Iowa Needs Build Back Better

folder_openNews, Uncategorized

Progress Iowa executive director Matt Sinovic issued the following statement calling on Iowa’s federal delegation to support the Build Back Better framework announced today:

“Iowa families and future generations need significant investments to fight climate change, improved access to childcare and early education to thrive. The Build Back Better plan announced today will help make those investments a reality, and Iowans need every member of our federal delegation to support it.”

“This plan is the largest expansion of public education in a century, will provide health coverage for millions of Americans, it makes the largest investment ever in fighting the climate crisis, it invests in our immigration system to make it more humane, and it provides real relief and support for working families including housing, school lunches, and higher education. It achieves all of this by tipping the scales back in favor of working families, making sure billionaires and corporations pay what they owe in taxes.”

“Every Iowan should be grateful to Cindy Axne for her support of the Build Back Better agenda, and it is long past time that Senators Grassley, Ernst, and the rest of Iowa’s delegation follow Axne’s lead and put their constituents first. Iowans deserve the opportunity for a better future, but this won’t be possible without the meaningful investments in our neighbors, friends, family, and fellow community members laid out in the plan announced today.”
