President Biden and the 117th Congress have made significant legislative progress this past year and half.
- Congress has bounced back from the vicious January 6 attack.
- Passed a $1.9 trillion plan to help the economy recover from the Covid pandemic.
- Passed an Infrastructure Bill : $550 billion for roads, bridges, ports, broadband, and repair of Post Office balance sheet.
- Finally passed an anti-lynching law (named for Emmett Till)
- Passed a modest gun safety bill
- Passed the Chip Act to support US semi- conductor production and scientific research.
- Inflation Reduction Act: funding for clean energy, electric vehicle tax breaks, support for domestic manufacturing of batteries and solar panels, and pollution reduction cuts by 40%.
- Military and economic support for Ukraine
- NATO membership for Finland and Sweden
- Debt limit was raised and no federal default
- Veteran’s Health Bill to help veterans exposed to toxic burn pits.
- Record JOB creation.
This is significant action to lower prescription drug prices, provide renewable energy incentives, crack down on large, tax-dodging corporations, help US manufacturers and help our veterans!
Democrats are working hard to combat inflation, income inequality, too much gun violence, and persistent racism.

Worcester County Democrats believe in a society where all people can lead lives of dignity. We believe there should be no barriers to the opportunities of achieving a better life and that all Americans should have access to a sustainable livelihood, a sound education and a healthy environment.
Democrats in Worcester County are supported by four democratic organizations: Democratic Central Committee of Worcester County [DCCWC], Democratic Women’s Club [DWC], Democratic Club of Worcester County [DCWC], and Democratic Club of Ocean City/Berlin [DCOC/B]
These organizations are dedicated to providing information and support to registered democrats, unregistered voters, and democratic party candidates. The four organizations are partners committed to electing democrats at all levels of government. Together they raise funds for democratic candidates, hold candidate forums, and host social events where democrats can meet other democrats, candidates and office holders.
We believe that, working together, Worcester County Democrats can make a difference and we urge you to get involved by volunteering, joining a democratic club, and attending informational meetings and social events.
