Thread: This gut wrenching article really underscores the urgency & importance of selecting a Dem candidate who will tangibly improve the lives of working Americans. Several policies in #Kamala's #3AMAgenda will tangibly make a difference for families like the Goodman family.
First issue: Rents are too high. Ms. Goodman makes $9/hr but her rent was $950/month. That is 66% of her income. #KamalasPlan called the Rent Relief Act will provide a tax credit caps rent & utilities at 30%. Non-partisan analysis determined RRA will lift 7.8M ppl out of poverty
Second issue: Stagnant wages
#Kamala supports raising the min wage to $15/hr but additionally, #KamalasPlan the LIFT Act would put $6,000/yr ($500 can be accessed monthly) in Ms. Goodman's pockets. Non-partisan analysis determined the LIFT Act lifts 9.6M ppl out of poverty
#KamalasPlan (LIFT Act) recognizes that the average family cannot afford a $400 emergency. As the article points out "network poverty" prevents many people from turning to family to borrow money.#KamalaWillAct to fix this problem. #Kamala2020 #KamalaHarris
Though not mentioned in the article, the cost of child care can also be prohibitive. #KamalasPlan will offer a child care tax credit for families as well. #Kamala2020 #ForThePeople #KamalaHarris #UnitedForKamala
So to sum up, #Kamala's #3AMAgenda is focused squarely on tackling the most pressing needs of working families: rent, take home pay, child care, and more. More importantly, these are issues she has prioritized for YEARS not just bullet points in Presidential plan pdf. #Kamala2020
PS- There is a Go Fund Me for the Goodman family. Since we are a couple of years from a #KamalaHarris WH...#KHive we can support this family by donating now.
