Concord, N.H. -- Yesterday marked the six-month anniversary of President Biden taking office and, thanks to his historic agenda, Democrats are delivering for Granite Staters and building back better than ever. In response, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
“After Granite Staters overwhelmingly voted to send President Biden to Washington, America is back on track. While Republicans like Chris Sununu and Mitch McConnell have spent the last six months doing everything they can to block relief for Granite Staters, Democrats are getting checks in pockets, shots in arms, and huge middle-class tax cuts to Granite State families. Democrats will continue to build on the progress that has been made over the past six months and we’re optimistic about all that can be accomplished together.”
COVID-19: The Biden administration has administered more than 338 315 million shots, a feat that has helped cut COVID-19 deaths by 92 percent since January.
Tax Cuts: President Biden cut taxes for middle-class families with children, so that eligible families are now receiving up to a $3,600 tax credit per child.
American Rescue Plan: President Biden and Democrats passed the American Rescue Plan to help fund vaccine deployment and economic rescue payments, which many called “the most significant legislation” in a generation. Experts say it will cut child poverty in half by next year.
Jobs: The U.S. economy added more than three million jobs since President Biden took office, going from creating 60,000 jobs per month to 60,000 jobs every three days. 2021 is expected to be the strongest year for the economy in possibly seven decades.
Infrastructure: President Biden and Democrats worked across the aisle and delivered on a campaign promise to secure a historic infrastructure deal that if passed, will create good-paying union jobs and position the United States to win the 21st century.
Health Care: The Biden administration cut premiums for those who get health coverage from the Affordable Care Act; four in five now can get plans for $10/month. More than two million people have signed up for coverage during special enrollment.
