WASHINGTON, D.C. — A coalition of nearly 160 groups released a joint statement today calling for our “elected leaders to come together with the President, reach consensus on a final package, and pass the Build Back Better Act into law.”

Read the statement below: 

“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.”

About Invest in America

Invest In America is a national rapid response operation advocating for robust public investment to rescue the economy from the COVID crisis and create prosperity for the future, and to fight back against fear-mongers who use deficit concerns as a scapegoat to starve American communities and businesses of resources.

The operation consists of two components: Invest in America, the charitable and public education arm, which is a fiscally sponsored project of Economic Security Project funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and Economic Security Project co-chair Chris Hughes; and Invest in America Action, the advocacy and social welfare arm, which is a fiscally sponsored project of Economic Security Project Action funded by Chris Hughes and the Omidyar Network.
