  • ACT NOW: Coronavirus Relief for Seniors and People with Disabilities Act

    While we huddle in our homes this weekend, they're putting together another deal to all offload dumptrucks full of our money to donors ("rescuing the economy") while we see none of it ("socialism"). We've seen this movie before, over and over - we've memorized the dialogue! This latest bailout will probably be voted on Monday.


    But there is a bill offering a voice to our most vulnerable populations: seniors, people with disabilities and caregivers. Call the Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121, ask your senators for support. According to AARP, Sen. Casey's (PA) Coronavirus Relief for Seniors and People with Disabilities Act provides:

    funding for nursing home surveys to promote infection control,
    Older Americans Act programs including home delivered meals,
    The National Family Caregiver Support Program,
    supportive services,
    elder rights protection,
    funding for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program,
    Medicaid home- and community-based services grants, and
    medical assistance to more people for Medicare cost-sharing during the Coronavirus emergency assistance period.
