The American Rescue Plan passed Congress and recieved the standard signature from the president last week. Americans should know that Democrats passed the $1.9 trillion package with zero bipartisan support since neither the House or Senate are controlled by Republicans.
Democrats are just getting started, however. They intend to milk and extend their power in the federal government for as long as possible. Therefore, this explains why Democrats are looking to pass one partisan bill after the other as quickly as possible.
The expensiveness of the American Rescue Plan is facing criticism, as is the reality that merely 9% of the package goes towards COVID-19 relief. In order to portray the American Rescue Plan as this great and historic piece of legslation, the White House is kicking off the “Help is Here” tour, according to Newsmax.
A Closer Look at the Help is Here Tour
In a nutshell, the Help is Here tour will entail Democrats going across the country and then telling the American people how awesome the American Rescue Plan is. President Biden, Vice President Harris, First Lady Jill Biden, and others will be part of the tour starting this week.
Last week was a big week for our Administration, we:
– Passed the American Rescue Plan
– Began sending out stimulus checks
– Announced every adult will be eligible for a vaccine by May 1
– Averaged more than 2 million vaccinations per day

Americans in Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Georgia can expect Democrats on the Help is Here tour to make an appearance in their states.
Each of these states has a congressional Senate race coming up next year; each of these races will be pivotal and play a major role in whether or not the Biden administration has free rein in Congress or a healthy checks-and-balances from a GOP-controlled Senate.
The Chess Move for 2022 Midterms
Democrats on the Help is Here tour are going to areas in the hopes of solidifying support and maintaining their congressional majorities.
The current Democrat majorities in Congress are historically small. If Republicans regain the majority in even one of two congressional chambers, it’s essentially game over for the Biden administration.
The American Rescue Plan’s direct payments have begun going out. Help is here.

Biden and Democrat lawmakers will no longer be able to pass whatever they want and openly profess that they don’t need support from Republicans. Ultimately, the 2022 midterm races across the nation will set the tone for the second half of Biden’s term in the White House.
