Don’t worry, little people, the benevolent Senator Kamala Harris is trying to give your families (not each of you, your families) up to $500 a month during this time of uncertainty in America.
And maybe not even a whole $500 … up to.
We cannot ignore the strain that emergency situations like the coronavirus pandemic put on many families who are already living paycheck to paycheck.
I introduced the LIFT Act to give working families up to $500 a month. We need it now more than ever.

Look at her patting herself on the back.
Folks are less than impressed.
Is Kamala Harris serious? People out of work what are they going to do with up to $500 a month? You know what that would get you in NY, NJ, California? Dirty looks. https://t.co/AZd7z51HFT

And yup, the Left is mad at her too.
In fact, they may be angrier than the Right:
The average rent for an apartment in neoliberal Top Cop Kamala Harris' San Francisco, California, where she is a senator, is $2000-$3000 a month
Her "solution" to this crisis is *UP TO $500* for an entire family
In CA or NY that's how much groceries costhttps://t.co/umnWlIKZ1U

You should be embarrassed to suggest that families can survive on "up to" 125$ a week.

If I get laid off from my job and lose my healthcare in the middle of a global pandemic and you tell me “Don’t worry, we’re sending your family up to $500 a month”, I’m going to assume you’re mocking me. https://t.co/bOSjr6MFeF

Pathetic. “*up to* $500/mo *per family*.” The Democratic Party is a joke https://t.co/eYnAr3b5dz

‘Up to 500 a month’ …y’all…. ‘up to…’ https://t.co/EoXhvU9756

Kamala Harris thinks UP TO $500 is going to pay our rents and LIFT US UP.
The level of rage I feel right now. We don’t need SCRAPS from the taxes WE pay. https://t.co/SUK2bgpdgk

remember people, it's UP TO 500 bucks a month!!!

Remember people, they’re just giving you back the money they already took from you.
“Up to” “$500” “working families” people are literally going to starve and this is the STARTING POINT IN THE NEGOTIATION??

Have fun with that, Kamala.
