1. After 100 days in office, President Biden is getting our country back on track.
Thanks to the leadership of President Biden and Democrats, America is #BackOnTrack. Weekly unemployment claims fell last week to the lowest level since March of last year, when the pandemic began. Retail sales also soared well past expectations last month, thanks to the $1,400 stimulus checks that not a single Republican in Congress voted for.
With the effective distribution of vaccines and the aid in the American Rescue Plan, Americans across the country are beginning to go back to work, small businesses are able to keep their doors open, and Americans’ lives are beginning to return to normal.
The American people know that our country is back on track thanks to President Biden and Democrats, and no thanks to a single Republican in Congress.
2. While America is back on track, we are still on the road to recovery. President Biden’s American Jobs Plan is the critical next step.
This is the moment to reimagine and rebuild a new American economy. The American Jobs Plan will create millions of good-paying jobs, rebuild our country’s infrastructure, and position the United States to out-compete China.
This is a once-in-a-century capital investment in America to not only meet our current infrastructure needs – like rebuilding crumbling roads and bridges and making sure every American has access to broadband and clean water – but also investing in research and development, so that we can make 21st century products in the U.S. and sell them around the world.
3. From Governor Brian Kemp to Attorney General Chris Carr, Georgia Republicans are cementing their brand as the party of extremism and voter suppression.
Senate Bill 202, signed by Governor Kemp, is dangerous for our democracy and a slap in the face to Georgia’s civil rights legacy. It’s an insult to the memory of heroes like John Lewis, who risked their lives for the right to vote safely and easily.
Georgia Republicans’ egregious voter suppression campaign is also hurting our state economically, most recently in forcing the MLB to relocate its All-Star game due to nationwide fallout from the disastrous new Jim Crow law. Republicans, and no one else, own all the repercussions of SB 202.
Other state Republicans, like Attorney General Chris Carr, are facing backlash for their role in the January insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Though Republicans may try to hide their records, Georgia voters know them for what they really are – extremists who put politics ahead of democracy.
