159 ADVOCACY GROUPS PUSH TO ADVANCE BUILD BACK BETTER POLICIES

65% of Voters, including 64% of Independents, Support Build Back Better

WASHINGTON, DC — A coalition of more than 159 groups released a joint statement today calling for Congress to join the President in advancing the priorities in Build Back Better.

“While extraordinary progress has been made with the American Rescue Plan and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, we all agree that more can, and should, be done. Families continue to face challenges that necessitate bold action. The policies President Biden has outlined in the Build Back Better Act will make historic investments to cut costs for families and create millions of good-paying jobs, fully paid for by making sure the wealthy and corporations pay their fair share of taxes.

“The principles outlined by President Biden remain popular with the American people and would be a historic investment in American families. We urge our elected leaders to come together with the President, reach consensus on a final package, and pass the Build Back Better Act into law.”
