America is on the move again, and today’s new GDP numbers put our economy back at pre-pandemic levels.
Make no mistake: this growth is no accident, it’s a direct result of our efforts to deliver economic relief to families, small businesses, and communities across the country.

Americans with disabilities voted in record numbers in 2020, but new state laws could discourage turnout moving forward.
Today, I met with advocates who are disabled to hear about their experiences casting their vote, and discuss protecting the right to vote. pic.twitter.com/lZDa4KIPEf

ELI5: Why doesn’t the Board just release the rankings from every ballot in a machine-readable form, so every election nerd across the world can run the numbers. This is not rocket science. And the code to do it is free software. https://t.co/gHRYhQWAF8

Some interesting numbers here:
12% of the unemployed say their unemployment checks are why they’re delaying searching for a job
20% say they’re delaying because of childcare-related issues
25% say they’re waiting for vaccination rates to climbhttps://t.co/oTfI4sA92H

34% of Black households
39% of Latino households
47% of Native American households
Those are the numbers of American households lacking a standard broadband connection. All in all, 23% of the country lacks access. That’s unacceptable in a 21st century economy. Let’s fix it.

We are in the lead! The numbers show a tight race against the politics of the past, but a clear path to reclaiming our government and making it work for the people and families of New York. Please vote to keep the momentum going! https://t.co/QS6n86rEQF pic.twitter.com/sttgDqmkkM
