DNC on America Passing 250,000 COVID-19 Deaths

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after the United States passed 250,000 deaths from the COVID-19 pandemic:

“A quarter of a million Americans have perished because of this pandemic. A quarter of a million lives have been taken by this administration’s inaction, incompetence, and cruelty. That’s one of the reasons the American people decided to elect new leadership to the White House. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will put the health and safety of the American people first. In fact, President-elect Biden has already appointed a COVID-19 task force led by public health experts to tackle this crisis and save lives. With daily cases at an all-time high and millions still out of work, we need bold leadership to stem the tide, coordinate the swift and widespread delivery of a vaccine, revive our economy, and finally end this pandemic once and for all. It’s time for action. It’s time to build back better.”
