Justin Trowbridge started this petition to U.S. House of Representatives and

We have seen so much that has so little to do with Covid get passed into these relief packages. This latest "effort" by our representatives in congress amounts to $600 per qualifying American. Median household income was $68,703 in 2019. That is $1,321.21 per week. That means that our representatives passed a bill that equates to 1/2 of a week of normal income after months of forced shutdowns, closed businesses and millions of lost jobs.

I suggest we the people, use this petition as an opportunity to submit our own bill to tell our representatives clearly and concisely exactly what we believe to be a relief package. If we assume 290,000,000 Americans receive credit for the current $600. I propose a 1.2 Trillion dollar relief package which nothing else can be attached to and the money can go to nothing else. That would mean $4,137.93 for each American. Currently a household of 4 received $2,400; less than 2 weeks median pay. Under my proposal that same household would receive $16,551.72. More than 3 months median pay.

We wish to make it explicitly clear that relief given directly to Americans is the only acceptable provision of this bill and absolutely no riders for anything other than direct relief paid to the American people are allowed to be attached to the bill. We are taking this opportunity to remind our elected representatives that they are exactly that. Representatives chosen by us to carry out our will as a people. They are not leaders elected to dictate to us what is best for us.
