Series of Wins Highlight the Effectiveness of Democratic Leadership

‘The Democrats Are Really Delivering for the American People,’ Says HCDP Chair 

         
Houston — The past 11 days have been marked by a streak of accomplishments from Senate Democrats, President Joe Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris, who have worked tirelessly to deliver job growth, healthcare expansion, and economic improvement to our recovering nation. Despite continued health emergencies, global economic hardship, and staunch Republican opposition, Democrats buckled down to pass policies that will lower drug and energy costs, improve healthcare services for veterans, provide additional protections for a woman’s right to choose, and improve quality of life for millions of Americans.

HCDP Chair Odus Evbagharu highlighted the myriad Democratic accomplishments in a thread of tweets on Monday morning.

 “The Democrats are really delivering for the American people, and we are delivering in very diverse ways. We always have and always will,” he wrote.

"Our president did more to protect reproductive rights with an executive order that supports patients traveling out of state for abortions and other medical care, ensures health care providers comply with federal non-discrimination law, and promotes research and data collection on maternal health effect.

"In the last eleven days, we have seen Senate Democrats pass legislation that will reduce costs on health care, prescription drugs, and energy”, he said. “The Senate passed the bipartisan PACT Act, which expands healthcare and disability benefits for millions of veterans exposed to toxic burn pits."

Focusing on the recent economic accomplishments, Evbagharu noted, "Unemployment fell to 3.5 percent, matching the lowest level in 50 years. 

“Gas prices have dropped, and more than 500,000 jobs were added in July.

“The steadfast leadership of President Biden, Vice President Harris, Senator Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, and Senate Democrats as a whole is ensuring American lives are made better today than yesterday.”

These accomplishments highlight the fact that when we work together to put Democrats in office, things get done. Visit harrisdemocrats.org to get involved and learn more about the HCDP platform.
