IN THE STATES: President Biden’s Build Back Better Agenda Dealing Working People Back in
September 17, 2021
|Yesterday, President Biden laid out what’s at stake for the future of our economy: Do we keep an economy that serves the wealthiest and biggest corporations – or finally give middle class families a fair shot? Local news outlets covered the speech, noting that President Biden’s economic plan would “create jobs, grow the economy and lessen inflation…It would lower the cost of day care and help people go back to work, lower health care premiums for millions of families, lower prescription drug costs, and extend a tax cut for families with kids.”
And this week, parents across the country received their third direct payment through the Child Tax Credit, giving millions of families yet another boost to their bank accounts. As Georgia father of three and Cobb County School Board Member, Tre Hutchins said, “Thanks to President Biden and Democrats, families that need help the most are getting it right in their bank accounts, and it’s building our economy back better from the bottom up and the middle out.”
In case you missed it…On Tuesday, by a nearly 2-to-1 margin, the effort to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom failed — reaffirming voters’ support for President Biden, Governor Newsom and Democrats’ leadership in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic. Defeating the pandemic and getting our economy back on track remains voters’ top priority in California and across the country, and Republicans’ failure to address either is a major vulnerability heading into the 2021 and 2022 elections. DNC, DCCC, and DGA Chairs discussed this during a joint press call this week.
