COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

The House Floor debate over #DreamAndPromiseNow has begun! 2 hours of debate time, equally split between supporters and opponents of #HR6.

.@sariedinger: CAP (@pwolgin 's employer) is funded by Big Biz. The anti-American #DREAMAct is a dream for Big Biz: it'd add 2 million new legal workers to the labor supply, depressing wages. It'd also keep some Americans out of college. And, it'd braindrain the third world.
