After President Trump’s Failed Leadership Led to 500K Dead, Millions Infected and Economic Turmoil, President Biden’s American Rescue Plan Puts Country on Clear Path Out of Crisis
Washington, DC – Protect Our Care is releasing a new TV ad today on the anniversary of the Coronavirus pandemic shutdown contrasting President Biden’s bold action to get direct relief to Americans, lower health care costs and get the economy back on track with the failures of the Trump administration.
The ad titled “One Year: Turning the Page,” compares the disastrous leadership of the Trump administration and Republicans, whose policies led to millions of cases and hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths, with the steady hand of President Biden, who, along with Democrats, are leading us out of this crisis.
“One year into the worst public health crisis in a generation, President Biden and Democrats in Congress are taking aggressive steps to end this pandemic by passing the American Rescue Plan and delivering direct relief, vaccines and health care benefits to Americans,” said Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach. “Elections matter and Americans are seeing the benefits of President Biden’s leadership. By electing President Biden and delivering Democrats the House and Senate, Americans made clear they were tired of the failed leadership of President Trump and Republicans who exacerbated this crisis by refusing to listen to experts, ignoring science and making reckless decisions that led to an economic disaster and hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths. With President Biden and Democrats in charge, we have leaders who are stepping up to get vaccines in people’s arms, cash into families’ pockets, reduce health care costs and kids back to school.”
“After a year of failed leadership and reckless policies, you would think Republicans in Congress would want to prove they actually wanted to help their constituents out of this crisis, but by voting against direct checks and health care benefits, it’s clear they do not,” said Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse. “Every single Republcian will now have to defend their vote against the American Rescue Plan and explain why they voted to extend the suffering caused by this year-long crisis instead of joining Democrats and President Biden to bring it to an end. Republicans in Congress were the worst enablers of the Trump Administration’s dangerous actions that exacerbated the pandemic, and they will continue to pay a heavy price for their failed leadership.”
The year we lost hugs.
Couldn’t visit our loved ones in nursing homes.
Watched as nearly 500,000 Americans were lost.
Because Donald Trump and Republicans refused to take this seriously… Ignored the scientists… And failed to combat the virus.
It didn’t have to be this way.
Thankfully, America is turning the page.
President Biden is getting this virus under control and getting America back on track.
… more shots in more arms…
schools and small businesses safely re-opening…
making health care more affordable for millions…
and jumpstarting our economy so we can build back better and stronger than before.
The fight isn’t over yet. But for the first time in a year, we’re on the right track.
And America is coming back.
Thank you President Biden.
