• What Caused it?

    After Wall Street crashed our economy and destroyed millions of livelihoods in the 2008 financial crisis, Congress and President Obama passed the Dodd-Frank Act to strengthen protections for consumers and make sure that history wouldn’t repeat itself. Wall Street executives and their lobbyists weren’t happy with it (no surprise), and they’ve been trying to chip away at it ever since.

    In 2018, high-powered bank executives were calling on Congress to weaken Dodd-Frank so their banks could slip out of those stronger oversight rules. One of those executives? Greg Becker. The CEO of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB).

    Many Democrats raised the alarm and fought hard against these changes, but Republicans and the banks won that battle. Donald Trump signed a bill into law that rolled back key parts of Dodd-Frank.

    The collapses of SVB and Signature Bank are direct results of a toxic mix of risky management and weakened supervision made possible by those changes.

    Extremist Republicans and the new House speaker are making a stink about the debt ceiling because

    they want to use it as an excuse to slash Social Security and Medicare.

    A few reminders for the new House Speaker:

    Raising the debt ceiling would not authorize a single cent of new spending.

    It would let the U.S. pay the bills that Kevin McCarthy and Donald Trump ALREADY ran up with tax breaks for billionaires and giant corporations.

    Kevin McCarthy himself voted to raise the debt ceiling three times under Donald Trump.

    He understood then what’s still true today: if the U.S. were to default on its debt, it would crash our economy. He didn’t want that to happen while Republicans controlled the White House.

    But he isn’t afraid to blast working families with an economy-killing cannon if it could make Joe Biden look bad.

    Earlier Democrats passed legislation to make the ultra-wealthy and big corporations start to pay their fair share and lower the debt.

    With McCarthy's new House majority, 221 House Republicans voted this week to undo that legislation to make the ultra-wealthy and big corporations start to pay their fair share in taxes,

    A change that would add $114 billion to the deficit!




    The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 will tackle inflation, lower costs for American families, and reduce the deficit.

    • This law allows Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices for millions of seniors, saving hundreds of millions of dollars, and lowers health insurance costs for 13 million Americans by an average of $800 a year, under the Affordable Care Act.

    • The law caps seniors’ Medicare out-of-pocket expenses for prescription drugs at $2,000 a year.

    • The law will improve our energy security and tackle our climate crisis – by providing tax credits and investments for energy projects, and creating thousands of new jobs and helping lower energy costs in the future.

    • The law will reduce the deficit beyond the record setting $1.7 trillion deficit reduction this year, which will help fight inflation as well.

    • And will pay for all of this by requiring big corporations to pay their fair share of taxes.

    Through the Infrastructure Act:
    • The Virginia Health Department will receive $46 million in federal funding to replace lead water lines throughout the state, in an effort to fight contamination in the commonwealth’s drinking water.

    • Virginia will receive Hundreds of Millions to improve roads and rail service.

    Help with Internet and Computer Expenses

    Internet access is necessary for work, school, healthcare, and more. Unfortunately, high speed internet remains unaffordable for too many households. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) runs a program, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), that reduces the cost of getting online for people with limited income. Many internet providers offer fully covered internet plans – meaning you may even get high-speed internet for free.

    If your household income is 200% or less than the Federal Poverty Guidelines or someone in your household participates in certain government assistance programs, you may be eligible for the benefits the ACP provides. Visit the ACP website to see if you qualify. Please do not contact Social Security with questions about the ACP.

    You can take advantage of the discounts with confidence knowing that receiving ACP assistance does not affect your Social Security retirement, survivors, or disability benefits.

    What discounts are available?

    • $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households. Some companies offer internet service for $30, making internet service free.
    • $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands.
    • Eligible households also can receive a one-time discount of up to $100 toward purchasing a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.

    How do you get the discounts?

    You can apply online with the FCC, directly contacting your current internet service provider, or by mail.
