Senate Democrats Push Past Republican Obstruction, Deliver Historic Relief Package
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Senate Democrats passed the American Rescue Package, successfully overcoming unanimous Republican obstruction and advancing the much-needed relief measures to President Biden’s desk.
Tax March Executive Director Maura Quint responded to the bill’s passage:
“After weeks of negotiations, Senate Democrats realized Republican obstruction would not relent—even on a historically popular bill—so this is a hard-fought victory for the Democrats who pushed this rescue package forward. More importantly, this is a crucial victory for the millions of struggling Americans in dire need of relief.
With unemployment benefits set to expire in just days and millions of Americans out of work and without income, this package must be sent to President Biden’s desk swiftly. Between reading the 600-page bill text out loud and refusing to support overwhelmingly popular measures, congressional Republicans did all they could to delay this package’s passage into law—congressional Democrats cannot allow them to delay any further. It’s time to rescue the American people from this year-long disaster, and bulldoze past Republicans’ moral bankruptcy to deliver relief for all.”
