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.”
