Today, President Biden announced the Build Back Better Framework that will rebuild the backbone of the country – the middle class – so that this time everyone comes along. It is a transformative investment in climate, care, and kids that will lower the costs of things families depend on like health care and child care, help people get back to work, and grow the economy. And, the framework will reduce the deficit, while ensuring that the super-wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share and can’t zero out or cheat on their tax bills — something the majority of Americans support.
Here’s a look at what state party leaders across the country are saying about President Biden’s historic Build Back Better Framework.
Democratic Party of Wisconsin: WisDems on President Biden Historic Build Back Better Framework
“President Biden campaigned on building our communities back better and investing in the working people who are the backbone of the American economy. With the Build Back Better Framework, President Biden is keeping that campaign promise by cutting costs for working families, investing in children and caregiving, expanding access to affordable health care, and tackling the climate crisis head on. It’s no wonder this framework is wildly popular with the American people.” – Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler
Pennsylvania Democratic Party: PA Dems Statement on the Historic Build Back Better Framework
“President Biden and Democrats prove time and again that they are the only party on the side of working families. Today’s agreement on the Build Back Better framework is a testament to that. The Build Back Better agenda will invest in child care, grow the economy in Pennsylvania, and lower costs for working families across the commonwealth. This is a historic win for Pennsylvanians.” – Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy Patton Mills
Arizona Democratic Party: ADP Statement on President Biden’s Build Back Better Agenda
“On the campaign trail last year, Joe Biden promised to strengthen the backbone of the country so that our government works for them — and while the work is not over, this framework keeps that promise to create millions of good-paying jobs, address the climate crisis head on, deliver tax cuts and lower costs for working families, and grow our economy from the bottom up and the middle out. While Republicans are busy helping massive corporations skirt their tax obligations and padding the pockets of their uber-wealthy campaign donors, Democrats are ready to pass this overwhelmingly popular agenda and invest in what matters most: children, working people, seniors, small businesses, and our planet.” – Arizona Democratic Party Chair Raquel Terán
Michigan Democratic Party: Michigan Democratic Party on President Biden’s Historic Build Back Better Framework
“President Biden campaigned on a promise that he would level the playing field for working families and make government work for working people again — and his Build Back Better framework will do just that. This transformative plan — supported by a large majority of Americans — will lower costs for families, create millions of new jobs, invest in children and caregiving for generations, and provide critical investments for addressing climate change.” – Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Alyssa Bradley
North Carolina Democratic Party: NCDP Statement on President Biden’s Build Back Better Framework
“Once again, Democrats are delivering results in a very big way. In North Carolina, President Biden’s Build Back Better framework will deliver on issues critical to the future of our state, including expanding access to affordable, high quality child care, providing support for HBCUs, and closing the Medicaid coverage gap. That’s why this agenda is so overwhelmingly popular. North Carolinians are exhausted by the Republican Party’s ideological bankruptcy and obsession with obstruction. They’re ready for leaders who get things done. – North Carolina Democratic Party Bobbie Richardson
Democratic Party of Georgia: Democratic Party of Georgia Statement on President Biden’s Build Back Better Framework
“President Biden and Democrats are on the precipice of passing a historic agenda that will create millions of good-paying jobs, expand access to affordable health care, lower costs and cut taxes for middle-class families, and significantly improve the lives of millions of Georgians — all without raising taxes a single cent for Georgians earning under $400,000 a year,” Scott Hogan, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia, said. “While Georgia Republicans go to bat for corporations and the ultra-wealthy, the Build Back Better framework is a reflection of President Biden and Democrats’ chief values – helping out everyday Americans, rewarding work not wealth, and building a fair economy that works for everyone.”
“Just like we’ve seen all year long from the Biden-Harris administration, when Democrats are in charge, we get the job done. Texas Democrats are excited to see President Biden moving forward with his Build Back Better Framework — a historic push to make life better for working families in Texas and across the country. This framework will provide two years of free preschool for every 3- and 4- year old in the country, help more seniors get quality, affordable health care, fight climate change to keep our communities safe from extreme weather, and put money back in the pockets of families and working Texans.” – Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa
