Moms Rising helps you tell your Congressfolk and your President to keep their money-grubbing hands off food stamps and Medicaid funding. Our Glorious Elites act like you're supposed to be ashamed of needing either one of these things, when hard times can hit anyone, and we all pay into food stamps and Medicaid, so we can all draw from it when we need to. But naturally the politicians are trying to attack these things so they can pay for their welfare handouts to the rich and to corporations, with our President allowing states to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients. Hello! Most Medicaid recipients, and more than half of folks who get food stamps, are already working, because their employers don't provide health insurance or pay them enough -- and, again, these are the same employers who got a massive welfare handout from the tax "reform." Is it too much to ask that our representatives do something other than give us the back of their hands?
Meanwhile, Rootstrikers helps you tell the U.S. Postmaster General to support postal banking for low- and middle-income working families. Bank of America just ended free checking accounts for folks with less than $1500, despite making $21 billion in profits last year and getting handed an estimated $3.5 billion in handouts from the Trump tax "reform," so yeah, there's a need for working families to be able to open a savings account at the Post Office, as they did for over 50 years, ending in 1966. Banks were proliferating and could offer the same services just as safely then -- but not too many years later, they started pulling out of low-income areas, leaving an opening for check-cashing services and payday lenders, which are, ah, decidedly not safe places to park your money. And with banksters still loathe to serve urban and rural poor areas some 40-odd years later, postal banking deserves another shot.
