Linda is a small-town Iowan and a caregiver for her 75-year-old twin brother who has dementia. Linda takes pride in caring for her brother: washing his laundry, getting his groceries, and driving him to his doctor's appointments. She's thankful that financial relief in President Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act went straight to working families like hers. We're all dealing with wealthy corporations price gouging the cost of groceries and gas these days. For Linda, the extra funds were a real relief. Linda's story is similar to so many Iowans who are trying to take care of their families. Help us share her story and show that President Biden is working to help working families in Iowa.

Susie is a retired educator who understands that in Iowa we work hard and put our kids first, but that it's getting tougher as state politicians turn education into a wedge issue. Iowans like Susie just want our kids to succeed, and she is grateful for President Biden’s Rescue Plan that delivered funds to get the results we need - more counselors and tutors to support our kids and supplies to keep schools clean and kids safe.
