As the coronavirus surges and temperatures drop, Americans are suffering now, Mainers are suffering now, and eviction protections are about to expire. Parents are waiting in lines at food pantries instead of at stores for Christmas presents, and instead of Happy New Year greetings we are likely to get eviction notices. It is inevitable that poverty, food insecurity, homelessness, and the health consequences of these will rise dramatically in Maine as Federal support programs expire. We are deeply concerned that our state's ability to provide assistance will also run out. We are calling on our Senators Angus King (I) and Susan Collins (R) to join with Senators Josh Hawley (R), Kevin McCarthy (R), and Bernie Sanders (I) in insisting that the latest bipartisan relief bill include $1,200 direct payment stimulus checks.

It's naïve to believe, as some Democratic Senators are saying, that this will get passed under Biden and a Republican majority Senate, and at any rate Americans can’t wait that long. About 5.8 million adults say they are somewhat to very likely to face eviction or foreclosure in the next two months, according to a survey completed Nov. 9 by the U.S. Census Bureau.There is Republican support now, Presidential support now, and now is the time to act. Mainers, and Americans, are counting on you.
