Elmer Gantry would have been so proud of y’all!
85% of American households will get direct checks from the American Rescue Plan. For so many Americans, that means they can pay the rent. That means they can put food on the table.

A new analysis out today shows that the American Rescue Plan will dramatically reduce poverty. That’s what happens when Congress writes legislation focused on the needs of the working class, not the wealthy and huge corporations. Not complicated!
This week in Congress: Dems: Passed $1.9T COVID package to deliver stimulus checks (w/ dependents!), cut child poverty in half, extend $300 UI, prevent cuts in state + local services, largest-ever investment in Native communities, etc GOP: Took a week to read The Cat in the Hat
Every single adult in the US will be eligible for the vaccine starting May 1st. May 1st! We can do this. Please get your shot as soon as you can. I can’t wait to have friends and family over, see a show, and experience live music again. What are you most looking forward to?

My dad used to say, “Joey, I don’t expect the government to solve my problems. But I expect it to understand my problems.” Folks out there aren’t looking for a handout — they just need help. They’re in trouble through no fault of their own, and they need us to understand.
‘Biden says all American adults will be eligible for vaccination by May 1, says rollout ‘months ahead of schedule’, 12 Mar, 2021, RT.com, one outtake:
“Though Biden warned the pandemic is still “far from over,” he also suggested there is “a good chance” Americans will be able to safely gather in small groups to celebrate Independence Day this summer, saying it would “not only mark our independence as a nation, but we begin to mark our independence from this virus.” He nonetheless hedged his rosier prediction, warning that a lot could change between now and the holiday and that “things may get worse again.”
