DNC Chair Harrison: “It was Democrats who listened to the American people, it was Democrats who voted for the [American Rescue Plan], it was Democrats who actually got the money into the pockets of the people….”
As President Joe Biden approaches his 100th day in office, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison kicked off a virtual press tour last week across several swing states to highlight how the President and Democrats across the country are delivering for the American people and getting things back on track. From Florida to Wisconsin, Chair Harrison spoke about the importance of the American Rescue Plan and how it has delivered real, tangible results to those who need it most. With effective distribution of vaccines and direct aid to millions, 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, thanks to President Biden and Democrats.

NBC 6: “Well listen, the legislation that [President Biden’s] approved has broad bipartisan support in this country. If you take a look at the polling for his American Rescue Plan, 70 percent of the American people — [plurality] of Republicans, majority of Democrats — all support this legislation. Now, what needs to happen is that the Republicans in Congress need to put their finger on the pulse of the American people and understand that the American people right now want action.”
WSB-TV: “The American people needed these resources and Joe Biden delivered for the American people,” Harrison said.
Elliot also spoke with Harrison about Georgia’s controversial new voting law — a law he says will make it more difficult for people to vote.
“Why then, here in this country, Republicans are doing everything that they can in order to make it more difficult for other people to exercise their right to vote,” Harrison said.

“It was Democrats who listened to the American people, it was Democrats who voted for the legislation, it was Democrats who actually got the money into the pockets of the people of Wisconsin, and so I hope folks will keep that in mind as they move forward and think about their choices in 2022.”
