From our North Carolina Democratic Party:
Less than 100 days after taking office, President Biden and Democrats secured a major and consequential victory: successfully passing the American Rescue Plan (ARP), a bold and historic legislative package that provided and continues to provide much-needed relief to millions of working people across the country. Today is the one-year anniversary of that victory!
Here are some additional facts about what Democrats delivered for working families in NC and across the country, in spite of unified Republican opposition:
Every North Carolina Republican in Congress, including our District 7 Representative David Rouzer, voted AGAINST the American Rescue Plan funding. They tried to keep $1,313,201,450 from NC constituents!
New data from the Department of Education shows that 10 North Carolina HBCUs received over $307 million from the historic relief bill! Reminder: every Republican voted AGAINST this funding.
Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, the number of North Carolinians with health insurance rose by 25% last year -- bringing that number up to 670,000! We know health care is a right, not a privilege, and we're taking action to make sure it’s accessible. Due to this investment, North Carolina families saved an average of $800 last year! That’s money for groceries, bills, & school supplies in your pocket.
As the midterms ramp up, Brunswick County Democrats are committed to building on the progress of the American Rescue Plan by electing Democrats up and down the ballot.
