Everything is happening all at once these days, and the news cycles seem to get shorter and shorter each and every week. Regardless, Congress is still voting, the administration continues its work, and the courts are still handing down decisions.
Today, FreedomWorks was joined by 9 organizations in sending a letter to President Trump and House and Senate Republican leadership asking that any existing or future money appropriated to state and local governments by Congress in response to the COVID-19 pandemic be (a) made for use only in matters directly related to COVID-19 and (b) contingent on state and local reopening plans for the economy. The text of the letter is below and a PDF is attached.
It’s no secret that the “blue wave” of November 2018 brought a whole host of freshmen Democrats into Congress, who have proven themselves unworthy of the trust of the American people.

FreedomWorks is proud to announce that our bill of the month for June 2020 is H.R. 2558, which would define the dollar as a fixed weight of gold, introduced by Rep. Alex Mooney (R-W.Va.).

Senate Democrats alone blocked the potential for the full Senate to move to consider the Just and Unifying Solutions To Invigorate Communities Everywhere (JUSTICE) Act, S. 3985, before breaking for Independence Day recess this year. Introduced by Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) in an effort to address policing reform in the wake of the murder of George Floyd which spurred protests and riots across the country, the JUSTICE Act would make small strides toward holding police accountable.
