In our issue survey, Marilyn responded that the economic recovery has not helped everybody. We need to give taxpayers another recovery check or a monthly check for families.
"I’ve spent my career advocating for jobs, opportunity, fairness, small businesses, and economic security for all people. Fighting inflation, lowering costs for families, and creating an economy that works for everyone is my top priority in Congress. I’ve championed infrastructure investments in transportation, utilities, and affordable housing, and voted for the bipartisan infrastructure package to create jobs and support workers. I also voted for the permanent refundability of the Child Tax Credit, and key investments for our long-term care workforce to serve our seniors. I also support a national paid family leave policy and will continue to work with labor to protect the right to organize and collectively bargain. I support pilot programs to help develop a national strategy that will provide financial stability for people, and I support expanding effective policies like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and registered apprenticeships."
