Today’s Action: Pass the American Rescue Plan – the vote is TODAY!

The House votes TODAY on President Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan – one of the largest, most progressive economic relief packages in our country’s history!

So what’s in it? (This list makes us VERY happy!)

  • Direct $1,400 payments to most Americans, plus $1400 per dependents
  • $300/week federal unemployment supplement through September
  • Waives federal income taxes on the first $10,200 of federal unemployment benefits
  • Boosts the child income tax credit (including for low-income families currently ineligible) AND anticipates next year’s tax credit with direct monthly checks to those families
  • Expands the earned-income tax credit for workers without children
  • Robust funding for vaccine distribution, testing, and contact tracing
  • $350 billion for state/local/tribal governments and $130 billion for schools
  • Subsidies for the Affordable Care Act and COBRA, making quality health insurance plans much more affordable for middle class families who have lost work
  • …and more!

Now, we just need to make sure it passes with all of this intact.

The vote in the House is TODAY! Call (202.224.3121) your Representative and tell them to keep the American Rescue Plan as strong as possible – and then vote YES!

Last week in the Senate, every single Republican voted against this bill. They do not have their voters’ best interests in mind, do not want to support struggling workers and families as the national death toll shoots past 525,000. House Republicans must hear from us that the Senate GOP’s neglect is NOT OKAY, and we expect their support of the bill, no funny business to weaken the bill.

House Democrats have the majority – but the margin is tight. Even a handful of Democrats detracting from the party will sink it. They, too, must hear from us that we are looking for their vote in favor, with no capitulation to attempts to water it down.

Don’t delay, the vote is today! Call (202.224.3121) your Representative and urge them to pass the American Rescue Plan as-is – do not weaken it!
