With the midterms just six days away, the Biden administration has a new plan to buy votes. The White House announced that the federal government would help pay power bills for qualifying low and moderate-income households.
The administration will provide $4.5 billion through the Department of Health and Human Services to “help lower heating costs for American families this winter,” per a press release from the White House. On top of paying for unpaid utility payments, it will also “help families make cost-effective home energy repairs to lower their heating and cooling bills.”

According to a report from the Energy Information Administration, the average household that uses natural gas to heat their home will spend $931 on power from October to March, marking a $206 increase since last year.
“President Biden’s economic plan focuses on lowering energy costs for American families so they can keep their homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer, especially as communities across the country cope with extreme temperatures and volatile weather fueled by climate change,” the White House remarked.
The Democratic Party is looking to turn things around with the midterms coming soon. The Republican Party is favored heavily to get the majority in the House and recent polling shows it is much more likely for the Republicans to also get the majority in the Senate.
