Help Is On the Way for Millions of Americans Thanks to Democrats in Congress

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued a statement regarding the final passage of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan:

“Thanks to Democrats in the House and Senate, help is on the way to hundreds of millions of Americans in the midst of this pandemic. This historic legislation will not only provide Americans with $1,400 survival checks, but it will also reduce homelessness, child poverty, and child hunger; provide much-needed relief for struggling families and renters; provide more funding for unemployment; fund more vaccines across the country; and help small businesses and local governments in need. This stimulus package would not have been possible without Democratic leadership and the Democratic majority in both the House and Senate. I thank President Biden for his commitment to families across the United States and for meeting this moment with much-needed and historic action.”
