The Democratic Party of Multnomah County calls for clear, simple language to provide relief for our people and our communities.
The US Treasury will disburse $2,000 per month to every U.S. resident for a 12 month period to provide relief during the pandemic.
Please help us spread this message.
“In Oregon and across the country, too many people are struggling to pay rent, afford medicine, and buy groceries. The Emergency Money for the People Act would provide monthly payments of $2000 for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, giving people certainty and reliability when they need it most. I’m proud to co-sponsor this bill and urge my colleagues in Congress to join me in supporting this important legislation.”
— Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR1), Cosponsor of H.R. 6496

We All Deserve an Economic Boost
Over 40 years of trickle down economics we have given our tax money to grow the wealth of companies like Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot, and fund the military industrial complex. Now it’s time for us to get our dividend refunded. $2000 NOW!
