August 12, 2021
Throughout the Month of August, Bus will Travel Across the Country to Highlight How Democrats are Delivering for Working Families
|Today, the Democratic National Committee’s “Build Back Better” bus tour kicked off in Alexandria, Virginia with Terry McAuliffe. During the stop, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison, McAuliffe and local leaders highlighted how President Biden and Democrats are delivering for the American people with the creation of more than four million new jobs, tax cuts for middle-class families, and lower health care costs.
“Thanks to President Biden and Democrats, America is building back better than ever, and the DNC is hitting the road to make sure everybody knows that the ‘D’ in Democrats stands for ‘deliver,’” said Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison. “Because of President Biden’s and Democrats’ leadership, jobs and wages are up, unemployment is down, and middle-class families are benefiting from a major tax cut. We know there is still work to be done and the DNC’s ‘Build Back Better’ bus tour will remind people across the country that it is Democrats who are delivering results for the American people — no thanks to Republicans.”
“Thanks to President Biden’s efforts, America and Virginia are building back stronger than before from this pandemic,” said Virginia Governor Candidate Terry McAuliffe. “The American Rescue plan is lifting up families and small businesses across the Commonwealth, investing in our schools, and providing vital funding for vaccine efforts. My opponent Glenn Youngkin, who has been endorsed by Donald Trump three times, opposes these efforts and has called them ‘unnecessary.’ Come November, I will make sure Glenn and his dangerous, Trumpian agenda don’t get anywhere near the Governor’s office.”
