Tuesday afternoon, Bill Lee made the reckless and irresponsible decision to cut unemployment benefits. Prior to COVID-19, Lee had the chance to pass laws to protect our economy and refused to meet the moment. His decision to leave Tennessee vulnerable, led to unemployment reaching an all-time high across both rural and urban parts of the state. More than 200,000 Tennesseans have lost their jobs in the past 6 months alone, and Lee has decided to further cripple Tennesseans. Why? Because Bill Lee is not interested in serving Tennessee families. Lee has one goal: advance the interests of the fringe dark money interest groups he represents.
Tennessee families deserve and need a leader who will wake up every single morning ready to fight for them. We literally cannot afford another four years of Bill Lee’s continued destruction. Fourteen days ago, we launched Beat Bill Lee with the mission to prioritize Tennessee working families and beat the extreme right power grab by Bill Lee. We cannot do this alone though. In order to launch a digital campaign and voter mobilization program that reaches all four corners of Tennessee, we have to raise over half a million dollars. Can you join us by making a donation? Every cent counts. Thank you for your commitment to Tennessee, our economy, and our families. Let’s Beat Bill Lee, - Emily C. Cupples, Beat Bill Lee PAC Director
