From Heritage Action for America
The Coronavirus response package is dropping very quickly - over the next 24 hours.
We have a small window of opportunity to influence this bill. As soon as possible, please reach out to Senator Burr and Senator Tillis at (202) 224-3154 and (202) 224-6342 and on Twitter at @SenThomTillis @SenatorBurr and ask them to oppose bailouts.
Please also share with others and urge them to do the same.
Virtually every interest group in Washington will attempt to exploit the coronavirus crisis to further their interests. Congress should not allow the crisis to be exploited by special interests seeking bailouts or special favors or by those seeking to achieve policy aims that are only tangentially related to the crisis. There is no justification for an exercise in extravagant and wasteful spending under the cover of the coronavirus crises. Don't let them get away with their typical, “Never let a good crisis go to waste”.
Any policy response to the adverse economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic should be 1) targeted, 2) temporary, and 3) directed at aiding public health efforts.
Make sure they hear your message: Congress should not exploit a crisis by bailing out special interests or handing out favors to those seeking to achieve policy aims unrelated to the outbreak.
Thank you for sending a message to your Senator on this urgent issue! I will be standing by to answer any questions.
