The Build Back better Act is crucial for our economy, environment, and future of our children. It will reduce pollution and create good jobs. It is also the most ambitious climate- and environmental justice initiative in American history. This makes it imperative that the Senate passes this legislation.
We are in a race to not only limit the devastating effects of climate change but also to build an American economy that is stronger. We need the Build Back better Act investments if we want win the competition with China and Europe for jobs of the future, reduce pollution and stabilize our climate.
The Build Back better Act is a fiscally responsible way to invest in our future. Moodys and other independent analysts have confirmed that Build Back Better will reduce long-term inflation. It is the most fiscally responsible major legislation that Congress has seen in recent years.
We will continue to fight for the passage of the Build back Better Act. We must pass the Build Back Better Act for American families who are in desperate need of relief and want a better future.
- Elizabeth Gore, Senior Vice-President, Political Affairs
