Nat’l Economic Council Dir.: If We Pass the American Rescue Plan Now, We Could See 7.5 Million Jobs Created This Year
DEESE: "Well, I would just point to, you know, just one example of an independent analysis that was done of the American Rescue Plan by Moody’s. And what they said — what they found was that if we pass the American rescue plan now, we could see 7.5 million jobs created just this year, and we could see a return to full employment a full year ahead of what is projected if we don’t. So those are the stakes involved, and without this kind of decisive action, we’re going to have a much deeper economic hole, and that’s -- that's why we are so focused on making the case for a decisive action now."
