While President Biden Delivers for Working Families, Republicans Stand With Wall Street
June 14, 2022
President Biden has long said: “The middle class is the backbone of America,” and since taking office he’s held true to that. President Biden has taken critical action to help lower costs for working families and get Americans back to work, while Republicans have protected the ultra-wealthy and even put forward a proposal that included tax increases on the middle class.
Without a single vote from Republicans, President Biden and Democrats delivered the historic American Rescue Plan that spurred our historic economic recovery and helped get millions of Americans back to work.
CNBC: “Payrolls rose 390,000 in May, better than expected as companies keep hiring”
Washington Post: “The U.S. economy added 390,000 jobs in May, a strong showing after a year of unprecedented growth.”
Moody’s Analytics: “The ARP is responsible for adding well over 4 million more jobs in 2021, and the economy is currently on track to recovering all the jobs lost in the pandemic by the second quarter of this year.”
On the other hand, Republican lawmakers continue to push an agenda that could end the Security and Medicare guarantee, which the American people cannot afford.
Politico: “Lindsey’s pledge: If Republicans regain control of the Senate following the midterms, the current Senate Budget ranking member is laying the groundwork: ‘Entitlement reform is a must for us to not become Greece.’”
The American Independent: “Rick Scott says letting Social Security and Medicare laws expire will ‘preserve’ them”
UpNorth News: “Ron Johnson says GOP plan to raise taxes, eliminate social security ‘a positive thing’”
While President Biden is fighting to make sure the ultra-wealthy pay their fair share, Republicans have laid out their plan to make the Trump tax cuts permanent for billionaires and the ultra-wealthy.
