2021 Budget Resolution
The coronavirus pandemic and economic fallout are destroying lives and livelihoods across the country. The United States continues to set record high infection and death rates, and our economy has endured lows unseen since the Great Depression. Millions of Americans remain out of work, food insecurity is climbing, and our most vulnerable communities are being forced to bear the brunt of this crisis.
The American people cannot afford any more delays or lapses in critical unemployment assistance. As negotiations continue, the 2021 budget resolution will provide another option: using reconciliation to achieve the goals outlined in President Biden’s American Rescue Plan. This will ensure Congress can meet the needs of the American people and move our nation forward with or without Republican cooperation.
