WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement after the House passed the Build Back Better Act, advancing President Biden’s agenda, and delivering a once-in-a-generation investment that benefits working families.
“This morning’s vote is why American voters put Democrats in charge. This transformational bill will help families across the country. Tens of millions of American families will get a tax break. It lowers the cost of childcare for parents and prescription drugs for seniors. It creates millions of jobs, many of which tackle climate change. And it’s paid for by the wealthy and corporations who have not paid their fair share of taxes. This wildly popular agenda that the American people will benefit from is one step closer to the finish line. I urge my colleagues in the Senate to get this bill done and send it to the President’s desk as soon as possible.”
The bill now goes to the Senate for their consideration.
