2020 Election: Understanding Joe Biden's Economic Recovery Plan

Wednesday, October 14, 2020

Alright yall, the countdown to the biggest election of our lifetime is on, let's hit the streets. As we discussed, the most impactful way to sway voters is to inform them of Joe Biden's plans as that information is not making its way to people as quickly/memorably as Trump news. Today we're going to talk about the Biden Harris plan for economic recovery. Trump leads Biden in voters' confidence in the ability to revive the economy, but messaging around Biden's economic plan has been one of the most proven topics to move the needle for voters. I'll also be sharing graphics on Instagram that outline what's below in case that is easier to share.

How to have conversations about the 2020 election

These are intense times and if you have a pulse it's basically impossible to stay calm in these conversations. In my phone bank trainings we learned a helpful model called the LARC:
L- Listen ("If you could change something about the country what would it be?)
A - Acknowledge ("that sounds tough", "it sounds like ____")
R- Relate ("as someone who has ____, I also care about ____")
C - Connect ("I support Biden-Harris because they also share our concerns around _____ and have a plan for it")

Joe Biden's Economic Plan 

"Donald Trump says the economy is great because the stock market is up and wants to cut medicare, medicaid, and social security in order to fund more tax cuts for the rich. Joe Biden says a strong economy depends on a strong middle class and wants only the wealthiest 1% to pay higher taxes so we can expand health coverage, invest in clean energy and infrastructure, and create 5 million manufacturing and technology jobs."

Joe Biden will use the full powers of the Presidency to implement re-opening plans outlined by medical experts. This includes:
  • COVID testing capacity
  • Surge supplies to COVID hot spots
  • Contact tracing
  • PPE for healthcare workers 
  • Ensure healthcare facilities have the supplies they need such as ventilators
  • Protections for frontline workers
  • Bold action vs. arbitrary reopening dates

Joe Biden will work with Congress to ensure relief gets to the people who need it, fast. This includes:
  • Boosting unemployment benefits
  • $377 billion in immediate small business loans with accountability to ensure money actually goes to small businesses (and not *cough cough* Kanye)
  • Expediting aid to businesses who commit to helping workers stay employed through the crisis
  • Enforce real conditions and oversight on big corporations.

Joe Biden's plan includes financial relief for those who need it:
  • Families: Additional checks to families should conditions require.
  • Young people: Forgive a minimum of $10,000 per person of federal student loans.
  • Seniors and People with disabilities: Increase monthly Social Security checks by $200/month.
  • Working people: emergency paid sick leave to everyone who needs it
  • All people: Ensure no one has to pay out of pocket for COVID-19 testing, treatment, or vaccines.
