Young Invincibles sent a letter to Speaker of the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, Senate Majority Leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell, and Minority Leader, Sen. Chuck Schumer detailing our policy recommendations for any upcoming legislative stimulus package to combat the effects of COVID-19.
“The temporary relief measures have mitigated hardship, but significant gaps and implementation challenges have delayed aid to some households, even as these measures are soon set to expire. Now is not the time for political or partisan games. We are seeing a surge in Covid cases, with the United States surpassing 10 million confirmed cases, at a time when long term unemployment is stifling economic growth. To support young people across the nation as we continue to confront the pandemic and economic hardship resulting from it, Congress must move to enact meaningful measures addressing health care access, economic safety net programs, and student debt relief.”
