CHAIRMAN JEFFRIES STATEMENT OF SUPPORT FOR PRESIDENT BIDEN'S BUILD BACK BETTER FRAMEWORK
WASHINGTON, DC – Following President Biden’s meeting with the House Democratic Caucus, Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) released the following statement:
“President Biden and House Democrats’ vision for the American people is realized in the Build Back Better Framework. Under President Biden’s leadership, we will deliver lower health care costs for millions of Americans and expand access to affordable, quality coverage. We will create good-paying jobs by fixing our crumbling bridges, roads, tunnels, airports and mass transit systems.
The Build Back Better Framework outlines how we will strengthen low-income, middle-class and working families through an enhanced and expanded Child Tax Credit, helping pay for their basic needs like food, housing and utilities. We will expand access to universal pre-K for three and four-year-old children. We will confront the climate crisis with the fierce urgency of now by making the largest federal investment ever in combatting climate change. The Build Back Better Framework also includes a robust investment in our nation’s affordable housing.
Together, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and Build Back Better Act are nothing short of transformative. That is why I support a timely vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill and, through trust in our President, am confident in his ability to get the fully-paid-for Build Back Better Act across the finish line very soon.”
