ICYMI: Gov. Holcomb and LG Crouch Buck INGOP, Praise American Rescue Plan’s READI and Broadband Investments
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, today released the following statement by executive director Lauren Ganapini after the U.S. unemployment rate fell to 3.9-percent under President Biden’s leadership:
“Today’s great news is yet another sign that President Joe Biden’s and Democrats’ economic plan is working. Under President Biden’s and Indiana Democrats’ leadership, the economy added over 6.4 million jobs in 2021 — the most in a single calendar year. Wages are up, everyone who wants a job can get one, and one of the fastest economic recoveries in history continues to power ahead.
This track record of success includes the state’s READI program, which is fully-funded by the American Rescue Plan. The Democrats’ READI efforts are so popular that even Republican Governor Eric Holcomb admitted just this week there’s a lot of ‘excitement’ with Hoosiers about these transformative investments.
“Americans are better off now than they were a year ago, but we know there is more work to do. Despite Republicans’ constant obstruction and INGOP Chairman Kyler Hupfer calling this economic agenda ‘socialism’, Democrats will not relent and will continue to pass the rest of President Biden’s agenda to lower costs for American families.”
Here’s a look at the economic progress our country has made thanks to President Biden and Democrats’ leadership:
