NHDP Statement on the One Year Anniversary of the American Rescue Plan’s Passage

CONCORD, NH – To commemorate one year since the American Rescue Plan was signed into law, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley has released the following statement:


“One year ago today, President Biden signed a once-in-a-generation relief package to rescue our economy from the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to our Democratic federal delegation, New Hampshire received $1.5 billion in COVID relief funds to open our classrooms safely, keep struggling Granite Staters in their homes, expand broadband access across the state, get shots in arms, prevent at-risk students from dropping out of colleges and universities, and reduce health care costs, along with so much more. Just one year after President Biden and Democrats took the lead to get this relief package into states like New Hampshire, we’re seeing record job creation, an economy on the rise, and the page being turned on COVID-19.”


“Compare that to Republicans like Chris Sununu, who famously said he would have voted ‘No’ on the American Rescue Plan. Or, take Republicans in Washington, who have said they want to raise taxes on 26% of Granite Staters or raise health care costs and rip pre-existing condition protections by repealing the Affordable Care Act. The contrast couldn’t be clearer – while Democrats are fighting to lower costs for Granite State families, Republicans are openly talking about their agenda of higher health care premiums and higher taxes on seniors and retirees.”
