Today, following the House vote to advance President Biden’s historic Build Back Better framework, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia, released the following statement:
“President Biden and Democrats are on the precipice of passing a historic agenda that will create millions of good-paying jobs, expand access to health care, lower costs, and cut taxes for millions of middle-class families across Georgia — all without raising taxes a single cent for Georgians earning under $400,000 a year. This framework is overwhelmingly popular and will fundamentally transform the lives of millions of Georgians across this state for the better.
“Because of Democratic leadership, childhood poverty will be cut in half, housing costs will be reduced, America will take a huge step toward addressing the climate crisis, families will be able to afford child care, and small businesses will have the resources they need to get through this pandemic and thrive. While Georgia Republicans go to bat for corporations and the ultra-wealthy, Democrats are moving forwards with the Build Back Better framework to help everyday Georgians get back on track, reward work not wealth, and build a fair economy that works for everyone.”
The Build Back Better framework will deliver for Georgia by:
