IN THE NEWS

  • President Biden’s economic plan is working. According to economists, “The U.S. is the only major country in which expectations for 2025 GDP among Wall Street forecasters are currently higher than they were in January 2020.” The American economy is looking up — if Congress can pass the American Jobs Plan, they can help cement this pattern of progress.
  • Happy Pride, pass the Equality Act! 🏳️‍🌈 Yesterday marked the official start of Pride Month, a time for celebration, remembrance, and political action. Equality voters have rallied around the Equality Act, landmark legislation that would provide LGBTQ Americans with key protections — but a lack of Republican support has led to a stalemate in Congress. It’s time to call on your senator to build on the momentum of Pride and pass this legislation.
  • ‘There’s an awakening going on in this country.’ President Biden made history yesterday as the first U.S. president to visit Tulsa and recognize the 1921 race massacre, an attack that killed as many as 300 Black Americans and has since been suppressed by American history books. Biden promised survivors: “Now your story will be known in full view.”
  • Republican lawmakers push to remove caregiver funding from the American Jobs Plan. Biden is meeting with senators again today to discuss his existing plan, which would invest $400 billion into the home care industry — a measure that many legislators on the other side of the aisle oppose. But one Arizonan makes her case for why Biden must hold the line on caregiving infrastructure: “Without caregivers, women in the family are expected to leave their jobs and take care of their loves ones full time.”
