People’s Action on House Passage of President Biden’s Build Back Better Act: Finish the Job

WASHINGTON -

People’s Action today released the following statement by Campaigns Director Sondra Youdelman after House Democrats passed President Biden’s Build Back Better Act:

“People’s Action applauds the House passage of the Build Back Better Act, and now it’s the Senate’s turn to keep their end of the bargain. There is no time to waste for the millions of people who put Democrats in office and expect us to fight for them.

“President Biden and Majority Leader Schumer must ensure that Democrats pass the Build Back Better Act–without further cuts–immediately. This will be Democrats’ legacy going into the 2022 midterms. We need to protect it.”

People's Action builds the power of poor and working people, in rural, suburban, and urban areas to win change through issue campaigns and elections.
