Press Release

Statement by Rahna Epting, Executive Director of MoveOn, on Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

WASHINGTON -

“The bipartisan deal must only be the start. And let’s be clear, it is not even remotely sufficient in and of itself. It now must be paired with a robust reconciliation package that meets the size and scope of the challenges that too many Americans face. Now that this deal has been made, Democrats can not wait any longer, or allow any additional Republican obstruction, and must move forward with urgency on a bill that will invest in good paying union jobs, clean energy jobs, the care infrastructure that so many people depend on, and a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS holders, and essential workers like farmworkers. And we must invest in working families by making sure the ultra-wealthy and tax-dodging corporations pay their fair share.

 

“Let’s be clear, one bill can not pass without the other. This is a package deal. And a deal that the American people can not afford to wait any longer for.”
