PROTECTING THE LEAST OF THESE
AMERICAN FAMILIES RESCUE PLAN
TAKING CARE OF AMERICAN CHILDREN
1-in-7 American children go hungry each day. That’s just over 10 million children with empty bellies through no fault of their own.
As a nation founded and sustained by Christian values, it’s up to us to take up Jesus’ call to help these children as the sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father.
That’s why Republicans and Democrats have come together to make sure our children are fed. The bipartisan American Families Rescue Plan will cut childhood poverty in half, making sure innocent American children have their daily meals.
Because of who God is and the many blessings he has bestowed upon us as a nation, we are able to answer our call as Christians to stand up for the weak and the innocent like never before. Ending childhood poverty in America can be the legacy of our generation—the legacy we carry with us into the pearly gates of heaven.
PREPARING AMERICANS FOR GOOD, HONEST WORK
As common sense citizens, we also know that it is better to teach a man to fish than to make him keep returning to beg for his breakfast.
That’s why the American Families Rescue Plan includes access to community college for all American citizens. Rather than pushing for 4-year liberal arts degrees that most Americans don’t want and can’t afford, the bi-partisan plan gives every American a fair shot at finding good, honest work.
Community colleges train our nurses, electricians, mechanics, police officers, and other respectable professions. It’s how Americans move from hourly wages to a job that lets them raise a family and serve their community doing work that can’t be outsourced.
SUPPORTING PARENTS' DECISIONS ON WHAT'S BEST FOR THEIR KIDS
The American Rescue Plan recognizes that most Americans weren’t born with a silver spoon in their mouths, and that they need to work to make ends meet. So parents of young children now get an additional tax refund, paid monthly, to make good childcare more affordable.
Under this plan, parents decide what kind of care is best for their child--whether it is the church nursery school or a workplace or community program.
WHAT FAITH LEADERS ARE SAYING
REV. J.D. GREER
PRESIDENT OF THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION
"'Who is my neighbor?': Our neighbor is anyone around us who is in need. Our responsibility is to regard their needs as important as our own and be willing to do whatever it takes to lift them up."
"You pray for the hungry. Then you feed them. This is how prayer works."
"For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink...‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
"Do not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up."
