6 Months Later, Georgia is Building Back Better Thanks to President Biden

July 20, 2021

Today marks the six-month anniversary of President Biden and Vice President Harris taking office, and thanks to their historic agenda, Democrats are delivering for Georgia families and building back better than ever. 

With checks in pockets, shots in arms, and huge tax cuts for middle-class families, hardworking Georgians are better off than they were six months ago and optimistic about the future. With results like that, it’s no wonder nearly 60% of Americans approve of President Biden’s job in office and support his plans to continue building our country back better.

“After just six months in office, economic growth is up, unemployment is down, and Georgia is roaring back thanks to President Biden and Democrats’ leadership,” said Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “With the American Rescue Plan and its relief for working families, President Biden is delivering on his promises to Georgians. Despite Brian Kemp and Georgia Republicans’ best efforts to block progress, Democrats are going to continue tackling the issues Americans care most about, from rebuilding America’s transportation infrastructure and reducing the cost of child care to protecting the sacred right to vote.”

Here’s a look at just a few of President Biden and Democrats’ accomplishments since taking office:

  • COVID-19: The Biden-Harris administration has administered more than 315 million shots, a feat that has helped cut COVID-19 deaths by 92 percent since January. 
  • Tax Cuts: President Biden cut taxes for middle-class families with children, so that eligible families are now receiving up to a $3,600 tax credit per child.
  • American Rescue Plan: President Biden and Democrats passed the American Rescue Plan to help fund vaccine deployment and economic rescue payments, which many called “the most significant legislation” in a generation. Experts say it will cut child poverty in half by next year.
  • Checks: The Biden-Harris administration has delivered $1,400 checks to more than 169 million Americans. 
  • Jobs: The U.S. economy added more than three million jobs since President Biden took office, going from creating 60,000 jobs per month to 60,000 jobs every three days. 2021 is expected to be the strongest year for the economy in possibly seven decades.
  • Infrastructure: President Biden and Democrats worked across the aisle and delivered on a campaign promise to secure a historic infrastructure deal that, if passed, will create good-paying union jobs and position the United States to win the 21st century. 
  • Health Care: The Biden-Harris administration cut premiums for those who get health coverage from the Affordable Care Act; four in five now can get plans for $10/month. More than two million people have signed up for coverage during special enrollment.
