The United States reached a major milestone this weekend with 50% of the U.S. population between ages 50 and 64 having now received at least their first vaccine shot.
This enormous achievement was made possible by the Biden Administration and the American Rescue Plan -- which every Senate Democrat voted for and every single GOP senator opposed.
Reminder: every Republican Senator is on the record voting against a relief package that has:
Delivered $1,400 direct relief checks
Ramped up access to vaccines and testing
Provided additional local funding to help schools safely reopen
Sent critical aid to state and local governments to help keep first responders on the job
Extended emergency unemployment insurance
Boosted critical small business assistance
