This evening, Protect Our Care hosted a Lite-Brite display outside of the White House commemorating the one-year anniversary of the American Rescue Plan. On March 11, 2021 President Biden signed the historic American Rescue Plan into law, which has been the cornerstone of the American COVID-19 recovery, providing funding for vaccination distribution, delivering direct relief to families, supplying resources to keep schools and businesses open, and creating measures to make health care more affordable than ever before.
Earlier this week, Protect Our Care released a new report outlining the impact of the American Rescue Plan’s critical economic and health provisions. Over the past year, the law helped create more than 6 million jobs and led to record enrollment in affordable health coverage. Today, over 215 million Americans are fully vaccinated, with more getting vaccinated and boosted every day, leading to safer workplaces and communities. The lite-brite display comes as President Biden and Democrats in Congress are working to build on this progress and put more money in working families’ pockets by driving down prescription drug prices, lowering premiums, and further expanding access to affordable care.
