Jewish Dems Welcome Biden’s American Jobs Plan

March 31, 2021

WASHINGTON – With help already underway for those dealing with the economic impact of the pandemic, Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) CEO Halie Soifer released the following statement applauding President Biden’s American Jobs Plan:

“President Biden is delivering for the American people, and that starts with protecting lives and livelihoods amid an unprecedented pandemic and growing economic inequality. The American Rescue Plan paved the way to begin our nation’s recovery and now, the American Jobs Plan will continue to bring relief to those most impacted by COVID-19 and ensure our government and economy work for everyone. 

“Now is the time for a once-in-a-century investment to rebuild the middle class, address economic inequality, transition to a clean energy economy, and deliver justice for Americans who have been systemically excluded from our economy, including communities of color and rural communities. This American Jobs Plan is the historic investment America needs, and we call on Congress to swiftly take action to further this important initiative and send it back to President Biden’s desk, where this idea began.”
