Pocan Applauds House Passage of Budget Resolution

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) issued the following statement after House passage of the $3.5 trillion budget resolution that will shape the United States economy for years to come:

“Today is a great day. Historians will look at today’s vote as a pivotal point in American history. One that forever changed the trajectory American values. Today we put workers, families, and our nation’s future first. While this is just the first step in strengthening the social safety net, it shows that elections matter. This will be a long process, but one that I am hopeful that will result in expanding the child tax break for years to come, free Pre-K to 3- and 4-year-olds, free community college, paid family leave for all, a reinvestment in the care economy, a commitment towards fighting climate change, and citizenship for dreamers. This investment in America will make our country safer, healthier, greener, and better for all.”
