One year ago, Bryan Steil voted against the American Rescue Plan, an historic effort that uplifted tens of millions of families, distributed life-saving vaccines to hundreds of millions of people, helped open nearly 100% of schools, and powered the fastest recovery of any advanced economy in the world.

Despite House Republicans’ efforts to rewrite history, not a single one voted for the American Rescue Plan – including Steil.

Here’s just a few of the major accomplishments the American Rescue Plan helped deliver this past year – and Steil voted to block:

  • The greatest year of job creation in American history as 7.4 million Americans got back to work since President Biden was elected

  • The lowest rate of people on unemployment insurance since 1970 – more than 50 years

  • The Child Tax Credit reached a record 651,000 families including over 1.1 million children in Wisconsin

  • The Earned Income Tax Credit was tripled, providing significant relief to 320,000 workers in Wisconsin without dependent children

  • More Americans are saving money on health care thanks to expanded access through the ACA

  • Nearly 100% of schools are open for in-person learning

  • 2,091 small restaurants and bars in Wisconsin stayed open thanks to relief from the Restaurant Revitalization Fund

  • More than 34,000 cities, towns, and counties, saved jobs and prevented layoffs and furloughs thanks to funding for state and local governments

DCCC Spokesperson Elena Kuhn:

“The economy is stronger and working families are better off today than they were a year ago, thanks to ARP and no thanks to Bryan Steil. Voters will know that when given the opportunity, Steil voted against them.”
