As communities, businesses, and other vital institutions begin to safely reopen, and as the economy gets moving again, the last thing lawmakers should do is jeopardize our recovery by enacting bad legislation, such as bailouts for state and local governments for spending that had nothing to do with a COVID-19 response.
Instead, Congress and the administration should work together to advance policies that focus on people and spur real growth by creating an environment that fosters innovation and empowers everyone.
We can start with the recommendations outlined in our Recover Stronger roadmap. The goal should be to not just recover but to recover stronger by avoiding the big-spending approach of the past that has consistently failed to live up to its promise of helping all Americans.
- No Bailouts or Cronyism
- Avoid Additional Government Barriers to Recovery
- Don’t Worsen the Fiscal Condition of the Budget
Contact your legislator and tell them to say reject bailouts and make NO BAD DEALS!
