Press Release

MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting on the GOP's Counteroffer to President Biden's Infrastructure Plan

WASHINGTON -

Today, Rahna Epting, the executive director of MoveOn, released the following statement after Senators Capito, Toomey, Barrasso and Blunt released their own version of an infrastructure plan:

“Another day, another offer from Republicans that falls well short of meeting the needs of this moment. This is a classic Washington trick—attempt to run out the clock with budgetary gimmicks and inadequate counter offers and call it bipartisanship. It is time Democrats end this game.

“We cannot afford to waste any more time on this Republican scheme—families need our help now. Democrats need to move on for the people and work to make the American Jobs Plan and the American Families Plan a reality for all.”

MoveOn is where millions mobilize for a better society—one where everyone can thrive. Whether it’s supporting a candidate, passing legislation, or changing our culture, MoveOn members are committed to an inclusive and progressive future. We envision a world marked by equality, sustainability, justice, and love. And we mobilize together to achieve it.
