Many of our priorities are included in the Build Back Better Act being prepared by House Committees right now. But we have more work to do!
We need to fight to maintain those critical items such as paid leave and the expanded Child Tax Credit—and fight for even more of our shared agenda, such as home and community based care for the aging and people with disabilities, and allow the federal government to negotiate lower Medicare and private insurance drug prices.
We’re so close to the finish line! With the House of Representatives likely voting by September 27th on this entire package, we must make sure every member of Congress hears from us NOW, demanding these critical components remain intact and pass!
Here are some of the provisions that we have learned are included in the historic Build Back Better Act, which makes essential investments in people, families and communities.
Now, it’s up to our national grassroots coalition to make sure these provisions remain intact as this budget emerges from the House.
Together, we must remind wavering Democrats that we can afford investments in working people, the aging, children, the sick and the poor when we finally ask corporations and the wealthy to pay their fair share.
