It’s been about a month since the American Rescue Plan was passed, and it is turning the game around! For those of you who don’t know, the ARP/covid-19 stimulus package dedicated $350B for states, cities, and towns to bring back the economy. What kind of positive impacts is it having?? $1400 for MUCH-needed stimulus check to support working-class peoples; $176B for vaccination plan—so life can go back to normal!; aid for restaurants, bars, and small businesses so we can keep eating and shopping; support for safe streets and public transit (especially with all the hate crimes!); expanded unemployment benefits—too many have lost jobs during the pandemic; reduces child poverty by half, because all children deserve a future.
