Greenpeace USA Response to the Biden Administration’s Infrastructure Counteroffer

WASHINGTON -

The following response to the Biden administration’s infrastructure counteroffer can be attributed to Greenpeace USA Climate Campaigner Ashley Thomson.

“We believe Joe Biden—we need to Build Back Better, not Build Back in Bad Faith. We need to build on and go bigger than the vision President Biden offered on the American Jobs Plan—not capitulate to bad-faith negotiations from Republicans that want us to compromise on justice, on climate, and on our futures. If “bipartisanship” means negotiating against a better future or negotiating against our communities, then we think the choice is obvious. 

Millions of voters have given the Biden administration a mandate to be bold and tackle the interlocking crises facing our country—the continued fallout from COVID-19, racial injustice, economic inequality, and the worsening climate crisis. Even more, our movement has given Washington the THRIVE Act, a blueprint for creating 15 million jobs while furthering racial and economic justice.”
