Someone Should Rescue House Republicans from American Rescue Plan Front Pages

ARP Rescues Local Governments in Republican Congressional Districts

Republicans are desperately trying to change the subject, but American Rescue Plan relief is front page news across Republican-held congressional districts.

Minority Leader McCarthy convinced House Republicans to vote unanimously against getting vaccines in arms, money in pockets, children back in school safely, and people back in jobs.  

Republicans will have a hard time running away from that vote with American Rescue Plan headlines splashed across the front pages of newspapers across their districts.
