelligence
and organize the government to counter terrorist threats.  It is clear that we, as a nation, are at another inflection point.  Americans today will again demand a full accounting of our level of preparedness and response to this global public health emergency.  

Fully Fund the PPP

April 20, 2020

These unprecedented times have hit small businesses especially hard. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was designed as a lifeline to protect these pillars of our communities. The PPP was rolled out swiftly and has already helped nearly 1.6 million firms
nationwide. However, incredible demand has seen the initial $350 billion investment run dry. We are hopeful that an agreement can be reached very soon on the next tranche of funding, but we would like to see a plan to address any future shortfalls after that
is resolved.

DEADLINE EXTENDED – Repeal Tax Break for Real Estate Developers Buried in the CARES Act – Closing COB TONIGHT

April 20, 2020

As you may know, buried in the CARES Act was a provision that provides
a $170 billion tax break that would benefits real estate investors and hedge fund managers like the President and Jared Kushner. What’s worse is this provision applies to losses incurred not just in 2020, but in 2018 and 2019, well before the current pandemic.
While most Americans will get a one-time economic impact payment of $1,200, the individuals eligible for this tax break stand to gain an average tax break of $1.6 million.
