DNC on Jobs Report

DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement:

“The latest jobs report is another confirmation that Americans need relief now—and that’s why Senate Democrats took a big first step toward passing a historic COVID relief package early this morning, with Vice President Kamala Harris casting the deciding vote. Despite hours of partisan, political games by Senate Republicans, Democrats are delivering on our promises: relief checks that will put more money directly in Americans’ pockets, help for small businesses and individuals who have lost their jobs or gotten sick during this pandemic, funding for local governments to speed up vaccinations and increase testing, and so much more. This is leadership. This is what Americans voted for in November. Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Democrats across the country are keeping our word and getting things done for the American people. And we’re just getting started.”
