Velshi’s message to Congress: 55 million Americans live in poverty -- they need more relief money


While Republicans are busy trying to actually tear down democracy, there are difficult realities facing America that could really use their attention. 55 million Americans are living in poverty, approximately 1 in 6 Americans are now food insecure, and up to 40 million renters are behind on payments. It took nine months to give Americans $600 of their own money back. This relief bill is pathetic, it’s shameful, and it needs to be fixed.
