Help Is On The Way: American Rescue Plan Ignites A Powerful Recovery, Shows Government Works For The People
March 9, 2021
President Biden’s American Rescue plan is a presidency-defining victory that demonstrates the government once again works for the people. The American Rescue Plan fulfills President Biden’s promise to make health care more affordable, puts money into the pockets of people who need it the most, cuts child poverty in half, ignites a powerful economic recovery nearly twice as fast as previously expected, and so much more.
President Biden’s American Rescue Plan demonstrates that the government once again works for the people.
Associated Press: “President Joe Biden wants America to know that he’s from the government and he’s here to help.… But Biden is now staking his presidency on the idea that the government can use his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan not only to stop a pandemic and jobs crisis but also to catapult the country forward to tackle deep issues of poverty, inequality and more.”
The American Rescue Plan, along with President Biden’s rapid vaccine rollout, will ignite a powerful recovery nearly twice as fast as expected.
New York Times: “The American economy will accelerate nearly twice as fast as expected this year as the expected passage of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan, combined with a rapid vaccine rollout, ignites a powerful recovery from the pandemic, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said Tuesday.”
The American Rescue Plan delivers on President Biden’s promise to make health care affordable for more than a million middle-class families.
New York Times: “President Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill will fulfill one of his central campaign promises, to fill the holes in the Affordable Care Act and make health insurance affordable for more than a million middle-class Americans who could not afford insurance under the original law.”
The American Rescue Plan is a presidency-defining victory that will provide stimulus checks directly to tens of millions of American households.
CNN: “Joe Biden is on the cusp of a presidency-defining first 100 days victory and tens of millions of Americans could soon get stimulus checks as the $1.9 trillion Covid-19 rescue bill heads back to the House for a final vote.”
The American Rescue Plan would cut taxes in 2021 by an average of $3,000, with most of the benefits going to low- and middle-income families.
Forbes: “Pandemic Bill Would Cut Taxes By An Average of $3,000, With Most Relief Going to Low- And Middle-Income Households.”
The American Rescue Plan has the makings of a “policy revolution” that would deliver benefits for more than 93 percent of children.
New York Times: “Obscured by other parts of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus package, which won Senate approval on Saturday, the child benefit has the makings of a policy revolution… More than 93 percent of children — 69 million — would receive benefits under the plan, at a one-year cost of more than $100 billion.”
The American Rescue Plan would help to reduce inequities, and is the most significant legislation for Black farmers since the Civil Rights Act.
Washington Post: “A little-known element of President Biden’s massive stimulus relief package would pay billions of dollars to disadvantaged farmers — benefiting Black farmers in a way that some experts say no legislation has since the Civil Rights Act of 1964.”
