What Republicans don't get: Biden's oversized COVID relief package is a new start for America

Finally, in Joe Biden, we have a president who cares.

“I know it’s been hard. I truly know,” he said, reflecting on a year of loss of both life and living. “I will not relent until we beat this virus, but I need you, the American people. I need you. I need every American to do their part, and that’s not hyperbole.”

Biden’s primetime address, his first, came hours after he signed a $1.9 trillion COVID relief law, historic in its breadth and cost, that represents the largest anti-poverty package in generations. It includes direct assistance to most Americans and an expanded Child Tax Credit that could cut child poverty in half, as well as billions for towns, schools and small businesses. And most importantly, it will expedite access to the COVID-19 vaccines that are so desperately needed to save lives and bring this pandemic, finally, to its knees.
