Sign Now:Support the Sanders-Warren Act for Hurricane Maria recovery

President Donald Trump, Majority Leader Paul Ryan, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are failing to act to help the people of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands survive and rebuild from the devastation of the fossil-fueled Hurricane Maria.

The 3.5 million American citizens of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands have no representation in Congress -- they need all of us to demand action from our elected leaders.

Senators Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts have introduced legislation to mobilize all the resources and assets needed to restore electricity, provide clean water and food, a safe haven and access to medical care.

The plan includes a total waiver of the cost of matching funds to receive federal assistance, rejects privatization efforts, and promotes a new resilient, decentralized and renewable energy-based grid.

Please add your name as a citizen co-sponsor. Upon signing, you will receive an email with a link letting you write a letter to Congress, if you are fortunate enough to have representation.

To the U.S. Congress: "Aid our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands immediately, and co-sponsor the just and comprehensive relief and recovery legislation introduced by Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren."

    We have abandoned the people of Puerto Rico simply because their votes dont count ina US election! Congress you should be ashamed! But it seems you have no conscience and only greed in your hearts! You will be judged by a higher power and from where I sit you will not be judged well! Help Puerto Rico recover from this disaster it is the only humane thing to do! Are you human and do you have any love in your heart? History will judge you and so will God!

    I beg of you to take care of these citizens!! Consigning them to suffering is unforgivable.

    I am appalled at how low we have sunk into pathological greed and exclusion of those in need. We have often failed to be what we aspire to be, but I did hope we would always aspire to be generous, and to advocate for those who have no voice.

    They rate a 10, for sure. On a scale of 100,000.

    Senator Collins. If you can sign a tax bill cutting taxes for the wealthiest people in the country and corporations who are already making larger profits than ever in history…. perhaps this ”giveaway” to people suffering whose basic needs aren’t being met might not be your cup of tea. Might I suggest you rethink your priorities!

    Thank you Senator Sanders and Senator Warren.

    Are we but greedy people, who steal all we can, completely use it up, chew it, then spit it out? Trump left the island in ruins, just as he left debt with his defunct golf course. No wonder it was hard to show his face again. There is a faction of Americans, who are robbing democracy from the rest of us. Enough! He abandoned us in California, with the fires. If a bill ever came up to succeed, I’d sign it in a New York minute. Take CARE of your territories, Congress!
