A nurse died today from #COVID19 my heart breaks for her family. After dedicating herself to a career of helping people, she died alone. I think of all the lives she impacted thru healing....the patients she educated on how to live their best lives.
I think about those who will never know her or her love for this profession. She loved being a nurse because she loved people. Now she’s gone. @realDonaldTrump and @jaredkushner that stockpile belongs to TAXPAYERS. It belongs to the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapist and aids
We don’t know if she would be alive today if she had had proper #PPE but for her family to be left wondering is a travesty of justice. Trump is making a mockery of one of the most respected careers in our country. We are dying taking care of American citizens.

Today, we release our #FromTheFrontline report covering Universal Credit and local housing allowance (LHA):

We've used real life experiences to show how #UniversalCredit and #LHA are pushing people towards hardship and poverty.

Settle in for a /thread...
Our research shows that in 97% of areas a small family can’t afford even the cheapest local rents with #LHA.

This creates a shortfall between people’s rent and what they get in housing allowance; 65% of households have a shortfall. #FromTheFrontline
With #LHA not doing its job in covering the cost of renting, families have to make up shortfalls in other ways.

This means they are having to make decisions no family should have to make – such as whether to cut back on food or heating to pay the rent. #FromTheFrontline
