IN THE STATES: Republicans Vote Against Lowering Costs

In the states this week, as Democrats passed bills to provide emergency funding to address the shortage of infant formula and help prevent gas price gouging at the pump, House Republicans overwhelmingly voted against these measures – showing that while Democrats are laser-focused on lowering costs, Republicans are more interested in pushing their ultra-MAGA agenda than helping the American people. 

Also this week, Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison is traveling to states across the South to host community engagement events and promote how the Biden-Harris administration and Democrats have delivered for the American people while Republicans are focused only on pushing their extreme MAGA agenda. 

Here are some photos from Chair Harrison’s listening session with LGBTQ and youth leaders in Orlando and roundtable with Puerto Rican community leaders in Kissimmee, Florida:

On Monday, President Biden unveiled his Housing Supply Action Plan to help lower housing costs over time by boosting the supply of quality housing in communities across the country. President Biden’s plan involves creating and preserving hundreds of thousands of affordable housing units in the next three years to increase the amount of affordable housing available. 

Over the weekend, people across the country mobilized for “Bans Off Our Bodies” rallies and marches as part of a nationwide day of action calling out Republicans’ radical, anti-choice agenda and highlighting what’s at stake this November.
