American Rescue Plan: How it Benefits You
President Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan is delivering much-needed relief to Hoosier families while helping Indiana put COVID-19 in the rearview mirror. However, according to polling, rural and young Hoosiers have heard the least about the Rescue Plan and what it delivers for them.
The Indiana Democratic Party is here to solve this problem. This webpage is a one-stop shop about the American Rescue Plan, the support it has from American voters, and how it’s directly helping Indiana and Hoosier families build back better from the pandemic. Here’s how:
The Support Behind the American Rescue Plan
Polling makes it clear: Americans love the American Rescue Plan and the direct relief it’s providing to them.
More than 70-percent of American voters – including many Hoosiers – approve of the Rescue Plan. This also includes about 47-percent of Republicans, ensuring the COVID-19 stimulus package has bipartisan support.
With this kind of support from Hoosier voters, it is essential for Democrats and supporters of President Joe Biden to celebrate the American Rescue Plan at every opportunity.
What the Rescue Plan Does for Indiana
#1: Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, more than 91-percent of all Hoosier adults received a $1,400 relief check to help make ends meet during the pandemic.
