ICYMI: POTUS FIGHTS FOR WORKING PEOPLE WHILE MAGA PLAN CATERS TO ULTRA RICH AND BIG PHARMA
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Yesterday, President Biden traveled to Maryland to speak with IBEW members about the ways his administration is fighting for working people and growing our economy from the bottom up and middle out. The president continues to deliver wins for working families – including record job creation, higher wages, infrastructure investments, and lower costs – and has a plan to finish the job he’s started.
He’s going to build on this economic progress and stand firm against Congressional Republicans’ proposals to raise costs, cut Social Security and Medicare, and increase the deficit by $3 trillion. These MAGA plans are massive giveaways to the ultra rich, big corporations, and Big Pharma at the expense of working families – and President Biden won’t stand for them.
