WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the Senate passing President Biden’s long-awaited American Rescue Plan to help workers and families, government watchdog Accountable.US released the following statement:

“Biden’s American Rescue Plan is a much-needed life preserver for the millions of Americans who have barely been able to keep their heads above water nearly a year into this crisis,” said Kyle Herrig, president of government watchdog Accountable.US. “But because the Americans struggling to make rent and keep food on the table aren’t the ones writing fat checks to line GOP senators’ campaign coffers, these lawmakers are only worried about delivering for those who are: wealthy corporate special interests. In moments like this, it’s clearer than ever that Senate Republicans are working only for their powerful donors, not the Americans they’re supposed to represent.”
