Former Congressman Hill: “It’s become clear the Indiana Republican Party will treat the American Rescue Plan the exact same way they treated the Affordable Care Act, and this very fact is why Democrats across Indiana must go on offense…”
INDIANAPOLIS – Yesterday, Baron Hill (former U.S. Congressman) and Shelli Yoder (State Senator – District 40) embarked on a southern swing of the Indiana Democratic Party’s American Rescue Plan Tour, the statewide campaign to help deliver the good news about President Joe Biden and the Democrats’ COVID-19 relief package and how it’s helping all of Indiana’s 92 counties and its communities put the pandemic firmly in the rearview mirror.
“It’s an honor to join the Indiana Democratic Party for its American Rescue Plan, because our country is at a crossroads and it appears that only one political party – the Democratic Party – is focused on building a better future for Indiana and Hoosier families,” said Baron Hill, former U.S. Congressman for Indiana’s Ninth District. “It’s become clear the Indiana Republican Party will treat the American Rescue Plan the exact same way they treated the Affordable Care Act, and this very fact is why Democrats across Indiana must go on offense and talk about the good news the Rescue Plan is bringing to our families and communities across the state.”

Meeting with Hoosiers in Clark, Jackson, and Johnson Counties, Hill and Yoder also shared with Hoosiers how not one Indiana Republican elected official voted to support the Rescue Plan despite the law delivering $5.8 billion in relief to the state, Indiana’s schools receiving $2 billion in aid, and more than $250 million being used to expand broadband internet access across Indiana.
The American Rescue Plan Tour will specify just how the Rescue Plan is providing a direct contribution to all of Indiana’s 92 counties – including for Clark, Jackson, and Johnson Counties. Hoosiers can check out the Indiana Democratic Party’s “American Rescue Plan: How It Benefits You” website where voters can find out how the law is helping their families put COVID-19 in the rearview mirror.
